The brilliance of seeing the cars live is unparalleled. The TV reduces the sound, size and speed of them. It is if anything, I would say, like seeing a band live instead of hearing the record. Your ears buzz for days afterwards.
On approaching the track and hearing the noise my uninitiated friend turned and said ‘I’m really frightened’; later she was to tell me she thought the sound would ‘consume her head’ it was so loud. Once she had calmed down, and seen a few of them go past, she told me ‘I just didn’t realise they were that fast’.
Now I just have to find £100 for the Grand Prix…
