It seems like an absolute lifetime ago now that I was taking my driving lessons and learning how to drive. It’s one of those things that really makes you step back and realise how quickly time is going! As with most teenagers in the UK, I started learning to drive when I was 17, my lessons kindly being a birthday present from my parents. Although I’m heavily into Motorsport and cars now, I wasn’t at the time – driving what just something I wanted to do because I wanted my independence as an 18 year old and learning to drive was the next logical step.
If you’re my Twitter friend, you may have noticed that I like Formula 1… A little bit. Okay, a lot. I recently wrote about my first ever Formula 1 experience at the Silverstone mid-season test in August and this month the Formula 1 experiences continued when I made my first ever visit to the Donington Park Formula 1 museum in Derby. This was a belated birthday present from my parents, who kindly paid for my boyfriend and I to stay overnight near the museum and obviously visit the museum itself. I would be super cliché and say I didn’t know what to expect but of course I did know what to expect… Cars. A lot of them.
