The Welsh Grand Prix Blog

It's motorsport, isn't it?


with 5 comments

In the real world, I am currently a Masters student studying Modern History at the University of Warwick, though my home is the Rhondda Fach valley in South Wales, a deprived but beautiful area of Britain most closely associated in motorsport with Rally GB.

I’ve been forced to watch motor racing since birth and it didn’t take long for it to catch on. As a Damon Hill fan, I followed the highs and lows of the late 1990s, from title glory to parking up on the parade lap in consecutive races and then victory at Spa in 1998. I followed less closely in the early 2000s when that German bloke won loads of races and made everyone else look silly, but I enjoyed it more when Ferrari decided to build a rubbish car in 2005, and ever since then I’ve been completely hooked (as opposed to just hooked). And no, I am not an insider. This blog is just opinions, discussion and motorsport history, although if you have some insider information you would like to share, my phone number is…

A list of articles I’ve written outside of my blog can be found here

    • Chris has got back and says it’s because he’s had payment issues and it should be all sorted soon. So no major drama
