After winning a ticket to the British round of the MotoGP circus last week and having secured a ride from Edinburgh to Silverstone with a photographer I was yesterday informed morning that the ride had went pear shaped.

The photographer I was getting a ride from was admitted to hospital and was being kept in. This left me with not much hope of being able to get there so yesterday morning I took to twitter to see if anyone was passing. Several hundred people retweeted my appeal and so did a few of the racers I sent the plea to.

After several hours smashing hell out of everyone’s timeline I managed to sort out a car for a couple of days. I’ll be headed to Silverstone on Friday and will be at the campsite in the early evening.
