Our Fab Day Out at Donington Park

Why is it, that what to wear on a Day Out at Donington Race Track becomes more important than whether you have the correct documentation needed to partake in such an event?
Luckily my dawning realisation - travelling through the Peak District without both parts of my driving licence - that all the weeks of merticulous wardrobe planning might have fallen at the first huddle! How "sick as a parrot" would I have been watching Jo swerving through the cones at red hot speeds.
Luckily I was saved by DH faxing it through so that I could fully enjoy the days events.
Test driving the the S-Max and the 4x4 Kuga out on the roads with a heavy police presence started off our exciting day followed by an informed presentation on the new safety features that come as standard on Ford models.
After a pit stop the fun really kicked in with both of us getting behind the wheel of a Ranger off roader - followed by testing the effectiveness of the anti braking systems on a Kuga whilst travelling at speed, negotiating obstacles on the track. And finishing on a high with a v speedy lap in a Focus RS. No not us driving unfortunately (although I am sure I could of shown him a thing or two!) but a professional racing instructor showed us how it is done properly - white knuckles are unavoidable.
Who can stop the ridiculous situation of having a two part driving licence? If anyone knows who I can address a rant to please let me know! Cheers
And cheers Mumsnet and Ford - fab cars, fab people and fab day!
