    Hey guys,

    Some of the UK racers here may have heard of this. Others may not have. Red Bull are hosting a competition at the Goodwood Festival of speed per Saturday and Sunday, for the UK's top 16 racers. The overall winner gets 2 tickets to the Abu Dhabi grand prix, including flights and accommodation, and a training session in their F1 simulator! And I'm very happy to say I have been selected for it! Even I I don't win it will be a great experience I'm sure :)

    I'm really excited about it and I wanted to share my experience with you guys. So over the course of the weekend I'll be posting updates over Twitter, so follow @ChrisButchie if you want to see those.

    And if there are any fellow RD members going to Goodwood, it would be nice to say hi to you, so pop by the Red Bull dome if you are there :)

    I'm cheering Chris on when watching the broadcast of the event. I'm only cheering Chris on because then I can say that I have overtaken the UK's Fastest Gamer :D
