#F1 FEATURE – British GP Like You Have Never Felt It Before

by on July 6, 2012

A little departure from my usual poetic style, but then the British GP warrants something a little different now doesn’t it…

Close your eyes
Hear that steady beat?
That’s the sound of your heart
As you approach your seat

Close your eyes
Can you feel the air?
It’s F1 electric
Too much for some to bare

Close your eyes
Can you hear the air gun
The tyres are on
Ready for a first run

Close your eyes
You can hear the car start
Feel the chill down your spine
As your nerves tear apart

Close your eyes
Approaching down the straight
Your heart skips a beat
Then beats double in rate

Close your eyes
Feel the vibrations
Through grandstands, up your legs
Spawning naughty sensations

Close your eyes
Smell the exhaust
That’s rubber and clutch
As all lines get crossed

Now open your eyes
Don’t miss this sight
It’s heaven on wheels
In a furious fight

See that beast twitch
Violently changing direction
Defying laws of physics
Fighting full disconnection

Feel the thrust of its force
As it straightens out
Under full throttle
As its tail dances about

Watch it mysteriously vanish
Into a dot in the distance
From a roar to a scream
To the sound of subsistence

Close your eyes
You can’t see it
Only smell it and hear it
And sense its raw spirit

That’s Formula One
It’s the British GP
Silverstone is its home
This Sunday, where will you be?
