So as if the weekend couldn’t get any better, spending the day watching warbirds & F16’s fly around beautiful Wanaka, my brother Steve rang me to tell me that him and his long time girlfriend Jess got engaged…! How cool! I’m looking forward to the wedding already, and having another sister! As their official self proclaimed third wheel in their relationship I couldn’t be happier.
After that news, I drove down to Queenstown to meet them for dinner and a few much needed celebratory drinks! Certainly a weekend to remember, congrats again guys 😀
Man, what a weekend… it was so incredibly cool to finally be inside the F1 paddock, and get to see my ultimate goal from behind the scenes, right amongst it all.
The week leading up to it, the GP weekend itself, and the 4 days after have been some of the busiest days I think I’ve ever had, between my role with Acronis, our F1 partnerships, and our partnerships outside of F1… not to mention networking, presenting at our guests brunch, and ultimately enjoying myself!
One of my highlights of the weekend was being able to catch up with some of my old engineers & mechanics from my F3 days, who are now all working in F1… so it was super cool to catch up with them and see them in their element.
I’ve finally got some down time now on my flight home, so I’m catching up on admin, my blog + other projects I’ve got going on right now…! Looking forward to getting home and seeing Einstein and my family & friends… not so sure about coming home to colder weather though haha….
