Singapore GP Off-Track second feature

It happened rather quickly after the Canadian GP and before the start of my Eurotrip for Le Mans and British GP. I had a quick chat with Raziff from SGP to share my opinion on the issues in Montreal, and he was kind enough to offer me the audience of this year’s Singapore GP volunteers by featuring some excerpts from my earlier blog post in the new Off-track newsletter.

After reading the published article I was a bit concerned that I sounded very insensitive to the situation, which I definitely am not – I am sincerely saddened by the outcome and send my condolences to the family and friends of the poor marshal. (I do expect to get a slap in the face by a Canadian who may have taken offence to my words at the next event I volunteer in Canada) Though the sentiment I heard both in France and the UK is very much shared by other marshals. We could never be too safe volunteering.

On my way home from the Phillipines earlier this year Raziff and Russell surprised me at Changi Airport by taking me out to a quick dinner I organized. And after sharing my experiences from the seven back to back races in Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia, Raziff asked for a little write up… which he just published to the 1,200 Singapore GP marshals volunteering for the 2013 season. Massive thanks to Raziff for the shout-out!

Looking forward to the Singapore trip this September… not just for the GP, but for the amazing food of Southeast Asia and another R&R visit to Malaysia and Thailand.
