During one of the fuel stops that would make the average Formula1 pit crew member fear for their job, we receive bad news from the organization. The iconic army-tent-filled outdoor “Village” had been declared inaccessible due to stormy weather. Instead Plan B comes to play; set up shop indoors. Not the news we were after, knowing the Village is one of the elements that gives the event its incredible vibe.
That said, we decided not to worry. We’ve known the Southsiders for some time now, so whatever the alternative was, we were confident that they had it covered. Besides, we were halfway to Biarritz and covered in sunshine. How bad could it be?
