Red Bull non-Air Race

A friend and I set off early on Saturday to go and watch the British leg of the Red Bull Air Race World Series at Longleat. Unfortunately:

i) Due to the amount of traffic going to the event the journey took seven hours. It would normally take under three hours from where we set off in East London but the congestion was so bad that the final 20 miles from near Stonehenge took four hours.

ii) About an hour after we got there the organisers confirmed that the event was being cancelled due to strong gusty winds.

...all of which was "somewhat disappointing."

Here are some more photos of the Air Race not taking place:
