Hello everyone, it’s Sunday, which means it must be my turn to welcome you to this lovely day. I can’t promise it will be the warm sunny weather we’ve been experiencing in the UK lately, but I’m sure the comments will be as friendly as ever. Continuing on a theme Lukeh set in Friday’s daily post I would like to express an extra special welcome to all of the Lurkers out there and invite you to join us in the glorious world of the Sidepodcast comments. David dropped by to say ‘Hello’ on Friday and I’m sure I’m not the only regular commenter who was delighted to see someone ‘de-lurk’. Hopefully we’ll see more of you in the comments soon. Just in case anyone is stuck for anything to talk about I’ve collected some links for you all;

  • Although F1 appears to be in a sort of spring hibernation, the world of motorsport never stops and today promises to be another day of motorsports action. Yesterday saw the F3 race at Silverstone (which even Karun Chandock attended) and the Indycar race at Kansas (which many people live commented). Today is race day at Brands Hatch for the BTCC and I’m really excited about it. I’m not able to attend this weekend, but if anyone is, or went along for qualifying I’d love to hear how your day was!
  • Moving away from motorsport for a moment Saturday might also be known as ‘Dr Who day’ for some, and two of our biggest Dr Who fans have written two very fabulous posts on yesterday’s episode, so please check out Christine’s and Lukeh’s thoughts on the Doctor's latest adventure in the rather scary ‘flesh and stone’.
  • It’s Sunday, as I’ve already mentioned, which can mean only one thing- it’s time for another Giggles radio this afternoon! Last week’s can be found here for anyone who missed it.  However If a two hour radio show isn’t enough,  you can of course check out his latest goforodd podcast which is available here which is well worth a listen.

That’s about it for me today, I will leave you with the only piece of Formula 1 news I was able to find, which comes in the form of Mclaren’s Spanish GP preview in which Martin Whitmarsh tells us that Spain marks the ‘debut of an exciting new visual identity inside the garage, which will feature a completely new look.’ Sounds interesting, and I've been having a think about what this ‘exciting new visual identity’ is, perhaps its a new painting, or maybe even a huge cardboard cut out of Jenson?  If anyone has any ideas please let us know in the comments. I hope you all have a lovely Sunday!
