Happy Mother's Day!

Hey everyone, I hope you’re all well and are treating your lovely Mums this brilliant Sunday. Off anywhere nice for dinner? Or bought her some nice flowers? Whatever you’re doing I hope you have a great time.

So, on with the daily, there really isn’t much F1 news this fine weekend so how about some news on Hamilton’s brother who has been racing? Well Nicholas Hamilton is racing in the Renault Clio Cup this weekend. As you may expect our 2008 World Champion was also at the Kentish track. I’ve not seen reports on how he did yesterday, but keep your eyes pealed today to see if anything appears.

There is very little racing news other than the BTCC qualifying is anyone going to the race today? If so please make sure you keep the comments up to date. Perhaps if there are a group of people going you could have a sidepodmeetup!

My last F1 related mention of the day is just a reminder that the very awesome BBC documentary Jackie Stewart: The Flying Scot is on BBC 2 at 5:30pm this evening, and BBC iplayer shortly afterwards. If you missed it when it was originally shown you really must watch it, it’s a great documentary done in the style of Graham Hill: Driven tv programme. It’s very informative and a really brilliant watch.

Have you heard the news?! Sidepodcast’s very own Alex Giggles Andronov was in Hello! Magazine yesterday! Yes that’s right, he’s THAT famous! Speaking of Alex, please remember Giggles Radio is on today at 4pm.

… Now it’s time for the arty section of our Sunday, watch out for videos, photos and cartoons this week!..

• Ever wondered how to use reflections in a different but very very awesome way in your photographs? Well here is an idea.

• Here’s some cute kittens… why?... everyone loves kittens… right?..

• And here are some cute cuddly massive animals

• If you’re just the tiniest bit interesting in photography you really must check out this short documentary on why photojournalism is important and why it is so inspirational.

• I’ve recently discovered Vladimr Rys' website. He’s a very talented F1 photgrapher, make sure you take a look at his work too.

• Lastly, please take some time to look at my flatmate’s documentary short film. It was done for his Semester one work and I really love it. I hope you’ll all take a few moments to watch it, and if you really like it why not tweet him? He’d be more than happy to hear any feedback you all have!

Finally I want to leave you with a very special arty link. Something I found earlier in the week and just loved. I hope you will too.. Chris Labrooy is amazing at illustrations and he’s recently done some Formula 1 related images. Please check them out, they are brilliant.

Have a lovely day everyone, and remember – Giggles radio.. 4pm, don’t miss it.
