After a tip off that F1 driver Lewis Hamilton was filming at the Goodwood Motor Circuit today I popped up there this afternoon armed, with my camera. Sadly I??d just missed him but the film crew were still on the start/finish straight setting up some close up shots of the McLaren MP4 12C so I stayed on for a while and took some photos from the top of the pit complex. It was fascinating to see them working out their angles and every so often one of the McLaren team drove the car enthusiastically away for the camera. Eventually they brought the car back into the pitlane so I went downstairs and had a brief chat with the chap who had been driving the car. It seems they were filming for the special edition of Jim??ll Fix It [en.wikipedia.org] which is being shown over the Christmas holiday as a memorial to Jimmy Savile who died recently. It??ll be interesting to watch the programme to see if I can spot the shots they took while I was there.
Jim'll fix it for you!
