Caborn rides with Minardi

In an effort to promote the British Grand Prix the British Minister of Sport was given a ride in a Minardi two-seater in London's Hyde Park on Friday.

The Rt. Hon. Richard Caborn MP was driven by Minardi driver Justin Wilson along the North Carriage Drive, which runs parallel to the Bayswater Road. The car was then put through a racing pit stop.

"It was a real privilege and I was very lucky," said the Minister. "Justin is a superb driver and it was an unbelievable experience, made all the better by being in the middle of London's Hyde Park."You can feel the Gs really push you back into your seat - all in all it was a fantastic ride."

Tickets for the British Grand Prix are still available.
