Tony turns 50
Tony Farrar, last year’s Provincial Grand Junior Warden turned 50 recently and as a special birthday treat his wife Amanda arrange a trip to watch one of Tony’s favourite sports, Formula One Motor racing.
This race in question had an extra special twist as it was to be held in Singapore.
Ready for the Race
Four days before the race Tony and Amanda set off on the long journey to Singapore in anticipation of another win for Tony’s favourite driver, Lewis Hamilton.
After watching the practice sessions it became clear that all was not well with the previously dominate Mercedes team and maybe Tony’s hope of seeing a win for Lewis may not happen.
By the Pit Wall
Sadly for Tony, Lewis had to retire the car on lap 31 due to a throttle problem.

Tony spotted a very tempting offer in the duty free shop at Singapore’s Changi airport, but not being a whiskey drinker he declined.
