Default What is happening tomorrow?

I have seen several notices reminding me that Regent Street is to be
closed during the day tomorrow, Tuesday 6 July. Yesterday, when being
driven across Hyde Park on our way home from a weekend away, we noticed
that all public roads in it, too, will be closed tomorrow.

What am I missing? I mean, is something special happening that
everybody knows about and I'm just dim, or is it something obscure?
Anybody know?

I think tomorrow is the Formula 1 demonstration event. Nigel Mansell and
others will be driving F1 cars up and down Regent Street. Probably best
not to allow pedestrians to wander across while it's happening.

Indeed not! I might even go and watch, though.....

What is the actual purpose of this event, and why is being allowed to
disrupt the commercial life of central London again, just a week after a
Tube strike?


It seems to be a "proof of concept" for a possible future London Grand
Prix on city streets (like Monaco).

Is there perhaps a charity that will benefit, or is it
just to inject some interest into the Schumacher-led procession on
Sunday, otherwise known as the Silverstone Grand Prix?


No doubt they'll advertise Silverstone, and the timing (with all the
drivers already in the country) is fairly predictable.

I think Hyde Park is being closed for QEII and a bunch of other royalties to
attend the official unveiling of the Princess Di memorial water feature

Poor them! Ah well.....
