Damon Hill: Why Silverstone Will Always Have a Place in My Heart
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years

It's June, but the rain is pouring down. Outside, a cluster of umbrellas and rain-sodden macs bobs eagerly around at the paddock perimeter to catch a glimpse of one of 22 heroes who haven't even arrived yet.

I've been coming here since I was a baby, and Silverstone has a special place in my heart, my life, my memories and my career. My father also raced here, and my son has raced here; the Hill family are virtually resident (in whatever county that may be!) I won here in 1994 and it remains one of the best moments of my career.
