Last night the Hurlingham Club in London hosted the annual Grand Prix Ball, with music from pop rock band The Feeling, Eddie Jordan and superstar DJ Seb Fontaine.

There was a retro F1 demo in the form of Jackie Stewart’s old Tyrrell-March 701, which did a good job of not sliding off on the croquet lawn. Then guests were treated to salmon, guinea fowl and creme brulee before hitting the dance floor.

I was sat at a table with James Hunt’s son Tom and the ’76 world champion’s brother, David, along with their lovely girlfriends. Having seen Rush earlier this week in a private screening it was great to compare notes on the film. There’s an embargo on reviewing the movie till its September release date, so I’ll hold back for now, except to say you won’t be disappointed!

Once the champagne and vodka was exhausted we all headed to Kings Road club Raffles.

Thanks to Jonny Dodge and his team for a great night, and roll on Sunday’s @gpafterparty.
