There were lots of great fancy dress outfits including, The Stig, several Bernie Ecclestone’s and a surprise visit from Penelope Pitstop!As the rain eventually subsided the fire-pits were lit and the 100 plus friends and family danced on into the night under a Formula 1 themed marquee. Entertainment was provided by Daniel from Blackpool, who dazzled guests with an array of instruments including a saxophone and guitar.The office team put on a selection of treats including a Formula 1 cake and a celebratory pork pie (David’s favourite) to mark this landmark birthday.Happy Birthday David!
