Ronnie O'Sullivan endured mixed fortunes as he made his debut as a motor racing driver.
O'Sullivan was at Silverstone this weekend racing in the VW Cup. He qualified at the back of the grid for the first race but spun off into a gravel trap, which he described as "a novice mistake."
He fared better in the second race, finishing 14th, which was creditable considering this was his first taste of action.
"At least I got a whole race in. It was a good experience, I enjoyed it very much and now I'm looking forward to having another crack at Brands Hatch next month," O'Sullivan said.
