"Gentlemen, make yourselves at home!" he says, budging up the sofa. So here we are with one of the biggest rock stars in the world and his lovely wife, Brenda, sat in their silver Airstream while he does a Dale Winton impression and a fluffy grey cat chases a bottle top around the floor. "Brenda, me darlin', pass us a biscuit," he says.
He sings something bluesy, as he watches the race out of the corner of an eye. His leg bounces up and down uncontrollably. I try aiming a few questions in his direction, but he's distracted. He's due in the car again soon and wants to get back to the garage, so he fires up a golf cart and leaves. The gearbox problems cost them 10 laps, and they're running down in 45th place overall.
