The push began today to get "The Chain" to # 1 in the UK. Over at the Facebook Group: "Get 'The Chain' to number 1 for the new F1 season" members began today feverishly buying the track from "The Very Best Of" Fleetwood Mac album from various UK digital download retailers. So far they've managed to push the track to # 10 on the Top Rock Song downloads chart on itunes in the UK, and since this morning, when I begain following it's trajectory, I watched as the track started off at # 269 in overall digital download sales up to # 135 where it's sitting at the moment. Impressive!  

If you are in the UK... Join the action!  The group has amassed a sizable following approaching 5,000 in a very short time. Fans of F1 and Fleetwood Mac united.. It's great to see.

      Getting The Chain to number will be tough - the facebook group doesn't have enough numbers. This campaign needs to be a bit more viral and quickly.

      I am doing my bit.
