Whilst I am not a great fan of the metal dreams skin I have to agree that it does fit in well with the rest of the site.
I think it is great that you have done this for your dad - and why would we be hard on you? You are just discovering how rewarding setting up the blog is... :D
I do have a couple of points - I hope they are constructive...
The image to the main web site doesn't scale down too well - the text is unreadable. I don't think that it would look out of place at full size and centered on the page - with 'Riding the Circuit' centered underneath it. It would make it fit seamlessly with the rest of the site.
The calendar is a little hard to read placed directly over the background - perhaps you could set the background for the calendar to white - or even to #858384 (the neutral grey that is in the background) and change the text to white - it would make it look quite stunning I think.
