Good news from Richard Burns

It looks like Richard is well on the road to recovery.

I have just read the very same thing on another forum. The full text of Richard said can be found at http://www.richardburns.com/news.cfm?flag=2&id=354

It sounds like he is on the mean, which is fantastic news. I am still not sure if we will see him back in the WRC. But this news today sounds very postive.

This is indeed encouraging. Realistically it's unlikely that he'll return to full-time racing, especially as there'll be less manufactuerer drives available by 2006, but this is much more important.

sjw75 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

Good news indeed, I got the following message via the Richard Burns Fanclub in email today:

Hi everyone,

As most of you know a year ago I was taken ill on the way to Rally GB and shortly afterwards I was diagnosed with a brain tumour. This was a total shock. I had been 100% committed to trying to win the WRC and suddenly, nothing was more important than my health and I had to commit 100% to beating my illness.

I don’t mind admitting it has been really really tough but I have remained positive and as happy as I can throughout. The support I have had from my doctors, family and friends has been fantastic.
Also I want to thank all the people who have sent me their good wishes – it really helps to know that my fans are still rooting for me and that I’m not forgotten!

I have been following the WRC on the television and I want to add my congratulations to Seb for winning the Championship this year. He is a very focussed driver and deserves this win.

Also I would like to wish Carlos a happy retirement, - he has been a dedicated and passionate rally driver throughout his years and the sport will miss him.

My treatment has been very intensive but I am now getting physically and mentally much stronger.

It is still too soon to think about what the future holds – I am just concentrating on trying to get back to a normal life.

The doctors still need to keep a close eye on me but, when they give me the OK to travel, I am looking forward to coming to see a rally sometime soon…maybe I will see you there!

Have a great Christmas, I will! and Best Wishes for 2005

Take Care

Richard
