HSCC (3 hr w/end) Snetterton Formula Ford Boys. Thanks.

We would like to apologise for the crashes at the Sunday Meeting of the Autosport 3 hours weekend.

But mainly....the 2 involved would like me to pass on their thanks to all the marshalls and the medical boys for their great service to them.

You'll be pleased to know that one of our fold has returned, bruised, battered but without broken bones back home to Brighton in the loving care of his wife Caroline. Neil Davies (no 6) was released from Norwich Assessment Ward on Monday 1st at 11 am taken to see his equally battered car, then returned to his ever-loving and by 9 pm should have been home and tucked up with a cup of cocoa. Apart from an aching shoulder and wrist is looking forward to receiving his first repair estimate......

NOT so pleasing is the fate of our Terry Tumber who stopped the race the first time when avoiding a spinner decided to stuff himself into the tyres at Riches. His wife Viv (11.30 Mon eve) tells me that after being released from above-mentioned hospital on Sunday evening and staying at a local hotel his back pains increased to the point of when he returned home his GP ordered him to be re-examined. After X-rays it was found he had a fractured Sternum AND a shattered F1 vertebrae and is staying in the true Formula Ford style.....ie flat out.. at a Hospital in London.

Both (and the whole grid too I'm sure) would like thank you guys & gals. Without you we couldn't have the fun we were having....er up to that point that is....

Thanks for the up-date Dikko, I'm sure that we all wish Terry a very speedy recovery,I suppose it just had to be the F1!

Thanks dikko,
Great to hear that Neil is OK.It didn't look good from Sear.
Hope Terry makes a full and swift recovery and we see both of them again soon.
Get well soon Terry.

Hi Terry,
I was hiding at Riches In on Saturday, blue flagging for the 3 hour. What a great race! Shame we didn't get to meet. I was in the bar on Saturday night and had a swift one on Sunday, you should have joined us. Maybe next time.

Great to see you back at the track Dikko on Sunday, and to hear Neil has nothing broken. Sorry to hear about Terry and the missed fractures, but thankfully at least they have been found now. The Junior collecting area was pretty moribund when we heard you and Neil had gone off, since we've been racing you both for YEARS! Glad it's all now OK - cheers from me and John (and Johnnie)

Thursday 4 June. Good news from Terry Tumbers wife Viv is that no operation is necessary on Terry's damaged vertebrae to their relief, he is still flat out and fed up in West Middlesex Hospital but will be fitted with a back brace soon which he won't be able to part with for about 6 weeks.
There is no serious bruising to internal organs from his sternum damage and although tender is being left to heal.

Neil Davies' general damage is steadily changing colour and in his own words is "looking like a summer pudding". He is well enough to be gently taken to the pub by Caroline... He is already planning his come-back and is seeking advice from all and sundry as to how he can make his repair budget go a long way. Any Lotus 61 parts should be directed his way please...he needs a lot...

I'm sure all the HFF boys wish them full recovery ASAP so we can enjoy their good company again.
