I tried to keep up but I'm not as confident as you guys so you gradually disappeared. I think I held steve up on the first stint so I stayed back after that.

Plus a denzil lump is not in the same league as your lot in the twisties

One thing I do know is some of you can really drive, its not just the amount of power below your right foot.

I gave it to a work mate who was ill for a month too. Same as you he was in bed for a week. He had asthma and got it quite bad.

Both me and my baby daughter got it. I stayed in bed for a day or 2 with aches and fever but then felt fine, just a temperature so went back to work soon after. That's when I gave it to him, my temperature lasted about a week but I felt quite ok. It must affect everyone differently. If I knew I had swine flu at the time I would never had gone in to work as I know how dangerous it can be for some.

It stemmed from my daughters nursery, that's how we found out.

Always best to stick to your own comfort levels Ben and there's no right or wrong imo.

I've said it before.........everyone with the exception of one (long story and not on here), I've driven with on meets have all been really good drivers, and made the meets all the better for it.
