Unfortunately I couldn't race at Donington on medical grounds.. I woke up Saturday with pain in my leg... limping. it got worse... went to the medic at Donington Park who promptly sent me to A&E at Derby hospital!!! My thanks to Andy who helped me all day, as well as getting the car set up ready to race just in case!
I spent the rest of the day there being checked for a blood clot.. it was positive.. not good for racing, so Sunday morning we called in the Teams #2 driver...!! Andy's son Jamie Butcher.. who I used to race alongside in the Mark2 golfs 10 years ago... he hadn't raced in those 10 years, but was still up for it.. we put him in the seat after a lot of running around by Robert Sadler the organiser to get permission and Jamie went out for a test run and to enjoy himself, with instructions not to get in the way of any championship battles but to have fun and test the car... so he was at the back but having some fun none the less. I've been off work for 2 weeks recovering and hated it that I couldn't race but I will be back for Brands Hatch, with less of a limp!
