Never met him but naturally I wish him the best for a full recovery.

This must be a massive blow for Stuart and his family.

I first met Stuart at Curborough. I was really impressed with his driving and his car. He patiently answered the 101 questions I had about his set-up and chosen lines on the course.

I'd like to think he could get back to where he was before his heart attack but I'm not sure about MSA rules and pacemakers ..I guess it doesn't sound promising from that point of view.

I'm gutted for him. A genuine talent and a really nice man.

And, to whoever gave him medical attention, thanks for saving a top bloke.

Nicest bloke you could ever hope to meet, Hearing that he still has his good sense of humour is no surprise to me :lol: And he is one hell of a driver :wink:

Oh, I've lusted after Stuart's Imp on many an occasion. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: And I've seen him hurl the car around Curborough more than once too. He is indeed talented behind the wheel. :wink:
