Glad to hear you're sounding a bit more positive! Not sure about the "nerves" thing...when I'm racing I keep thinking I should be nervous but for some reason it doesn't really happen...very briefly before I get into the car, as I'm donning my helmet and gloves, but then I'm away and too busy concentrating on the next couple of seconds to think about being nervous....but my mate that I share the drive with gets really wound up beforehand, can't eat, just wants to be alone...different strokes for different folks, I guess...or maybe I just don't have enough imagination!Whatever - rooting for you, kid....so you're racing when, exactly...Wednesday?
