FPV F6X – thwarted by winter weather and nasty germs

FPV F6X – thwarted by winter weather and nasty germs

Storms bashed the north island over the last few days and I was lucky to even get a photo shoot in for the F6X, let alone give it the caning it deserves (and you expect).  I’ve got some kind of man cold that is preventing me from getting the best out of the car, and now I’ve swapped the F6X for the equally enthralling FPV GT I’m at home while my body feels like it’s breaking apart and my head is about to explode.

I have the good fortune of a sympathetic and nurturing girlfriend, but don’t use that as an excuse to be ill – I hate being sick. The last time I took a sick day was when I broke two ribs about 7 years ago. One sick day. That was all. The problem with broken ribs is you can’t do anything about it anyway, so you might as well be in pain and earning money as opposed to being in pain not earning money – that’s the worst thing about being self-employed.

I broke the ribs in a karting accident, but ignored the pain and went on to score second place and a nice trophy. This headache feels every bit as bad, but I doubt there’ll be any silverware at the end of the day.
