Default Richard Burns in the Hospital

Former world rally champion Richard Burns is recovering in hospital on Tuesday after brain surgery.

Doctors have described the operation, which took place on Tuesday, as 'very successful'.

A statement issued on behalf of Burns said: "The 2001 World Rally Champion was diagnosed with an astrocytoma, a form of brain tumour, in November 2003 and has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment.

"He had been recovering well since leaving hospital last summer, however his doctors decided to go ahead with today's operation after Burns experienced some health problems in recent weeks."

I wonder if he'll ever be back behind the wheel of a Rally car.

He was just hitting his stride

Man, just when things were starting to look good for him. I wish him the best of luck with his recovery and hopefully this will be the last surgery he has to have.

Speedy recovery, Richard.

I was hoping that no news was good news since I hadn't heard anything in quite a while. Sad to hear that's not the case.

What little news has been trickling out is not good

I seriously doubt that Richard will ever be competing again let alone in WRC

I found this posted on a motorsports forum:

Quote:
And in other sad rally news, word is trickling out on some rally forums that I visit that the health of 2001 WRC champion Richard Burns is not good. Burns blacked out during the recce of Rally GB in 2003 and was diagnosed with a brain tumor soon thereafter.

A Richard Burns Day took place a few weeks ago in which people from the rally community and fans came out to see a lot of the machinery that Burns had competed in during his career. Burns attended, but no photos of him appeared in mainstream media and rally Web sites and publications that I read frequently.

Now I know why. I saw a pic of Burns from that day on a rallying forum last night, and you can barely recognize him. It was a nice pic of Burns and his former WRC co-driver Robert Reid smiling behind the wheel of a car. But Burnsie appears to have aged 40 years and has gained a ton of weight due to his illness and treatment. It was really stunning and sad.

Unfortunately no news about those kind of things usually means bad news.

Unfortunately from the couple of descriptions from people who have been around him lately, that is sadly not likely to be the case

Look at Armstrong also. I know its almost a cliche now... but he also had it quite bad before rebounding and dominating.
