    Sad day indeed, Stuart has been responsible for the continued development of GTL at RD, turning it into the most friendly on-line group here. We owe you so much, and I hope you can return soon after a refreshing break.
    See you soon, I hope.

    I am so sorry to hear that. Stuart have done so much for this league, for the Racing Club and for us - drivers. He have been there all the time - it can't be expressed in a short way. And he's the icon of sportsmanship, respectful to other drivers on the track, being an example. Thank you.

    I hope we will see this gentleman again in action soon!

    :speechless: ...

    I could make a very very lengthy post here (like I usually do:D ) and I'd still just scratch the surface of everything Stuart has done for GTL here at RD and for our enjoyment, and what that means to me personally. But I think we all do know already..

    One way or another Stu, I really hope you can find a way to fit GTL and our little group here back in your life and enjoy it like you made us enjoy it, preferably someday soon!

    For now:

    All the best Thommo, I'm sure you'll be back in some capacity in the future. Maybe a little break will get those GTL juices flowing again stronger than ever! Pretty much my whole introduction into the world of proper sim-racing occurred in the RD GTL club under your administration, so I'm enormously grateful to you for giving up your own time to ensure folk like me just need to turn up and race.

    Best wishes sir!

    Indeed, most of my driving was in the GTL club. Great events, nice atmosphere, fun all round. Never could replicate the experience anywhere else.

    Hope you'll get more free time and interest to get back into it again.

    Wait, so this wasn't an April Fools joke?

    This is a big change in the GTL world obviously, but hopefully it will be good for you, Stu. We all know how these things can start to tire you and a deep breath of fresh air without the load on your shoulders can do wonders. Thanks for all your efforts and stay awesome :)

    What a loss for GTL!!! But it's about time Thommo gets a well deserved break. You will be missed buddy. I hope you come back at some point and race with us, even if you don't find the time to be staff again. We'll try our best to keep the club/league friendly to the new guys (like I was once) and to uphold the standards you set in place.

    Stuart Thomson - sorry to hear this Stuart, haven't had much to do with you directly as I've been an RDer for a while, but on GTL for only a short period. That said I've always found you to be helpful and extremely competent both on track and off. The post and feeling that you'll be missed run deeper than even this thread shows. I like everyone else thankyou for all your help, attitude and input into RD, as Rupe said.. a sad day. I've no idea of the reasons for this, that you want a break is all we do need to know. I hope it's short term and to see you back, sooner rather than later, you have friends here, that's plain for all to see. That comes not from just being an admin, and doing your 'job'. Hope you get the GTL urge back soon. In the meantime all the best and know we will all be pleased to see you back, staff or otherwise. Respect.
