’Car and fishing help me manage the situation’

Wade’s interest in buying and restoring old cars helped him manage his condition.

The four-time PTC World Championship semi-finalist added: „Cars really take my mind off it, which I was into at the time. It’s one of my escapes, maybe both that and fishing. Take my mind off it.

„Unfortunately, I don’t have a decent car at the moment. Nothing floats my boat or anything exciting.

„I’m not going to admit what car I’ve got, because any car fans out there will think I’m not what I’ve got.

„Recently I mentioned to my wife that I wanted a new motorbike and she said, 'I think you should win some prize money before you think about spending money on a motorbike.’

„Didn’t that hurt?”
