Diabetic Rea Misses Race

Singer CHRIS REA was forced to pull out of a 24-hour motor race in England yesterday (10SEP05) after an infection caused him to become seriously ill.

The ROAD TO HELL hitmaker - who is diabetic - was due to take part in a practice session, driving a mini cooper at Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire, when he was rushed to hospital and put on an antibiotic drip.

His manager JOHN KNOWLES says, "An abscess on his leg developed and he was in so much pain."
