Hydraulink Jim Read Racing is pleased to announce that it will be taking part in round five of the Burson Auto Parts Australian Top Fuel Championship at Heathcote Park Raceway next weekend (May 21-22).
Following the startline incident on the Saturday of round four at Sydney last weekend, the team has undertaken in-depth investigations into the car and decided it will be able to compete at next weekend’s event following the undertaking of some repairs.
“Obviously after something like that, you go through everything with a fine-tooth comb, so we have taken our time over the last few days to really assess the damage and analyse every inch of the car,” Hydraulink Jim Read Racing Crew Chief, Bruce Read, said.
“While obviously there is quite a lot of damage, we were very relieved to find that the chassis itself was unaffected.
“The crew is hard at work now to ensure we can replace all the necessary components and have the car fully prepped and ready to roll out again in plenty of time for round five of the Burson Auto Parts Australian Top Fuel Championship.
“Everyone on the team is very excited to waste no time in getting back onto the track, and I am very thankful for the dedication and enthusiasm of our crew who will make this possible.
“Once again, I also want to acknowledge and thank everyone who has taken the time to send messages of support, offer assistance, and generally wish us well since Saturday.
“It has been very uplifting for the team to have everyone behind us like that and we hope we can repay you all with some strong results in Victoria next weekend!”
