Stanaway to miss Darwin due to ongoing neck issues
Jun 13, 2019
Following Richie’s medical withdrawal from Race 14 of the Supercars Championship at Winton Raceway, he has been undergoing treatment from Supercars doctor, Dr Carl. Due to the recurrence of neck issues originating from a high speed accident at Spa in a Formula Renault 3.5 in 2012, he has been advised by Dr. Carl and a neurosurgeon to undergo further treatment to be fit and race ready for Townsville. Since Winton, Richie’s health had been improving on a daily basis, yet he suffered a set back a couple of days ago. As per Winton, Richie’s Enduro Cup partner and GRM TCR Driver, Chris Pither will fill in for Richie and race the #33 Boost Mobile Commodore at Darwin.
