New Chassis on Standby
Super Black racer Chris Pither has spoken about the crash that left his Ice Break Falcon smashed up at the exit of turn four at Symmon Plains. The Safety Car was called on lap five, the V8 Supercar stranded though Pither walked away from the accident.
Pither is racing a spare Prodrive car, which is in fact a Dunlop Series chassis, after a substantial accident at the opening round the Clipsal 500. Replays of the incident were unclear, but Pither told v8supercars.com his side of the story and confirmed Nick Percat was the other driver involved.
“The outcome is just disappointing, I think we’ve been making some really good progress across the AGP and yup to this point this weekend and I just feel for my team, they’ve done a really good job and got no reward again.”Pither says he is fine physically after the accident.
Prodrive boss Tim Edwards hopes his team can avoid rushing the completion of a brand new chassis for Phillip Island.
