De Silvestro undergoes emergency surgery


The Swiss motorist will make a return to Supercars at the Great Race this year, partnering novice Kai Allen in a Dick Johnson Racing-run wildcard entry

She was set to jet to Australia today to start a compact screening schedule that was implied to consist of operating on both the 4th and 5th of September, followed by a 3rd test prior to Bathurst.

However those strategies have actually now altered after de Silvestro went through emergency situation surgical treatment to have her appendix got rid of.

She is presently recuperating in Switzerland with her travel to Australia postponed.

That has actually required the group to ditch its September 4 test, while the test on the fifth will go on with Allen at the wheel.

The remainder of the screening program will then be adjusted as soon as de Silvestro remains in the nation.

” Simona de Silvestro was because of land in Australia later on today ahead of wildcard screening at Queensland Raceway on the 4th and 5th of September,” checked out a declaration from the group.

‘ However due to an emergency situation operation needed to eliminate her appendix over the weekend, her arrival date in Australia has actually been pressed back.

” Simona is recuperating well in Switzerland and at this phase is expected to sign up with the group in Australia in mid-September. Alternative strategies are being scheduled wildcard screening ahead of the Repco Bathurst 1000.

” The Shell V-Power Racing Team wants Simona a quick healing and eagerly anticipates seeing her quickly.”

There will still be some screening action on September 4 with Blanchard Racing Team to run its Jake Kostecki/Aaron Love wildcard at Winton, while Grove Racing enduro finalizing Kevin Estre will have his very first taste of a Supercar at the exact same circuit.

All 11 Supercars groups will then evaluate on September 5 as preparations for the Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000 increase.

Queensland Raceway will host DJR, Triple Eight, Matt Stone Racing and PremiAir Racing, while Tickford Racing, Walkinshaw Andretti United, Grove Racing, Erebus Motorsport, Team 18, BRT and Brad Jones Racing all performing at Winton.
