Injury setback sidelines Stanaway for Darwin Supercars races

Richie Stanaway will miss this weekend's Darwin Supercars round due to a setback in the recovery of the neck injury that sidelined him at Winton.

The Garry Rogers Motorsport driver missed the Sunday race last time out at Winton thanks to a neck complaint believed to stem back to his nasty Formula Renault 3.5 crash at Spa in 2012.

He was diagnosed with a protruding disc in his neck days after the Winton round and began non-surgical treatment.

While hopes of him returning for Darwin were initially high, the squad has today confirmed that Chris Pither will once again sub for Stanaway, who has suffered a setback in his recovery.

"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," read a statement from the team.

"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 setback 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 Australia Commodore at Darwin."
