Speed bump for race car driver but big pic­ture re­mains

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY race car driver Wayne Udy trav­elled to War­wick last week­end to de­fend his 2014 Cham­pi­onship in the Queens­land Pro­duc­tion Sports Car se­ries.

Although the full-time diesel fit­ter, part­time race car driver didn’t fin­ish up on the podium, Udy was pleased to bring his Killer Signs Porsche 997 Cup Car home in one piece.

The cham­pi­onships were held at the Mor­gan Park Race­way where Udy place third in his first race, fourth in the sec­ond, fifth in the third and over­all fourth for the week­end.

Udy’s team ‘Killer Rac­ing’ is named af­ter ma­jor spon­sor Killer Signs.

Last week­end was Udy’s first time rac­ing his Porsche since Novem­ber last year and was all in prepa­ra­tion for his race at the Aus­tralian GT se­ries at the Townsville 400 this July.

“I'm ex­cited for Townsville but I have so much work prior to get­ting the car on the grid [that] I would say it's more stress. If it all goes well with the car I am pretty con­sis­tent on my end as I pay for the dam­age my­self and like be­ing on the limit as you prob­a­bly no­ticed,” he said.

Udy said the at­mos­phere from last year’s Townsville 400 was in­de­scrib­able and ex­pects this year’s to be no dif­fer­ent.

He is spon­sored by Killer Signs, Cafe One 3, Quick Lube and Tyrepower Can­non­vale.
