Speed bump for race car driver but big picture remains
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.
