SAGE MURDOCH LOOKS TO BOUNCE BACK FROM DRAMATIC CRASH

Newcastle driver Sage Murdoch will be back behind the wheel in the Australian Formula Four series this weekend, having recovered from his dramatic crash in round three at Phillip Island.
Despite the incident, the teenager was happy with his effort in Victoria.
“I got my best position which was fourth, only finished one of the three races. Ran out of fuel in the first race and flipped in the last one.”
“I didn’t expect the gravel trap to flip me over but the speed I was going at around the corner was like 140.”
Murdoch’s car sustained plenty of damage, but with vehicle and driver now ready to go, the focus has turned to his first appearance at Queensland Raceway at Ipswich.
He says lead-up work has been promising.
“I’ve done 2 test days, one at Sydney and one at Wakefield Park.
“At the Sydney one I set the third fastest time ever for a Formula Four there.”
