Meyrick to miss Spa.

Andy Meyrick is to miss the latest rounds of the British F3 International F3 Series at Spa due to the illness that also forced him to sit out the race weekend at Brands Hatch.

The 22-year-old Carlin driver had dominated proceedings in the National Class until he was forced to stand down from his driver ahead of Brands Hatch after being taken to hospital, and medical tests have now deemed that he will be unable to make the trip to the famed Belgian Grand Prix venue.

“Obviously I'm incredibly disappointed not to be able to race at Spa this weekend,” he said. “Not only is it one of the most exciting tracks in Europe, missing two more rounds is a massive blow to my season in British F3.

“Becoming ill in the middle of the year was the worst thing possible, but I have to put aside my frustration at the situation and focus on getting better soon.”

Carlin director Martin Stone added that the most important thing from the team's point of view was for Meyrick to fully recover to allow him to make his return to the track.

“It's too early to say yet when Andy will be able to return to racing, the priority at the moment is for him to receive the best care possible and to make a good recovery,” he said. “The positive news is that Andy is feeling some improvement day-by-day, and I'm sure no-one is more anxious than he is to see him in a race car again soon.”
