Weel given all-clear after Bathurst crash

Paul Weel has been given the medical all-clear after CT scans showed no major damage following his accident during practice for the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama on Friday morning.

Although he escaped serious injury, however, Weel's father and team owner Kees said that his son would remain in hospital for a few days with some bruising and a cracked rib.

“Paul is not about to run around the block, but he's fine and looking forward to getting back with the team for Indy in a couple of weeks time,” Weel Sr said, “He is totally with us and complaining already, so that means he's back to normal. He will be out of hospital in the next couple of days a little sore and sorry, but otherwise all good.”

Weel was also glowing in his praise of the New South Wales Ambulance and Team Medical Australia that were on the scene within minutes of his son's brush with the barrier and subsequent coming together with Chris Pither near the McPhillamey Park section of the Mount Panorama circuit, and had his son at the Philips/Sonosite Medical Centre in good time.

“They were absolutely incredible,” he said, “From the moment of the accident, and when I arrived at the medical centre, their professionalism and precision was simply outstanding. Those guys deserve all the praise they can get, they are brilliant.”

Weel also thanked all of those people who had inquired about Paul after the accident.

“The response has been humbling and we thank everybody involved,” he noted, “Paul is going to be recovering for a few days, so it will be difficult to get back to everybody, but your good wishes have not been really appreciated.

“The main thing is that Paul is absolutely fine.”
