With Race Image Motorsport a last minute withdrawal from the previous Fujitsu V8 Supercar series round at Townsville and not entering the Sandown round, Drew Russell has been forced to look at his options for the remainder of the season.

"Unfortunately Race Image Motorsport were unable to make the trip to Townsville and I was gutted not to have been able to race at the new circuit," said Drew.

"After a solid start to the season, including leading my first Fujitsu V8 Supercar race at Winton, I was really looking forward to fighting with the front runners this season.

"Missing these rounds will impact significantly on my aim of finishing in the top five of the championship and it is obviously very frustrating to be in this position.

"I am now speaking to a number of people about the reminder of the season and I should be in a position to announce my plans for the remainder of the season in the coming weeks.

"I recognise that I am now facing an uphill battle, but I can assure you I will be back even stronger before the end of the season, chasing a podium finish or two."
