Holdsworth set to start race after roll-over

Lee Holdsworth will start this afternoon’s final V8 Supercars race at Barbagallo Raceway, despite rolling his Commodore during qualifying.

The Team 18/Walkinshaw Racing entry rolled gently less than five minutes into this morning’s 20-minute session, after Holdsworth ran wide at turn six.

The car spent several minutes on its passenger door side, during which time Holdsworth clambered out of the driver’s door, before being rolled back onto its wheels and towed back to the pits.

Motorsport.com understands that the car’s only damage was a broken mirror, and that it will be ready to start this afternoon’s race from 25th and last.
