Lee Holdsworth is on track to make a return to racing after briefly getting behind the wheel to help shakedown CS Racing’s all-new Holden Commodore chassis at Winton Raceway.

Holdsworth suffered a fractured pelvis and two broken ribs in a frightening opening lap accident at Hidden Valley in June, which caused major damage to the team’s sole Holden Commodore chassis.

He missed the following Townsville and Ipswich rounds of the championship while recuperating, where the Charlie Schwerkolt-owned team campaigned Kurt Kostecki’s Dunlop Series car while its damaged chassis underwent lengthy repairs.

The team has since obtained a new chassis – built by Triple Eight race Engineering – which will have its shakedown run ahead of next weekend’s Sydney Motorsport Park SuperSprint round, where Holdsworth’s endurance co-driver Karl Reindler will drive for the team.

Holdsworth has obtained medical clearance to return to racing after Sydney, with the next outing being the Wilson Security Sandown 500 in mid-September.
