Fraser ruled out of test day due to illness

Declan Fraser to miss pre-season test day with illness.

20 February 2023

Tickford Racing rookie Declan Fraser has been ruled out of Wednesday’s pre-season test day at Sydney Motorsport Park due to illness.

The 22-year-old took part in the first shakedown of his new Gen3 Mustang at Winton last Wednesday while under the weather with a sore throat.

Following the test day, Fraser received medical attention which included antibiotics and IV fluids, but doctors have recommended rest to ensure Fraser is fully recovered in time for the opening round at Newcastle in just over two weeks’ time.

The all-in test on Wednesday will instead see the #56 Mustang driven by the Tickford enduro co-driver line up.

“Giving the co-drivers some extra time in the car early on is certainly not going to hurt and we’ll have the added benefit of getting feedback and also gives them the chance to get to grips with the Gen3 a little earlier too. We’re focussed on making some good out of an unfortunate situation,” said Tickford Racing CEO Tim Edwards.

“Declan is a fit young bloke and we’re confident he’ll be back, fighting fit and ready to go in no time.”
