The Holden Racing Team was saddened to learn today that former HRT driver and 1990 Bathurst winner Win Percy has unfortunately become a paraplegic.

In a related series of events, Win hurt his back at the British Grand Prix in July, when the seat of the Historic car he was driving collapsed. Doctors advised him to rest to avoid further damage but it appears that Win caused further damage when he was lifting a paving stone while working in his garden.

Recently Win underwent surgery to alleviate the problem and medical experts are hopeful that Win will regain some (all?) movement in the next 18-months to 2 years as the nerve damage repairs itself but for the moment, he has been diagnosed as being paralysed from the chest down.

A successful touring and sports car driver, Win relocated to Australia to run the Holden Racing Team in its early days, resulting in the 1990 victory at Mt Panorama with Alan Grice.

HRT wishes Win every success in his fight back from this setback, from the Team and all his friends and supporters in Australia.
