“At the present time, investigations at the hospital indicate that his burn injuries are the only area of concern.

“Brock is currently being readied for transfer to a specialist burns unit in Sydney.

“The car is destroyed and was engulfed in flame during the incident. While the precise cause of the accident is under investigation, it is apparent that the fire was a result of the accident, and not the cause.

“The team is working closely with CAMS to identify the cause. We are confident that the cars construction, safety devices and the drivers safety apparel did their job to restrict any further injuries to Brock.

“Brock is at hospital with his father and a number of members of the Osborne Motorsport Team.

“The team would like to acknowledge the efforts of the rescue services and crews that attended the accident scene, and would particularly like acknowledge the remarkably brave actions of fellow drivers, Ryan McLeod and Matt Cherry, attempting to provide assistance to Brock prior to, and following, the arrival of emergency crews.

“Our thoughts are with Brock and his family at this time, and we hope for a quick recovery.

“The team has not yet decided if it will continue to participate in the Australian Manufacturers Championship round this weekend.”

There will be no further comment made at this time, unless issued via the Shannons Australian Motor Racing Nationals, or Osborne Motorsport.
