Holdsworth spoke to Riana Crehan for Inside Supercars about his injuries.
“I’m on the road to recovery now and looking forward to getting back in the car already,” Holdsworth said.
“It’s just a hairline fracture and quite a complex one actually, they say – but nothing’s displaced so hopefully just taking a bit of load off it for a while will mend itself.
“I have to say I’m pretty overwhelmed with all the messages of support, so thanks to everyone for that.”
Fortunately Holdsworth had the support of his parents, as his father Glen was racing in Commodore Cup at Hidden Valley.
“It has been good to have them up here by my side and keep me company … they’ve been great,” he said.
The car will be stripped at Paul Morris’s shop and repaired at PACE Innovations in Yatala, Queensland.
The team has plans in place to send crew members to Queensland as required, with team manager Jeff Grech, crew chief Andy Atkins and number one and two mechanics Janelle Navarro and Scott Stacey heading up tomorrow.
Holdsworth will miss the next event in Townsville, with Schwerkolt confirming Karl Reindler as his replacement.
Schwerkolt is appreciative of the incredible support he has received in the past few days.
