James Golding has avoided fractures to his wrist and hand following his Gold Coast crash.

CT scans have revealed a sprain to Golding's left wrist, which will heal in time for the VALO Adelaide 500.

He was later seen in the paddock with the wrist strapped.

Golding was one of six drivers wiped out on the spot early in Sunday’s race.

The 26-year-old lost control after he hit a tyre bundle at the beach chicane.

Golding still managed to grab a fire extinguisher and arrest the situation with fellow drivers.

PremiAir Racing confirmed Tuesday that Golding had sustained no fractures.

"A CT scan on Jimmy’s wrist and hand has confirmed there is no serious damage,” the team wrote.

“It is just a bad sprain which will soon heal up nicely.

"Jimmy and the entire team would like to say thank you for all of the messages of concern and support.


“We really appreciate all of your well wishes!”

Golding’s team and teammate Chris Pither have both thrown their weight behind the driver.

In a post of his own to social media, Golding acknowledged all the kind messages of support.

"Firstly, I want to thank everyone for all the kind messages of support in the last 24 hours,” he said.

"Luckily, everyone walked away from the incident without serious injury.

"I am sorry to all the drivers and teams that were involved as innocent bystanders.

"It was simply human error, and I 100% own up to making the mistake.

"All I can do is learn, overcome, and do a better job next time.

"I can't thank my family, friends, supporters, and the whole PremiAir team enough for all their support."

The 2022 Repco Supercars Championship will conclude on the Adelaide streets in December.
