UPDATE: BROCK GIBLIN
The recovery of Australian Manufacturers Championship competitor Brock Giblin continues to progress positively, with the seventeen year old hopeful of being able to continue his recovery at home on the Sunshine Coast from around mid-October.
Last week Giblin was moved from the Royal North Shore Hospital burns unit – where he has been receiving treatment since his July 11 practice incident at Sydney Motorsport Park – to the Graythwaite Rehabilitation Centre of Ryde Hospital.
The move comes some weeks ahead of previously forecast schedules, and sees Giblin now engaged in an intensive rehabilitation program to increase mobility, regain muscle tone, and ensure a full range of movement as his burns continue to heal.
“He is able to walk slowly and is consistently increasing his distances and concentrating on regaining muscle tone and a full range of movement,” said Colin Osborne – the team owner for Osborne Motorsport for who Giblin was competing in Sydney.
“As a young man with a competitive and outgoing spirit, Brock is in much better spirits since moving to the rehab clinic where he is being able to become more active, and his recovery is progressing well with each day that passes.
“There hasn’t been a day that Brock hasn’t had either his mother or father by his side, and I know he is greatly appreciative of the support of his family as well as the greater motorsport community during his recovery, as is everyone at Osborne Motorsport.”
The Australian Manufacturers Championship amd the Shannons Australian Motor Racing Nationals wishes Brock all the best for his continuing recovery, and thanks the greater motorsport community for their ongoing support of Brock, his family, and the Osborne Motorsport team.
