Pringle Declines World Final Seat

  2 September 2013

Rick Pringle will not be heading to New Orleans for the RMC Grand Finals. Pringle, who was one of the 12 Team Australia drivers announced at the Rotax Nationals yesterday, confirmed to IKD today that he will not be able to take up the invite.

"Unfortunately, due to the fact that Jason and I have both qualified, it will put too much pressure on our family business to have Dad, myself and Mum away for the event so one of us will have to stay home" Pringle has informed with IKD.

"I want to thank everyone at IKD for another fantastic year of racing in the Pro Tour, it is easily the best series in the country and I hope it continues to grow."

As a result of Pringle's difficult decision, Brendan Nelson was offered, and has accepted, a seat in the DD2 category.
