DOUG 'Hollywood' Gore's Audi TT, which was involved in an accident at the Caribbean Motor Racing Championships (CMRC) at Dover in May, will not on the track in the July 28-29 race meet.

His fans will not see the Audi as the car is still in Germany being repaired and will not be ready in time for the meet. The car received extensive damage to the interior and exterior, as parts of the body were detached on impact, and the four-ringed wonder propelled into the fencing.

Despite the magnitude of the impact, Gore remained unhurt, apart from a few aches and pains.

"I experienced some pains as a result of the accident, nothing too major, but all is well with me now. I'm just waiting to hear what is next from Audi in Germany regarding the state of the car," he said.

"Repairs are presently being done but the car will not be back in time for the July meet, so I will not be racing at Dover before October. Spectators can look forward to seeing the Audi at the October race meet," he continued.

The Audi has been in accidents at Dover before, but none this severe, so Gore's fan will have to bide their time until October.

"I always look forward to seeing Doug race the Audi at Dover; it's a very fast car and it provides competition for Summerbell, which is good for racing. I guess we will just have to wait and see what will happen in October," said Odane Johnson, an ardent Audi fan.

Although he will be missing in action come July, Gore has promised that the Audi will return stronger, better and more powerful.

"We will be back stronger, with more power. Sorry I will not make it for July but fans can rest assured, ATL racing will be back and Unbeatable again," he predicted.
