Following her 410 Sprintcar debut at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway earlier this month, Michaela Dumesny will temporarily step out of the NSW # 77 Maxim Sprintcar for 6 to 12 weeks to undergo surgery this week on a previous injury.

The 26-year-old from Nelson, NSW damaged her left knee playing soccer earlier in the year in which she sustained a full thickness disruption of her ACL.

“It is obviously bad timing considering our season just started,” she expressed.

“However, my complete recovery is almost a year and I’ve been limited to what I can do with the injury.”

Michaela’s surgery was recently approved after five months, so she will take some time out with hope to return before to racing before Christmas; in the meantime, Michaela’s older brother, Mitchell Dumesny, will return to racing the NSW # 77 Maxim in the not too distant future at Valvoline Raceway.
