Australian star Luke Youlden has been rendered a non - starter at the third round of the Schaeffer Oil N.Z. Super Sedan Series at Pukekohe Park Raceway near Auckland this weekend
Youlden arrived at the track yesterday leading the series from Steve Cox and Grant Brennan but the Powerbuilt Tools / Bed Rumours Handcrafted Beds Ford Mustang suffered an engine problem in practice yesterday and with no spare engine available the car was withdrawn.
Youlden returned home to Melbourne this morning but will return to New Zealand next month.
The next round of the series is also at Pukekohe on 14 January.
