It has now been 5 plus weeks since Mark Drew Top Fuel Harley pilot ended up in the “Kwinana Beach” [sand trap at Perth Motorplex] after a 357klm run. I caught up with Mark to see how his recovery progress is going.

How are your injuries mending and what rehab are you going through?
Slowly healing with walking, shoulder therapy and will soon be in the pool as advised by my Physio”

I saw a parachute on the floor of your workshop was that for show or do you plan to use it when chasing low numbers?
” The parachute came with the Harley and Torin my boy issued instructions to fit it to the bike or he wont be attending any meets with me. So yes it is going on the bike.”

Hows the progress of the Harley repairs?
“The Bike is not to bad, motor and management system upgrade parts leaving USA before Christmas”

When would it be realistic to see you back on the Harley at the Perth Motorplex?
“Aiming for the 16th February all going well.”
