Murphy to have another operation on his back

12:11 pm on 8 June 2012

The New Zealand V8 motor racing driver Greg Murphy has had a relapse of his recent back issues and will undergo further surgery in Melbourne next week.

This operation will be Murphy's second since his crash in qualifying at the Clipsal 500 in March and will rule him out of all racing for the next three months.

Murphy says he needs to get the vertebrae fused to sort this once and for all and while it means he'll be out of the car for the next three months, he expects to be a hundred percent by September.
