The series leader in the New Zealand V8 SuperTourer series, Greg Murphy, will learn on Thursday whether he's able to compete at the second round of the competition in Christchurch this weekend.

Murphy recently had an operation to repair a a ruptured disc in his back.

The four-time Bathurst winner says even if his doctor doesn't allow him to drive he'll still attend the event.

Murphy said last week he was confident of being fit to drive in the Hamilton round of the Australasian V8 Supercar series later this month.
