New penalties have been created for false starts in Carrera Cup

False start penalties will be changed for Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia competitors.

Effective immediately, any competitor who makes a false start in a Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia race will have a minimum of a five second penalty added to their race time after the race.

This new penalty, which comes into effect for this weekend’s round at Mount Panorama, replaces the drive-through penalty previously dealt to anyone who made a start line infringement.

Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia management requested CAMS to amend the False Start penalty because it felt the drive-through penalty was too harsh a punishment for the infringement and believed the new penalty to be more appropriate.

The new post-race penalty will now allow officials to apply a penalty that is far more appropriate for a start line infringement and not have such a devastating effect on the result of the competitor concerned.

See below for a preview of this weekend’s Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia round at Bathurst.
