Todd Kelly and Tony D’Alberto lose grid spots
Todd Kelly and Tony D’Alberto will lose three grid places as a result of infringements in the final practice session at Symmons Plains Raceway today.
Kelly and D’Alberto were deemed to have failed to slow down sufficiently when the yellow flags were displayed.
The penalty will take effect for tomorrow’s Race 23 of the V8 Supercars Championship.
Late in the session, Craig Lowndes was extracting his TeamVodafone Commodore from the sand trap at the hairpin when D’Alberto and Kelly arrived on the scene. D’Alberto ended the session in the sand, while Kelly went off the road but was able to get back to pit lane.
Both Kelly and D’Alberto accepted the stewards decision.
