Red Bull Racing Australia has been granted a 24-hour extension to lodge evidence to support its appeal into the result of the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

Red Bull has confirmed to Speedcafe.com that the original deadline of 1755pm (DST) today has been extended by 24 hours at the request of the team.

The Brisbane squad stumped up a $10,000 fee to appeal following a controversial end to The Great Race.

Jamie Whincup was the first car to cross the finish line in the #88 Holden he shared with Paul Dumbrell, however he was hit with a 15s penalty for late-race contact with Scott McLaughlin.

The team’s evidence is expected to include videos previously shown to drivers by Supercars Driving Standards Officer Jason Bargwanna explaining incidents and their associated penalties.

Red Bull’s case centres around the argument that a points deduction, rather than a time penalty, is the correct punishment for incidents such that between Whincup and McLaughlin.

The CAMS Court of Appeal will, under normal circumstances, hold the hearing within nine days of event however it can hold any result for a further 14 days.

If that is the case then the outcome may not be known until November 2.
