Stewards confirm Sandown penalties
Stewards have confirmed a series of penalties following the Wilson Security Sandown 500.
Officials have handed a five second post-race penalty to the #12 Shell V-Power Racing Ford of Fabian Coulthard and Tony D’Alberto.
Coulthard nudged the rear of the #75 Brad Jones Racing entry driven by Ash Walsh at Turn 9 while the pair were disputing fourth position on lap 68.
The penalty fails to alter Coulthard and D’Alberto’s finishing position of fifth.
Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport has been issued a $5,000 fine and docked 30 championship points after the right rear wheel came loose on the #62 Alex Rullo/Alex Davison entry.
The #56 Prodrive Ford, driven by Jason Bright and Garry Jacobson, has dropped from 17th to 19th position following a 26 second post race penalty for failing to adhere to the black flag.
Bright and Jacobson had already received a pit lane penalty for spinning wheels during a pit stop.
Meanwhile, an incident that saw Karl Reindler (#18 Preston Erection) and Macauley Jones (#8 Brad Jones Racing) collide in pit lane during the Sunday morning warm-up warranted no further action.
