Dean Fiore is one of three Super2 drivers fined after Friday running at the Coates Hire Newcastle 500, for an indiscretion during the afternoon ride session.
Fiore has been fined $5,000, of which half is suspended until the end of next year, for his driving in meeting rides after the day’s practice sessions wrapped up.
“Following a DRD Investigation and an admission of a breach by Car #23, Dean Fiore, of Rule E6.3 (speed and conduct during meeting rides), the Stewards imposed the penalty of a fine of $5,000, $2,500 of which is suspended until 31/12/2019, on Dean Fiore,” read the Stewards Summary.
Two drivers were fined for breaches of regulations in Practice 1, namely Paul Dumbrell and Adam Marjoram.
Dumbrell was fined $1,000 for entering pit lane rather than the Super2 paddock, for which the entrance is adjacent to that of pit lane, when the chequered flag was out.
Marjoram was issued a five-position grid penalty for Race 1 later today and fined $2,500 for failing to stop at pit exit when the light was red.
