Triple Eight Commodores disqualified from Super2 Race 2
Both of Triple Eight Race Engineering’s Commodores have been disqualified from Saturday’s Race 2 of the Dunlop Super2 Series in Adelaide.
However, they have now had their results stripped from them due to a parc ferme infringement that saw the team place cooling fans on the front of the two VF Commodores pre-race.
“Following a Stewards Hearing and finding of a breach of parc ferme rules, the Stewards disqualified Car #10, Brenton Grove, and Car #55, Kurt Kostecki, from Race 2,” read the Stewards Summary.
The decision means that Kostecki is back on negative series points after wearing a 35-point penalty for reckless driving in Race 1.
He had punted Thomas Randle at the end of Wakefield Street on Lap 1 and careered into the wall at Turn 8 due to the resulting left-front damage.
Officials cleared debutant Abbie Eaton of a possible pit stop breach, and Randle for an incident at Turn 2.
Race 3 starts today at 1405 local time/1435 AEDT.
