Will Brown stripped of Sandown race win, Tony D’Alberto penalised ahead of TCR finale
Stewards have imposed two post-race penalities ahead the final round of the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series at Mount Panorama next month.
Audi driver and title contender Will Brown has copped a five second penalty for his hand in a Race 3 incident with Honda privateer Zac Soutar.
Brown has been handed a five second penalty, demoting him to second place in the race. Alfa Romeo driver Michael Caruso has inherited the victory.
Also in that race, TCR series leader Tony D’Alberto was handed a 10 second penalty for an incident with Hyundai driver Bailey Sweeny.
The penalty means that D’Alberto’s title lead has been narrowed from 56 points to 46 points.
The delay in confirming these penalties was due to the limited time available following the race, and the relevant officials being unavailable due to ongoing judicial matters from Race 2. Given some of the drivers involved were also competing in the recent Bathurst 1000 race meeting, it was decided to wait until the conclusion of that event to allow drivers and teams to properly consider the alleged infringements and recommended penalties.
The final round of the series will be held at Mount Panorama as part of the inaugural Supercheap Auto Bathurst International on November 11-13.
