    Default CAMS Report of hearing post Bathurst 2019

    For those that watched this and wondered how it would pan out at the stewards hearing, which was held yesterday (Sat 19/10), CAMS have published the result:

    Seems a fair outcome, for what amounts to bending the rules too far, and so affecting other competitors results, though not changing the ultimate outcome of the winner of the race.

    Maybe they will make some change to the safety car rule following this.

    Except for that controversy, it was a pretty good race, for us motorsport enthusiasts.

    Actually CAMS officials at the track were at fault. They should have seem what was happening, under the guise of an "overheating car" and should have told the next car to overtake as #12 was in trouble. And if #12 then sped up should have been black flagged. That is what would have happened in any FIA touring car or GT race in Europe. CAMS at the track were slow.....

    Tough call, Ray, to blame officials to analyse what was happening within about 40 seconds, when it's taken a week of back and forth of various scenarios to come to a conclusion.
    Personally, I hold it as one of those incidents that occur when a team "bends" a rule as a strategy, but takes it too far and make themselves look foolish. It probably took a few days just to find a rule that had actually been broken.
    Safety cars cause problems.

    Cheers
    Chris.
