Red Bull Racing Australia tonight learned that the appeal against the 15-second time penalty for a driving infringement handed to Car 88 at the 2016 Bathurst 1000 cannot be heard by the National Court of Appeal due to a technicality.
As a result of Rule B5.1.1 in the Supercars Operations Manual, the appeal made by the Team against the penalty imposed on Car 88 cannot be presented and the Notice of Intention to Appeal should not have been accepted by the Stewards.
We respect the authority of the Court and wish to thank all those who have supported us during this process, particularly our fans, our Team Partners and the respected industry members in the Sport who independently voiced their opinions that Jamie raced hard and fair and nothing more. With just three events remaining this year, the Team is focused on delivering our partners and fans the best possible results for a strong finish to the 2016 season.
