Official Team Statement – Newcastle 500

Triple Eight is disappointed in the decision handed down by Motorsport Australia resulting in the disqualification of both Red Bull Ampol Racing cars from Race 1 of the Newcastle 500, and we have lodged notices of our intention to appeal for both cars.

The team sought permission from the Supercars Head of Motorsport prior to Race 1 of the Supercars Championship, which was granted, and we acted upon this permission. This was not a performance enhancement method, but a driver safety tool.

Our team ethos is to race hard and fair every time we hit the track, and our full focus is on today’s race in Newcastle.
