What could possibly be changed by winning that protest? Is it purely about vindication?

Also, has it been confirmed wether Supercars use a radar or GPS timing loop for enforcing the pit lane limit?

Why to embarrass CAMS of course, and perhaps to make sure proper procedures are followed in future?

It is clear and irrefutable proof there was no infringement.

I can't help but feel they thought that they had done all they needed to do.
Since there never was a speeding infringement, the celebration can't have contributed to it!

Except they didn't get it wrong, see for yourself. Clearly the officials made an error when measuring the speed.

Maybe when Pecky said 'they' he meant CAMS?

we shall see, officials have their evidence, DJRTP have theirs. clearly there is some sort of mix up.

How do we know that the pics above match the data with it. They are from different sources

If it is a matter if such importance, why aren’t all teams invited to understand how the process works?

Not protesting, as the time limit for doing that is long past.

They are apparently seeking clarification though: Review

Hopefully nothing comes of this. The 2017 championship would have a huge asterisk next to it, not to mention the integrity of Supercars itself.

not radar, nor GPS but they use a timing loop at pit entry. Confirmed in article from Bairdo previously linked in this thread.

Are timing loops considered a good way of achieving the task?

the time taken to travel between two points is a definite science/mathmatical equation

however why was there also a radar guy at the track as well
