Aha ! Was that where Dale Wood ran his team mate up the date crossing the top of the hill under safety car with a full-course yellow ? He then blamed radio problems as the cause !
I thought at the time he should have been instantly sacked and his cards marked never to drive a supercar again, yet it hardly raised a mention and nobody subsequently seemed at all fazed about what could have been a major shocker for all sorts of reasons.
Baffling, to me anyway.

Lots of measuring and weighing taking place by officials for nearly an hour or so, another team protesting?
Don't know about another team protesting but it's common practice for at least 1 car at random to get a very thorough checking each race meeting (on top of all the other checks done over the weekend). May well have been Mr Kelly's car on the weekend.

Very hard for them to give him any penalty when they have given C Lowndes a penalty for driving back to the pits too slow as he did not want to double stack but the officials deemed that he gained an advantage but doing so
