A war of words has broken out between Ford and Holden over alleged technical breaches by HRT.
Ford officials have accused V8 officials of double standards after Holden was called to explain an irregularity in Todd Kelly's car at the Surfers Paradise round.
A similar breach from Ford driver and likely series champion Marcos Ambrose in July resulted in a public furore in the immediate aftermath and Ford motorsport manager Stephen Kruk told AAP that it appeared Holden had escaped the same scrutiny.
"We need to understand why the system hasn't dealt with these two issues equally," Kruk said. "Not only has Holden got nearly three weeks to work on their defence, they've got away without any public scrutiny and without any damage to the brand in the way that Ford and Stone Brothers Racing were attacked."
"We had people from Holden like Mark Skaife and Larry Perkins (Castrol Perkins Racing team owner) accusing us of cheating. And what we're equally concerned about is who was able to create an environment of silence for 18 days in this case?"
