Release Date: 11/06/2007
Team Vodafone’s Jamie Whincup has been excluded from the third race of round five of the V8 Supercar Championship Series at Eastern Creek in Sydney after it was found he was racing with the incorrect brake rotors.

The stewards of the meeting found:

An alleged breach of Rule C10.1.8, Triple Eight Race Engineering Pty Ltd Car #88, failing to have Alcon Brakes. Breach was admitted. Matter was referred to Stewards.

At the Stewards Hearing commencing at 1830hrs for an alleged breach of Rule C10.1.8 (failing to have correct rear brake rotors fitted to Car #88 in Race 3) Triple Eight Race Engineering Pty Ltd admitted the breach of Rules. After hearing submissions on penalty the Stewards imposed the penalty of Exclusion from Race 3 on Car #88.
