McLaughlin and SVG receive further time penalties after Race 17 clash

V8 Supercars

Shane van Gisbergen and Scott McLaughlin have both been handed time penalties this morning following an investigation into a controversial restart and a further review of their turn 2 clash in Race 17.

Van Gisbergen has been hit with a 33 second time penalty after an investigation showed that he breached the restart procedure.

Under Supercars rules, drivers are permitted to overlap before the control line, but not until the green flags are out.

McLaughlin meanwhile has had an 18s time penalty added to the 15s penalty he received during the race due for his contact with Van Gisbergen at turn 2.

The penalties will demote McLaughlin and Van Gisbergen to 22nd and 24th in the Race 17 result respectively.

Unseen angles of the incident will be shown during today’s telecast on Fox Sports 506 at 10.45 AEST ahead of ARMOR ALL qualifying.

A stewards report explaining the penalties is expected to follow shortly.
