Following a review of the Broadcast footage from a number of angles and of Supercars data that had not been available to the DRD during the Race, the DRD observed that the rear wheels of Car #97 did not complete in excess of a full revolution. Consistent with previous determinations of the DRD when investigation if a breach of Rule D11.8.8 has occurred, the rear wheels must complete in excess of one full revolution for the imposition of a Penalty to be recommended to the Stewards.

When imposing that Penalty the Stewards announced their intention to further investigate the Incident post-Race.
