Motorsport Australia to investigate Trans Am Race 2

Motorsport Australia has confirmed it will set up an investigatory tribunal to consider the circumstances surrounding the finish of the National Trans Am Series second race at the Shannons SpeedSeries as part of the AWC Race Tasmania event.

The category’s race was cut short due to an incident on the main straight, with the race officially finishing under safety car.

However, since the result was made official, evidence has been presented indicating that red flags were shown at multiple flag points erroneously and seen by a number of drivers.

The tribunal will now look into why the red flags were shown and if the race should have been declared earlier.

Motorsport Australia will advise of the outcome of the tribunal in due course.
