Saturday hearing for alleged Penske Bathurst breach

The hearing into DJR Team Penske's alleged breach of Supercars team orders rules will take place tomorrow.

The Bathurst 1000-winning squad is under fire for an instruction issued to Fabian Coulthard to slow behind the safety car, which other teams argue allowed Scott McLaughlin being able to pit without losing position.

At the time the team explained it on TV as a precaution for an overheating issue, while it was communicated to Coulthard as debris on the circuit.

Even if the team is found guilty, it's not expected to impact McLaughlin's race win.

A monetary fine and/or loss of teams' championship points are the likeliest sanctions if required.
