Team Dynamik faces charges

South Australian-based Team Dynamik faces some of the most serious charges in the history of the V8 Supercar Championship Series with 10 separate breaches presented to stewards by the Touring Car Entrants Group Australia (TEGA) and AVESCO today.

TEGA Chairman Kelvin O'Reilly has lodged his report into the string of breaches which are alleged to have taken place at a remote airstrip in South Australia on Friday August 20 and Saturday August 21.

The team has been charged with numerous counts under the categories of alleged illegal testing, tyre regulations and using more than the specified numbers and types of sensors permitted.

"TEGA alleges that these breaches were not inadvertent but were intentional, and designed to gain a competitive advantage," O'Reilly said in his official report.

"Team Dynamik will be required to answer allegations that it knowingly and wilfully and with intent to gain a competitive advantage and to gain additional data derived from testing activities without the utilisation of the allocated quota of its test days, breached the following Rules:

Testing Rules: D1.2, D 1.1.3.1, D1.3.1, D1.4.1, D1.9, D1.10;
Tyre Rules: C13.1.3, C13.10.2;
Technical Compliance Rule: C3.1;
Electronic Data Rule: C14.11.2"

The report also included that Team Dynamik:

* Drove more than six hours north of Adelaide to a remote location to conduct a testing activity

* Disguised their transporter by placing white vinyl over identifying team and sponsor marks

* Removed all external identifying marks on the car

* Installed an extensive range of illegal sensors.

TEGA and AVESCO will supply the inquiry with eye witness accounts and testimony of the breach, along with analysis of the data stored in the TEGA ECU confiscated from the car and tender photographic evidence of the activities being conducted.

AVESCO rules prescribe penalties including fines up to $250,000, loss of all points won and exclusion among other things if the allegations are proved.
