A post-race penalty to Callum Hedge has elevated Max Vidau one position to claim victory in the opening Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia race in Townsville.
Vidau had followed Hedge to the line in race one, however was elevated to the win after Hedge was penalised five finishing positions for a breach of the driver briefing instructions – no breaking of traction from Turn 13 on the formation lap.
It elevates Vidau to his second career victory, backing up his maiden race win at the Australian Grand Prix earlier this year.
Hedge, meanwhile, was relegated to sixth position as a result of his penalty.
The change to the result elevates Alex Davison to second, David Wall to third, Fabian Coulthard to fourth and Jackson Walls to fifth.
The finishing positions of Race 1 are also the starting positions for Race 2, meaning Vidau and Davison will make up the front row.
Further penalties were applied to David Wall, as a result of his contact with David Russell at Turn 6.
Wall was penalised 15 championship points for his role in the incident.
David Russell’s car has been withdrawn from the event, however Simon Fallon and Bailey Hall will return to race tomorrow following overnight repairs on their Sonic and McElrea entries, respectively.
Full revised results will be issued on Sunday morning.
Race 2 commences at 8:35am on Sunday morning with live coverage on Fox Sports, Kayo and Sky Sports NZ.
