Best, Tickford fined for Bathurst golf buggy breach

ZAK Best and Tickford Racing have each been fined $3,000 following an unusual rule breach at the Repco Bathurst 1000.

The driver and team have been sanctioned after an unregistered golf buggy was observed being driven at “excessive speed” during track walk activities on Wednesday.

A Motorsport Australia stewards summary below detailed the incident.

“After a RD investigation into reports that during the Track Walk activity an unregistered golf buggy was observed to being driven on the Circuit (a public road) at an excessive speed and the occupants were not wearing any restraint device, and following admissions by Zak Best and Tickford Racing of a breach of Rule B6.5.6.1 – A person must not perform any act or make any omission which is negligent and causes, or is reasonably likely to cause, any personal injury or damage to property – the Stewards imposed a fine of $3,000 on each of Zak Best and Tickford Racing Pty Ltd, $2,000 of which was suspended until 31 December 2022 subject to no further breach of a similar nature during this period.”

Tickford Racing has elected not to comment on the matter.

Teams were permitted to undertake track walks between midday and 5pm on Wednesday, although not all did amid persistent rain at Mount Panorama.

Best is on double duties at Bathurst, co-driving Thomas Randle’s Castrol Mustang in the Great Race and continuing his regular Super2 program in a Tickford Falcon.
