A post-session investigation took place, with Vaughan excluded from the results and fined $3000 (half of which is suspended). He will start Race 1 from pitlane.

As for Perkins, the remainder of his weekend will now be dedicated to his Seven Network broadcast duties.

“Unfortunately our weekend in Townsville is over early after being crashed off the track on my first flying lap of Qualifying,” the 2019 Bathurst 1000 podium finisher confirmed via social media.

“Damage to the car is too severe to fix at the circuit.

“It’s a big shame and we were quite quick at times yesterday and the car was feeling good this morning.

“Thanks for to all of my sponsors and the team for everything this weekend, time to head to Sandown.”

Perkins is set to be on double duties at Sandown, where he will co-drive with main game title contender Will Brown in the 500 as well as competing in Super2.
