Supercars adds F1-style Right of Review rules

THE Formula 1-style Right of Review rules have been added into Supercars regulations ahead of the 2024 season.

The Right of Review matter has popped up in the further supplementary regulations document for next weekend’s Thrifty Bathurst 500.

It will subsequently slot into the updated 2024 Supercars Operations Manual as the new Rule B5.1, in accordance with Article 14 of the International Sporting Code.

Per B5.1.1: “Under the ISC, if a significant and relevant new element is discovered which was unavailable to the parties seeking the review at the time of the decision concerned, the stewards who have given a ruling or, failing this, those designated by the FIA, may decide to re-examine their decision following a petition for review by:

  1. either one of the parties concerned and/or a party that is directly affected by the decision handed down, or
  2. the FIA.”

Rule B5.1.2 clarifies that a petition for review must be made in writing, specifying the relevant elements, and be accompanied by a deposit of $4000 plus GST.

Rule B5.1 had previously related to Right of Appeal – that remains an option, but is now renamed as B5.2.

Appeals in motorsport have tended to be a tricky matter, with few cases in recent years being overturned.

One notable exception was Garry Rogers Motorsport managing to successfully appeal the disqualifications of James Moffat and Lochie Dalton the 2023 Winton Trans Am round.

That reversal came despite an independent appeal tribunal finding that the original determination had been correct, but reflected a belated change in the evidence at hand.
