Dunlop driver suspended 18 months following Sydney altercation - video

Tempers flared and one driver crossed a line following the season finale.

In the 2014 season finale for Australia's Dunlop Series in Sydney, tempers overflowed in a post-race altercation. Brett Stewart will not be allowed to compete in either the Dunlop or V8 Supercar championships for 18 months in a punishment handed down by the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS). He has also been fined $15,000.

Incident

Following the race in Sydney, Stewart rammed Josh Kean's Holden back in the pits and then got into a physical confrontation with two officials. The following is a clip of Stewart ramming his fellow competitor.

Statement

“At an independent CAMS Disciplinary Tribunal hearing, Stewart was found guilty of two charges in relation to an incident following the final round of the Dunlop Series at Sydney Olympic Park held 5-7 December, 2014,” read a CAMS statement.

“The charges relate to CAMS National Competition Rules (NCR) 183: (ix) any action which causes or is reasonably likely to cause damage to other persons or property and (xii) any act prejudicial to the interests of motor sport generally.”
