FRIDAY 7 NOVEMBER
An inquiry was held into an alleged breach of Rules, in that Lansvale Smash Repair Team (car #3) failed to use an incompressible jack stand whilst a crew member was underneath the car. Due to conflicting evidence, a breach of rules could not be established.

SATURDAY 8 NOVEMBER
Following the non-participation of car #75, Anthony Tratt, in the qualifying session, it was determined that car #75 would start Race 1 from the rear of the grid.

Car #10, Mark Larkham, was found to be in breach of Rules in that car #10 failed to undertake a compulsory pit stop during Race 1. Breach was proved by admission and a penalty of car #10 to start from the rear of the grid in Race 2 was imposed.

An inquiry was held into an alleged breach of Rules, that car #17, Steven Johnson, passed car #5, Glenn Seton, under yellow flags during Race 1. The pass was established as a redress of position during a safety car period and the allegation was dismissed.

SUNDAY 9 NOVEMBER
Car #50, Jason Bright, was found to be in breach of Rules, exceeding the pit lane speed limit during the warm-up. A fine of $300 was imposed.

An inquiry was held into an alleged breach of Rules, in that car #4, Marcos Ambrose, passed car #8, Paul Dumbrell, under yellow flags during Race 1. The evidence presented showed that the pass occurred prior to the yellow flag at Flag Point 2 and did not support a breach of the Rules.

An inquiry was held into an incident whereby car #21, Brad Jones, failed to respond to a mechanical black flag signal during Race 3 until the car had completed a total of four laps after initial display. A breach of the Rules was established, however given the number of positions lost by car #21 when the car duly responded to the flag signal, no further penalty was imposed.

An inquiry was held following receipt of a Request for Incident Review from car #3, Cameron McConville, alleging contact between car #3 and car #29, Paul Morris, during Race 3. Evidence supported a breach of careless driving Rule by Paul Morris. A penalty of an official reprimand was imposed.

Car #9, Russell Ingall, was found to be in breach of Rules, following an inquiry held after receipt of a Request for Incident Review from car #17, Steven Johnson. The incident involving car #17 and car #9 was reviewed and the evidence supported a breach of careless driving Rule by Russell Ingall. A penalty of a deduction of 20 Championship Points from Russell Ingall's accumulated total was imposed.
