Bathurst safety car probe result imminent

Officials investigating Supercars driver Fabian Coulthard's controversial Bathurst 1000 safety car tactics will release their decision this weekend.

The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) said a hearing would be held on Saturday.

It will release the outcome on Sunday, seven days after reigning Supercars champion - and Coulthard's Ford teammate - Scott McLaughlin won Bathurst with co-driver Alex Premat.

Coulthard was initially slapped with a drive-through penalty after he dramatically slowed down and held up the field behind McLaughlin, who went on to claim his maiden Great Race.

But Coulthard, who is third in the series standings after placing sixth, faces a fine or loss of championship points after stewards had ordered his DJR Team Penske outfit to face a hearing on the Gold Coast.
