Coulthard team influenced Bathurst: Tander

As the maligned Fabian Coulthard's Ford team sweats on their fate, Supercars great Garth Tander is adamant their safety car controversy influenced the Bathurst 1000's result and wants officials to throw the book at them.

Coulthard's outfit faces a possible fine or loss of championship points after stewards ordered his DJR Team Penske team to face a hearing on Saturday following their "disgraceful" safety car tactics in last weekend's classic enduro.

Officials sensationally charged his Ford outfit with breaching team orders regulations after Coulthard dramatically slowed down and held up the field behind his Ford teammate Scott McLaughlin, who went on to claim his maiden Great Race last Sunday.
