Supreme Court rejects Team Dynamik application

The Supreme Court of Victoria has rejected Team Dynamik's application for an injunction to delay Thursday's Stewards' inquiry into the alleged breach of regulations relating to V8 Supercar testing. The Supreme Court ruled that the matter must be dealt with under the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport's (CAMS) judicial system and also ordered that Team Dynamik pay CAMS' costs

Supreme Court rejects Team Dynamik application

The team is to answer allegations of multiple breaches of testing regulations [Sep 1] set out in the AVESCO operations manual following a report by Touring Car Entrants Group Australia (TEGA) chairman Kevin O'Reilly.

Supreme Court Judge Mr Philip Cummins rejected the injunction application on the basis that the parties have voluntarily agreed to a judicial system which is designed to ensure legal technicalities are minimsed, and it is premature for the court to intervene, particularly when the proceedings had not even started. It was also decided that the material involved in the case was a matter for the experts in the area, being the Stewards appointed to conduct the inquiry.

CAMS president Colin Osbourne commented: "CAMS is pleased that the Supreme Court of Victoria has reinforced the sport's authority over its own judicial system, and confirmed that all avenues of the CAMS judicial system must be exhausted prior to any party being able to seek the transfer of any matter to the civil law jurisdiction."

The hearing has been adjourned and will reconvene on Saturday September 11.
