The Walkinshaw Andretti United Supercars team has called off the third day of its pre-Bathurst 1000 wildcard test thanks to an Alexander Rossi crash.
The 2016 Indianapolis 500 winner hit the wall on the exit of Turn 4 at Winton on the second of a planned three days of pre-Bathurst running, ahead of his and fellow IndyCar racer James Hinchcliffe's wildcard entry at Supercars' premier event.
The team has now decided to call off the third day of the test, instead opting to get the car back to its base and on the chassis jig before heading to Mount Panorama.
"We've made the call to send the car back to our Clayton workshop to be checked over before it leaves for Bathurst," said team co-principal Mathew Nilsson.
"It's better to get it back there tonight and looked at before we pack at the end of the week.
"The damaged parts are all replaceable, there was no major structural damage, and it won't have an impact on next week at Bathurst.
"While we planned to have a third day testing, this is motorsport and these things happen."
Rossi will be making his touring car racing debut at Bathurst, while Hinchcliffe was reacclimatising at the test having last driven a Supercar when he contested the 2012 Gold Coast 600 during the era of international co-drivers at the event.
"Both drivers and everyone involved took a lot out of two really solid days of running," Nilsson added.
"They adapted to the car extremely well, and they will be ready for Mount Panorama next week."
