Race 2 of Round 7 of the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series has been cancelled amid poor weather conditions at Bathurst.
The field headed off under Safety Car for Lap 1 of the contest at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst International, but they did not make it back to the control line before red flags started to wave.
Either or both of rain and poor visibility may have contributed to the suspension, although the recovery crew also removed a tortoise from Mountain Straight early in the red flag period.
Michael Caruso (Alfa Romeo) started from first position after a post-Race 1 penalty saw him relegated to 10th in that encounter, and hence getting the greatest yield from the standard grid reversal.
Race 1 winner Bailey Sweeny (Hyundai) was thus put back to 10th, while Jordan Cox (Peugeot) ended up 14th after he had a five-second penalty added to his race time for a clash with Luke King (Hyundai).
Furthermore, Cox dropped behind series leader Tony D'Alberto (Honda) in the Race 1 classification, and to third, behind Will Brown (Audi) in the points standings.
