Pre-session matters
Prior to the commencement of competition the Stewards received a request from Brad Jones Racing for a Change of Co-driver for Car #14 from Ash Walsh to Andre Heimgartner due to a deterioration in Ash Walsh's health overnight. The Stewards received a report from the Medical Delegate who had just examined Ash Walsh and concluded that his condition had worsened since she had examined him on 5 October and declared him fit to drive, that he was suffering considerable pain due to rib fractures sustained in a recent motorsport incident and was not now fit to compete further in the Event.
