TEAM owner Roland Dane has taken aim at Cameron McConville following a crash in Bathurst 12 Hour qualifying.
McConville, who is one of the four drivers racing the Lamborghini Huracan out of the Wall Racing stable, made contact with the Triple Eight Racing Mercedes-AMG GT driven by Sam Shahin – forcing the Merc hard into the wall at Skyline.
The Lamborghini was able to limp back to the pits with minimal damage, while the Triple Eight team faces a monumental job to make the grid for tomorrow’s 12 Hour endurance – if it is even possible.
When asked about the car following the incident, Dane was quick to show concern for driver Shahin, before putting the spotlight on McConville.
“… and then the next thing is the idiot that took him out, McConville, who should have retired five years ago, and that shows it,” Roland Dane said to Neil Crompton in an abrupt interview post crash.
Ironically, McConville is a former Driving Standards Observer for both Supercars and the Porsche Carrera Cup categories – relinquishing the roles in order to pursue driving opportunities.
With 39 entries in the Bathurst 12 Hour this year, the field boasts a driver line up of 124 drivers of various levels of experience: seasoned professionals, rising stars, rookies, and like many of the GT categories around the world, a host of gentlemen drivers.
A top 10 shootout takes place this afternoon for the PRO category, with the race commencing at 5:45am tomorrow morning. Further details can be found at www.bathurst12hour.com.au
