Anton De Pasquale and Richie Stanaway have received two-place grid penalties ahead of Race 2 for the Dunlop Super2 Series at the Red Rooster Sydney SuperSprint.

The duo finished second and third respectively in the opening race before mistakenly heading to pitlane on the cool-down lap instead of returning straight to the paddock.
