Onboard vision released by the Supercars judiciary has shown Garth Tander’s view of his heart-stopping near-miss with rookie Alex Rullo at Hidden Valley.

Rullo was fined $10,000 – half of which is suspended until the end of the year – and excluded from the Sunday qualifying session after swerving into Tander's path as the teenager exited the pitlane.

As confirmed by the judicial data, Tander had been travelling at over 250km/h when he came across Rullo entering the circuit at as little as 80km/h.

Accepting full blame for the situation, the 17-year-old later explained that he simply failed to double-check his mirrors before moving onto the racing line.

Team owner Lucas Dumbrell said the team also had to shoulder responsibility as it had not informed Rullo that Tander was approaching.
