A final verdict is yet to be determined on the incident that saw Cameron McLeod suffer a rollover in the Perth Dunlop Series finale, with a hearing adjourned.

McLeod's Commodore was sent into a series of violent rolls late in Race 2 on Sunday after contact with Cooper Murray.

The race was suspended for a second time, with Zach Bates the victor. McLeod was reclassified in third, with Murray sixth.

Frightening rollover for McLeod ends Perth finale

"The Stewards convened a hearing following the Super2 race regarding the contact between cars 88 and 92. It was part heard and adjourned to a date to be fixed," a Motorsport Australia spokesperson confirmed.

“Results remain provisional until the hearing has concluded."

Both drivers caught up after the race, with McLeod saying: “I’m alright. A bit of a shitty end to the weekend, but if we can push on from this pretty scary incident... we were flying through the air for a little bit.

“I chatted to Cooper, we’re all good, no bad blood between us."

In the press conference, Murray said: "Obviously it’s unfortunate, you never want to see a car that wrecked.

"Coming out of turn six I had overlap on Cameron, so going down the straight he started to squeeze me more and more to the right side of the track while I had the overlap.

“Then it got to a certain point where I couldn’t turn any more right and he kept turning. I’m a racer at heart, I’m not going to back out, and if I turn him then that’s what happens.

“I hope he’s ok, I saw that it was a really big crash when I was watching the replays, so my best wishes to him.”
