Brad Vaughan has been hit with a spate of penalties over his qualifying clash with Jack Perkins.

Vaughan veered into the path of Perkins late in ARMOR ALL Qualifying on Saturday at the NTI Townsville 500.

Perkins was forced into the outside wall concrete approaching Turn 7, with Vaughan spinning to the infield.

The former was unable to set a representative time, and was 25th and last.

Perkins was later ruled out for the remainder of the weekend due to chassis damage.


Vaughan, meanwhile, was 13th at the time of the incident.

The Tickford Racing rookie has since been disqualified from qualifying, and will start Race 1 from pit lane.

He has also been hit with a $3000 fine, $1500 of which has been suspended.

The 40-minute Race 1 will commence at 1:15pm AEST.
