in the coming days.
However Motorsport Australia has today advised that the case has been dropped by GRM and Herne.
“Motorsport Australia has been advised by lawyers acting for Nathan Herne and GRM that they will not continue with their appeal to the Australian Motor Sport Appeal Court (AMSAC),” Motorsport Australia CEO Eugene Arocca said.
“The decision to not award a dispensation was made purely and only on safety grounds, considering the relevant experience of the driver in question. Any suggestions otherwise are simply not true and ill informed.
"Motorsport Australia does not compromise on safety. Some of the most senior and respected motorsport people in Australia considered the matter and all came to the same decision through this process.
“Motorsport Australia considers this issue resolved and we wish Nathan all the very best with his career.”
The outcome places a significant question mark over whether the GRM Wildcard entry will go ahead, despite there being crew members already in hotel quarantine to get access to New South Wales from Victoria.
Herne was set to share the car with Tyler Everingham.
