Tickford Racing driver Cameron Waters may face sanction for comments made following the dramatic end to the ITM Auckland SuperSprint.
Jamie Whincup has already been issued with a ‘please explain’ from Australian governing body the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS) over his own explosive comments.
Whincup’s on-air remarks came after he elected to overtake the Safety Car early in Sunday’s Race 24, was hit with a drive-through penalty, and was consigned to 16th.

Waters — who started third — was also affected by the Safety Car deployment after he queued behind Whincup and Tickford teammate Lee Holdsworth.
Waters would end up 14th, one spot ahead of Holdsworth.
In a post-event media release, Waters suggested the ‘embarrassing’ race result should be annulled. He also repeated the comments on social media, and commented below a post on Fox Motorsport’s Facebook page, saying: “We will never know the true result”.
“I had a really good race car, was just trucking around, we would have been on for a podium, but obviously race control managed to screw that one up royally,” Waters said.
“It’s an embarrassment that a championship can do that and classify it as full points.
“So as far as I’m concerned I want an explanation from the powers that be, and I think that race should be zero points.”
It prompted CAMS to issue a letter to Waters to explain his comments.
Waters, like Whincup, will get a chance to explain his comments to CAMS before possible sanction is handed down.
