McLaren pairing of Nathan Morcom and Grant Denyer have been stripped of their third place finish at yesterday's Hampton Downs 101 after they were handed a post-race penalty for a final lap incident.

The Australian GT Endurance Championship leaders were issued with a 30 second time penalty that drops them to fifth after Morcom turned around the Ferrari of Graham Smythe on the final lap.

The Audi of Garth Tander and Daniel Bilski are promoted to third with Liam Talbot and Jake Fouracre's Audi moving up to fourth.

David Russell and Roger Lago won the race in their Lamborghini with the Porsche of John Martin and Duvashen Padayachee second.

The final round of the championship is at Highlands Motorsport Park in a fortnight.
