Prince Abu Bakar Ibrahim and Jamie Whincup entry withdrawn

The Triple Eight Race Engineering Mercedes-AMG GT3 to be shared by Prince Abu Bakar Ibrahim and Jamie Whincup has been withdrawn from the three-hour Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia powered by AWS event at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst International following an incident during qualifying.

Nearing the end of the first segment of qualifying, Ibrahim was at McPhillamy Park when he lost control and hit the tyre wall, which sent the Mercedes-AMG into a roll finishing on its roof.

Ibrahim extracted himself from the Mercedes and was taken to the medical centre to be assessed.

The entry was severely damaged and cannot be repaired ahead of the Fanatec GT World Australia powered by AWS race tomorrow, also the final round of the Australian Endurance Championship finale.

Schumacher Motorsport driver Brad Schumacher finished the opening session fastest in his newly upgraded Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II from the other Triple Eight Race Engineering Mercedes-AMG GT3 of Prince Jefri Ibrahim.

The next qualifying session for the Professional drivers will commence at 12pm AEDT.
