The Supercars driver at the centre of a COVID-19 vaccination probe is Australian David Reynolds, according to motorsport.com.
The website broke the news this week that a driver was being investigated by NSW Health, amid allegations a vaccine exemption he had used to cross from Victoria to NSW was invalid.
The investigation is in progress despite Supercars insisting that all of its drivers are compliant with COVID-19 vaccination requirements.
Double vaccination or a valid medical exemption is a requirement of entry to NSW from Victoria, as well as to large venues such as Sydney Motorsport Park.
“NSW Health is providing advice to Supercars to ensure that all participants meet the vaccination requirements and the events proceed in a COVID-safe manner,” a NSW Health spokesperson said in a statement supplied to Wide World of Sports.
Reynolds drives for Kelly Grove Racing.
Supercars resumed racing last weekend following a break of more than three months, with the first of four consecutive race meetings taking place at Sydney Motorsport Park.
