A remorseful James Moffat has apologised to his Wall Racing team after a disappointing end to their Carrera Cup Championship on the Gold Coast.

Moffat was excluded from competing in the final race of the season, in race 3 of the weekend on Sunday afternoon after being charged with physical abuse on fellow competitor Glen Wood.

“The way it unfolded, it was obviously less than ideal and put a real dampener on the weekend,” Moffat said.

“I’m more sorry for everyone in the team, it meant we couldn’t compete on Sunday.

“The guys and girls at Wall Racing prepared an unreal race car and for it to be sitting in the garage rather than the track on Sunday broke my heart.”

The incident that led to Moffat being benched and fined followed the opening Carrera Cup race of the weekend on Saturday morning.

After on track contact with Glen Wood, the pair clashed again afterwards in Parc ferme out of the car.

Moffat wanted to set the record straight on the incident.

“There was no punch, there was no shoving, there was nothing like what has been suggested,” Moffat said.

“I brushed past him on the way back to my car to get the tyre pressures in parc ferme.

“Am I guilty of making contact with him? Yes. But absolutely nothing was done to hurt him, I want to stress that.

“If my intention was to do something I would have confronted him straight away, I had no interest in even being near him (Wood).

“Wood then followed me to my car verbally and physically assaulting me, while I was checking the tyre pressures.”

Wood was fined $500 for verbal abuse.

Moffat was excluded from race 3 and fined $5,000 – half of which is suspended for 12 months.

In a show of faith, one of the biggest sponsors in the sport of Supercars – Boost Mobile boss Peter Adderton reached out to sponsor Moffat and pay the fine.

“After the high of winning the Gold Coast 600 on Saturday, to the low of the steward hearing on Sunday morning – it was nice to get the support from Peter and it was great to put the Boost Mobile logo on my helmet,” Moffat said.

“It’s been pleasing how many people have reached out to show their support within the paddock and it means a hell of a lot.”

It was a sour note for the 34 year old to complete his return season to Carrera Cup Australia.

He finished sixth in the 2018 title fight.

“We had poles, a race win and a round win – but results didn’t quite back up the speed of the car,” Moffat said.

“Still I thoroughly enjoyed the season with David and the entire Wall Racing team who were so welcoming to Leah, Max and l.”

“And to my sponsors who came onboard this year – SONIQ, JBL, Swann, Wilson Security and PAYCE,  there were some ups and downs but at the end of the day, that’s motorsport and I am extremely grateful for their fantastic support in 2018.”
