Triple Eight Racing have put Grove Racing on notice they are intending to take legal action against Penrite Racing Team Principal, David Cauchi. Grove Racing release this statement on Friday 4th March 2022.
“Grove Racing has been made aware of Triple Eight’s intention to take legal action against Penrite Racing Team Principal, David Cauchi.
While disappointed with the intention to take legal action, no legitimate case has been outlined against him. The team will provide any support required to Cauchi in this personal matter.
Cauchi served his full notice period with Triple Eight until January 6, 2022, and joined Penrite Racing, in a completely different role, after that time.
Penrite Racing remains committed to its on-track performance at Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend.
Grove Racing Team Owner, Stephen Grove, said: “For a team that’s enjoyed so much success for so long it’s rather interesting timing to be focussing on taking this action on the first day of the season. We’ve done everything above board in acquiring David (Cauchi).”
“We’re focused on continuing to build our team and doing our fighting on the track, with David as a valued member of our squad. There’s bigger issues for people to worry about in the world right now, than an attempt by Triple Eight to try to stop a man from earning an income for him and his family for six months.”
Grove Racing have stated there will be no further comment at this stage from the team and its staff.
