Stone Brothers Racing co-owner Ross Stone says he is relieved after the V8 Supercar Court of Appeal reinstated Marcos Ambrose as the leader of the championship.

Ambrose was docked 192 points following the weekends Queensland 300 when a wire was found connected to the ECU on his Ford Falcon.

However, the appeal court has now decided to return the points and halve the $10,000 fine imposed on the team, a decision Stone felt was fair.

"This is obviously a very pleasing result for us," he said. At the end of the day the system has not let us down and that is important. I thought it was very fair tonight and handled very professionally.

"It was important for our team to maintain its integrity and this decision allows us to do that. We just want to put this behind us now and get on with winning another championship.

"We were hopeful of success because of the work we had done on our case, but you just never know. So many members of our team worked on getting our submission together and I have to thank our Technical Director Ken Douglas for his tireless efforts and his presentation to the panel tonight."

Ambrose was understandably relieved to reclaim his lead in the standings as he aims to retain the V8 Supercar Championship.

"I guess I just feel a great sense of relief," he said. "SBR are a dedicated, honest and hard-working race team that really did not deserve to be in this situation.

"Hopefully now the stress levels can return to normal and we can put our heads down for the rest of the season. It is nice to be rewarded for all the hard work last weekend and be back in the championship lead."

Stephen Kruk, operations manager for Ford Racing, was also thrilled at the outcome of the hearing in Melbourne.

"Ford is delighted with tonight's outcome," he said. "It upholds the faultless integrity of Stone Brothers Racing. Obviously it is great to have Marcos back in the lead of the championship and now we can celebrate his great victory at Queensland.

"We look forward to Stone Brothers and the rest of the Ford teams fighting for victory at Winton in a couple of week's time."
