CAMS, the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport, has confirmed that the FIA court of appeal will hear Team Dynamik's appeal against illegal testing on 24 February next year.

The team is alleged to have breached several series regulations by carrying out an illegal test at a remote airstrip north of the its base in Adelaide, and also by trying to disguise the identity of the car taking part in order to avoid detection. Dynamik claimed that it was merely running a car for a potential customer to decide whether he wanted to buy the machine and was not testing in preparation for any future event.

As the row escalated during the latter half of the season, the V8 Supercar court of appeal increased the financial penalty originally applied - and then handed down additional 'on track' penalties for both the final round of the 2004 championship at Eastern Creek and first round of the 2005 series, in which the two Dynamik cars would be forced to start a lap behind the field.

The team has since taken its case to the FIA, and will now have its appeal heard in Paris.
