Cam Waters has blasted Alex Premat after an extraordinary battle for the lead in the Bathurst 1000.

Waters, Premat and Chaz Mostert battled it out for the lead about 50 laps into the Great Race on Sunday, but Waters was left fuming over Premat’s tactics.

However Premat appeared to be blocking Waters and not letting him pass.

Commentators said Premat needed to watch his racing line, but Waters wasn’t as kind with his words.

After it took him three laps to finally snare the lead, Waters unleashed on his team radio.

“This is f***ing bulls**t,” Waters said. “He's just blocking.”

Shock ‘poisoning’ drama delays race start

The start of the Bathurst 1000 was dramatically delayed after a wildcard entry was forced to exit his Holden with carbon dioxide poisoning.

There was drama before the 161-lap epic enduro even began when Brodie Kostecki struggled to breath and failed to complete the formation lap just moments before the race was about start.

A driver cooling system failure in the Commodore forced Kostecki to stop at the top of Conrod Straight and he was taken to the medical centre, forcing his cousin and co-driver Jake to start.

The team received permission for another cousin Kurt Kostecki to replace him, saying Brodie was ill after breathing in fumes.

He suffered burning eyes and breathing difficulties as a result of a problem with his helmet fan, suffering carbon dioxide poisoning.

But Brodie Kostecki was later cleared to drive after he was assessed in the medical centre where he received oxygen and also underwent a concussion test.

"It was pretty scary but yeah, I'm back," Brodie Kostecki said.

The incident caused a 15-minute delay to the race start with Jake Kostecki forced to begin from pit lane after their Commodore was towed back to the garage.
