The supercars driver at the center of a COVID-19 vaccination probe is Australian David Reynolds, according to motorsport.com.
The website broke the news this week that a driver was being investigated by NSW Health, amid allegations a vaccine exemption he had used to cross from Victoria to NSW was invalid.
The investigation is ongoing despite Supercars insisting that all their drivers comply with the requirements for COVID-19 vaccination.

Double vaccination or a valid medical exemption is a requirement for access to NSW from Victoria, as well as to major venues such as Sydney Motorsport Park.
“NSW Health provides advice to Supercars to ensure that all participants meet the vaccination requirements and that the events proceed in a COVID-safe manner,” a spokesman for NSW Health said in a statement to Wide World of Sports.
