The #76 R-Motorsport Aston Martin that took pole position for today’s Blancpain GT Series race at Silverstone has been disqualified for a breach of the sporting regulations.
Following the session, the car’s data-logger was found to have no data present.
This is a breach of Article 89 of the Blancpain GT Series sporting regulations, which states that the data-logger must work at all times during competition.
However, the team has lodged notice of their intention to appeal so the car will start from pole. The race result will therefore remain provisional until the appeal is heard.
