A big change of events five hours before the start of the 24 Hours of Business-Francorchamps. The K-Pax Racing Lamborghini Huracan n° 6 that took a dominant position last evening at the end of the top pole has been withdrawn by the race management! Andrea Caldarelli, who has won the pawn in the competition, therefore sees his efforts destroyed.
In question, the Italian GT’s V10 parameters did not match those used to establish the car’s Performance Scale. In addition, the air filters are not the same as those used by Lamborghini during the BoP tests, which is a violation of article 30.1 of the GT World Challenge sporting regulations.
From that moment, all times established by Lambo n ° 6 during the main pole were deleted. In addition, the trio of Caldarelli-Mapelli-Pepper will have to give up ten places on the grid. This means that they will start from the 30th position, in the middle of the peloton! Finally, the team receives a fine of €25,000.
So it is the Mercedes-AMG GT3 n°88 Akkodis-ASP of Gounon-Marciello-Juncadella that will start from pole position for the third year in a row. Alongside it, we will find the Porsche 911 GT3-R n°54 Dinamic Motorsport of Bachler-Preining-Ledogar. Dries Vanthoor and Charles Weerts will start 14th in the Audi R8 n°32 WRT.
