#50 Corvette excluded from 6 Hours of Silverstone
Following scrutineering, Larbre Competition's #50 Corvette has been excluded from the result of yesterday's FIA World Endurance Championship round at Silverstone after being initially classified second.
The GTE Am result has been modified accordingly due to the non-conformity of a safety device, namely the validity date of the car's fire extinguisher.
Jack Leconte, Team Manager: "The problem arises from the team installing the wrong fire extinguisher during the car's preparation prior to the race. Larbre Competition accepts the stewards' decision and will work hard to modify its assembly procedures during the installation of safety equipment. I am convinced that strengthening these already stringent checks can only improve the team's performance over the second half of this year's World Endurance Championship."
