Triple Eight Racing withdraws appeal
Statement from Triple Eight Racing
Triple Eight Racing has today withdrawn its appeal against the exclusion of car #66, Josh Cook, on technical grounds from race one at Silverstone.
The team acknowledges that following race one at Silverstone the rear wing on the #66 car was found by TOCA, using their measuring procedures, to be mounted outside the permitted tolerances, a fact that the team accepts.
At no time did the team attempt to gain an advantage by intentionally positioning the wing outside of the allowed position, and TOCA acknowledge that it was an oversight by the team.
After closely examining both current and historical evidence, the team has decided to look forwards. The technical issues involved in the matter are minutely detailed and involve historical data and production tolerances in several components.
The team therefore accepts the penalty issued at the time and will not be making any further statement regarding this issue.
