Amended Grid: Matt Neal lap time reinstated in Final Classification
Halfords Yuasa Racing driver Matt Neal has had his fastest lap time set during qualifying for Round 16 of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Snetterton reinstated.
Neal’s Honda Civic Type R had been adjudged to have failed a ride height test during the session, but this has subsequently been overturned during a post-qualifying appeal to the Stewards by the team.
The appeal was based on the fact that a non-official was assisting with the weighing/ride height checking process. The rules state that only registered scrutineers and officials may enter the weighing area.
Due to this oversight the decision has been taken to reinstate Neal’s previously removed lap time, which has subsequently promoted him back to fourth place on the grid for tomorrow’s opening race.
