BTCC – Post Croft updates

Collards car (photo by Marc Waller)After a chaotic Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship weekend at Croft, can now bring you an updated account of the decisions made by stewards.

After race one, Andrew Jordan received a one second time penalty having gained an unfair advantage after he made contact with Matt Neal. Fabrizio Giovanardi was also fined £500, received three penalty points on his license and was demoted to the back of the grid after contact with Aron Smith.

Airwaves Racing appealed this decision which was later upheld. Giovanardi will take the penalty in the opening race at Snetterton in six weeks’ time.

Matt Neal was excluded from the final classification in race two after failing the ride height test in his Honda Yuasa Racing Tourer. Jason Plato also received three penalty points on his license and a ten place grid penalty after contact with Alain Menu.

An appeal from Pirtek Racing for the penalty will also be held in six weeks’ time.

Gordon Shedden received a four second time penalty after contact with Mat Jackson saw him gain an unfair advantage. Martin Depper too received a time penalty of three seconds following contact with Sam Tordoff.

Finally, Rob Collard was given a five place grid penalty which will again be taken during the first race at Snetterton after coming into contact with Jack Goff. By Nikki Thompson, photos by Marc Waller
