Federation Internationale De L'Automobile: Doping Sanction 2006 FIA GT Championship

Luca Moro, a driver in the 2006 FIA GT Championship, has been suspended after testing positive in a routine doping test carried out by the FIA.

The decision was made by the Stewards of the 2006 Proximus 24 Hours of Spa event on the basis of an adverse analytical finding of Benzoylecgonine (metabolite of Cocaine) in the urine sample B, which confirms the result of Sample A, both collected from Mr Moro at the Spa event on July 27, 2006.

Following a Stewards hearing it has been decided to impose on Mr Moro a two-year suspension of licence with application from August 31, 2006.

Cocaine is included in the 2006 list of prohibited substances published by the World Anti- Doping Authority (WADA).

Mr Moro has been reminded of his right of appeal.
