BELGIAN COURT WITHDRAWS THE SEIZURE OF SCUDERIA COLONI GP2 CARS

Passing judgement on 2 September 2009, the Belgian Court of Verviers withdrew the seizure of the truck and the GP2 cars, which are the property of Coloni Motorsport, declaring void any previous ruling and declaring as illegitimate the seizure that was enacted at the insistence of Andy Soucek and his lawyers on Friday 28 August 2009 at the Spa Francorchamps circuit in Belgium. The seizure was obtained by omitting information and legal papers, which would have shown that the request was made with absolutely no grounds.

It must be noted that Soucek's lawyers asked the court for a writ in order to be allowed to seize the cars on just minutes before the start of the GP2 Series free practice session at Spa. This was done to ensure that, with not enough time to react, Scuderia Coloni was forced to skip the Belgian event, and bear all the related damages.

Scuderia Coloni and Coloni Motorsport reserve themselves the right to act for their own protection in every appropriate court, in the civil, penal and sporting field.
