Days of Thunder - Speak and Hodgson excluded as Deuce Racing RML lodge protest

The provisional result of the Days of Thunder race held at Rockingham on Sunday 8th June was changed after Deuce Racing RML lodged a protest against the top two cars, Rob Speak in the number 5 Learn Direct car and Stevie Hodgson in the number 6 Acorn Racing with Xcel Motorsport.

Deuce Racing RML protested against the fact that the top two cars didn't race with rear axle cooling pumps required in the technical regulations. The BARC officials upheld the protest, promoting Ben Collins to the top spot of the podium with Ian McKellar Jnr and Alejandro Lince in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Team West-Tec (Rob Speak) and Xcel Motorsport (Stevie Hodgson) have lodged an appeal with the MSA so the results for Round 3 of this year's championship will remain provisional.
