Polesitter's Qualifying Time Disallowed Following Technical Inspection

ALTON, Va. (October 4, 2003) -- Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series officials announced that the lap time recorded by Didier Theys in the Doran-Lista Racing No. 27 Toyota Doran JE4 during qualifying for the VIR 400 at Virginia International Raceway has been disqualified due to a technical infraction.

During the post-qualifying technical inspection, the wicker length on the wing of the No. 27 Daytona Prototype was found to be greater than allowed in the 2003 Grand American Rulebook.

The No. 27 Toyota will be moved to the rear of the Rolex Series grid for the start of Sunday's VIR 400. Andy Pilgrim will start the Bell Motorsports No. 54 Chevy Doran JE4 Daytona Prototype in the pole position with the points-leading No. 58 Red Bull Porsche FABCAR of Brumos Racing on the outside.
