RealTime Racing Waives Right To Protest, Road America SPEED Touring Car Results Final

TOPEKA, Kan. (Aug. 24, 2004) -- Results from Sunday's SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge Touring Car Round Eight race have gone final, with no changes from the revised provisional that named Peter Cunningham the race winner.

RealTime Racing, which expressed its intent to protest the decision of the Chief Steward to disqualify its initial race-winning entry for Pierre Kleinubing, waived its right to the protest and has accepted the disqualification.

In a release put out by RealTime Racing, the team stated: "The onus for proper configuration rests with each competitor, and when it comes to the pieces in question, we made a significant but unintentional error."

The cylinder head and intake manifold from Kleinubing's Acura TSX was found to have modifications not specifically permitted by the car's Vehicle Technical Specifications (VTS).

"RealTime Racing has accepted the penalty," SCCA Vice President and General Manager Mitch Wright said. "We have talked with the team, and accept that they did not purposely try to break the rules. They made an error in understanding the rules for this model. Regardless, the parts were not to the specifications set, and are therefore not legal."
