KCMG and AF Corse penalised for track limits

The #47 KCMG and the #71 AF Corse teams have both been penalised for abusing track limits in qualifying in Bahrain ahead of the FIA WEC finale tomorrow.

KCMG's ORECA 05 Nissan of Nick Tandy, Matt Howson and Richard Bradley has dropped one position to third on the LMP2 grid after Tandy’s lap of 1m49.210s was cancelled. The Hong Kong entered team currently sits 16 points adrift of G-Drive's points-leading #26 squad.

The #71 AF Corse Ferrari 458 Italia of Davide Rigon and James Calado will move to the back row of the grid after Calado’s best time of 1m58.740s was also cancelled.

Calado and Rigon will join the #88 Abu-Dhabi Proton Porsche 911 RSR, which failed to set a time.

The AF Corse duo currently sit second in the LMGTE Pro drivers' title race, 20 points behind champion-elect Richard Lietz.
