Larbre denied maiden LMGTE Am pole

Larbre Compeition have been denied its first LMGTE Am pole position in the FIA WEC after its Chevrolet Corvette C7 failed post-qualifying technical checks.

The lap times of the #50 Larbre Competition Corvette were cancelled due to non-conformity of the car's fuel cell ventilation valve.

The car must now re-pass through scrutineering and, if it is found to conform, it will be able to start the race from the back of the grid.

This promotes the LMGTE Am SMP Racing Ferrari 458 Italia of Andrea Bertolini, Victor Shaytar and Aleksey Basov to pole position and thus increases their championship lead to 36 points.
