PENALTIES FOR PRIAULX AND POULSEN

Andy Priaulx will be demoted from 6th to 16th on the starting grid for tomorrow's Race 1.

The former WTCC champion was handed a 10-position grid penalty by the Stewards following an engine change on his BMW Team RBM car.

Engine changes occurred also on the cars of Monteiro, Michelisz, Nykjær, Barth and Hernandez. None of these drivers was penalised having used the engine for a minimum of four consecutive races.

Kristian Poulsen had all his qualifying times disallowed by Stewards because of a parc ferme infringement at the end of Q1.

The Dane and his BMW had posted the 15th fastest lap overall and third of the Independents' class, but they will be demoted to the last spot of the grid for tomorrow's Race 1.
