Young Driver AMR: Appeal date set

Friday, May 14, 2010

The appeal hearing into the disqualification of the Young Driver Aston Martin No.7 from first place at the second round of the championship at Silverstone will take place next Tuesday, 18 May, the FIA has announced.

The car, driven by Darren Turner and Tomas Enge, was excluded from the results by the race stewards because the underfloor skid plank on the flat bottom of the car was worn beyond the permitted minimum thickness.

As a result of the exclusion, and a time penalty handed out to the second car over the line - the Aston Martin of Hexis Racing's Thomas Accary and Frederic Makowiecki - the Championship Race win was awarded to the Nissan GT-R of Jamie Campbell-Walter and Warren Hughes.

The hearing of the International Court of Appeal will take place at 10.00am at the FIA headquarters at Place de la Concorde in Paris.
