David Pittard has been stripped of his race two win in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge at Silverstone after the SV21 driver checked his own tyre pressures in Parc Ferme following the race.

The decision sees him give up the race win, which would have been his second of the weekend as well as the championship lead which the points would have given him. He had led from lights to flag, winning on track by over four seconds.

Will Burns is promoted to the race winner after he won the battle between he, Oli BaseyFisher, Clive Richards and Brad Bailey. Officially he won the race by 0.192 seconds over Basey-Fisher with Richards promoted to the podium.

As well as losing the points for the victory Pittard will also have to start the third and final race of the weekend from the rear of the field as the race two results set the grid for the finale.
