The list post-qualifying offences from the 6 Hours of Nurburgring has grown as the paddock has woken up this morning. New LMP2 pole sitter Jackie Chan DC Racing #38 and the LM GTE Pro pole car Porsche GT Team #92 both failed a section of scrutineering. The two teams will undergo a second scrutineering this morning to establish if they are allowed to remain on class pole.

Both teams have been reprimanded for the same technical breach: that disconnecting the transmission after the qualifying session was not possible. The ORECA-07 and the Porsche 911 RSR will be brought back to Parc Ferme at 10:00 CEST for a second scrutineering.

Currently, both teams are being allowed to participate in the race from the positions they qualified in. However, they are both subject to the outcome of the second scrutineering. It can be assumed that if the teams fail scrutineering again for the same reason they will be stripped of their pole positions.

The #38 car has already inherited their first pole position of the season when #26 G-Drive Racing failed scrutineering and were stripped of their fourth consecutive pole position.

Oliver Webb also got pulled to the stewards after qualifying as he failed to complete the minimum time in the car than he needed to. The stewards reprimanded the team but have allowed Webb to take part in the race as usual.

Stay tuned to TheCheckeredFlag for updates on any order changes before lights out at 13:00 CEST.
