Larbre Lose Fifth After Scrutineering

1 Mins read

The #50 Larbre Competition Corvette was disqualified from the results of the Six Hours of Silverstone at the weekend, after a technical infringement on the car.

The car was driven by the trio of Patrick Bornhauser, Julien Canal and Fernando Rees, was originally classified in second in the GTE-Am class. However, the results have now been amended following the non-conformity of a safety device, namely the validity date of the car’s fire extinguisher.

“The problem arises from the team installing the wrong fire extinguisher during the car’s preparation prior to the race. Larbre Competition accepts the stewards’ decision and will work hard to modify its assembly procedures during the installation of safety equipment,” Jack Leconte, the team’s manager said.

“I am convinced that strengthening these already stringent checks can only improve the team’s performance over the second half of this year’s World Endurance Championship.”
