Nasser Al-Attiyah disqualified from Rally Mexico
Al-Attiyah won the S-WRC category by 13.5-seconds from fellow Fiesta S2000 driver Martin Prokop, finishing seventh overall.
However, at post-event scrutineering Al-Attiyah’s car was found to be in breach of the rules after the valve in the fuel cell ventilation system did not conform to technical regulations.
Following a hearing attended by BARWA World Rally Team management, the event stewards have excluded Al-Attiyah from the results. The team decided not to appeal the decision.
This now means that Martin Prokop is now promoted to winner of the S-WRC category in Mexico.
