Nürburgring runner-up disqualified two weeks after race
The Porsche which finished second at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring has been disqualified two weeks after the race.
However, that result has now changed after a penalty was communicated 13 days after the conclusion of the race.
The car had already been given a 5min:32s penalty with a few hours on the clock for a slow zone speed violation, seeing the #911 finish in the runner-up position as a result after leading for more than half the race.
Irregularities in the car’s power output measured during post-race scrutineering saw a new penalty imposed and the #911 was ultimately disqualified from the result.
The steward’s report said: “The 494 hp (including four percent tolerance) stipulated in the BoP for testing on a chassis dynamometer was exceeded.”
Manthey-Racing have the opportunity to appeal the decision, however, it is not yet known if they will.
As a result of the disqualification, the #3 Mercedes-AMG Team Black Falcon moves up to second, while the #14 Audi Sport team Car Collection entry is elevated to third.
