Several drivers have felt the wrath of the stewards for their on-track behaviour at Silverstone this weekend, with Lea Wood picking up six points and Rob Austin four points and an exclusion, whilst others received smaller penalties.
JWT Performance driver Lea Wood was given a three point endorsement on his racing licence for an incident with the Motorbase Ford Focus of Liam Griffin in the first race, as well as a £500 fine. Wood then received the same penalty again after an incident with Matt Neal’s Honda in race three, which saw Neal taken out of the race.
Rob Austin picked up the next heaviest penalty, with a four point endorsement and exclusion from the race, where he had originally finished in ninth place. This was for the incident with the Proton of Dan Welch at Copse on lap three whilst they were fighting for second.
Frank Wrathall was given a three point penalty and a £500 fine for an incident which saw Dave Newsham taken out of the third race; Andy Neate (as reported earlier) was given a £500 fine and a three point endorsement for the incident with Andrew Jordan in race one, and Tony Gilham was given a two point endorsement for not slowing down for the yellow flags as he tried to catch-up to the field after his drive-through penalty in the same race, spinning out at Becketts where Jordan’s car was being recovered.
Andrew Jordan also received a reprimand for contact.
The MSA rulebook specifies that once a driver picks up 12 points or more within a rolling one-year period, their racing licence can be suspended.
