SAIC Volkswagen team’s Wuhan results reinstated

The SAIC Volkswagen 333 Racing team’s appeal against their exclusion from Race 2 at Wuhan has been successful, with Colin Turkington’s third-place finish restored.

The team had appealed against their exclusion from the race after their cars were found not to have the required part numbers on the brake pads, and therefore were considered as non-homologated.

With all brakes in the series provided by a single supplier, Alcon, the team protested the exclusion with the support of the series supplier Gusto Technik, with Alcon confirming it was a manufacturing error and that there was no performance advantage gained.
