Estoril: Pre Race Notes

Penalty for Panis Barthez, grid and starting drivers for season finale


Engine change for Panis Barthez Competition #23

The car’s engine was changed after free practice 1. It is the fourth engine of the season for the Ligier JSP2 of Panis Barthez Competition while the rule book only allows three. As a consequence, the car will serve a stop and go penalty of 2 minutes in the first half of the race upon request of the race director.

Matt Bell, Jean-Marc Merlin, Ines Taittinger, Leo Roussel, Harry Tincknell and Ben Barker didn’t comply with the minimum qualifying lap times set in practice or qualifying (110% of the best time set by the fastest car in their category). They will nonetheless be allowed to race but not to take the start.
