2013 Le Mans 24 Hours - Car no.26 excluded [Editor's Note: This is the way it should be. In NASCAR you can cheat to win and they will never take your result away after the race - just your money and a points deduction.] In compliance with the decision of the Stewards of the Meeting car no.26 has been excluded from the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours as the capacity of its petrol tank has been found to be illegal. The no. 42 Zytek-Nissan is promoted to third place in LM P2.
Driven by Roman Rusinov, John Martin and Mike Conway the Oreca-Nissan entered by the G-Drive Racing by Delta ADR team finished ninth overall in the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours and third in the LM P2 category.
As a result of this decision all the cars classified behind no. 26 move up a place in the overall classification in this category. Thus, the no. 42 Zytek Z11SN Nissan driven by Jann Mardenborough, Lucas Ordonez and Michael Krumm (Greaves Motorsport) is promoted to third place in LM P2 behind the two Morgan-Nissans, nos 35 and 24.
This exclusion also modifies the classifications of the FIA World Endurance Championship of which the Le Mans 24 Hours was the third round and for which double points were awarded.
The G-Drive Racing by Delta ADR team has stated its intention to lodge an appeal against this decision.
