Disqualification for car #66
Offense: Unregistered driver in the car
Lap Number: 118
Offending Driver: Ricardo Santos
Driver Ricardo Santos entered the car in lap 118, despite not having the correct license to be added to a GES lineup. The lineup change was denied for that reason on 13 April 2023 and no dispensation request was filed. While this was overlooked by the management during the RSVP and preparation requirements phase, the driver was still not registered and therefore not eligible to race.
Because the driver was added to the RSVP and the management did not catch it there, the 2 TPP for this infringement are not imposed, but the DQ stands and dispensation must be requested and approved for the driver to be eligible to drive at Le Mans.
The full decision document will be made available to the team managers after the race.
