10-second Stop&Go Penalty for car #27
Offense: Causing a collision
Lap Number: 232
Offending Driver: Rory MacDuff
Car #1 overtook slower class car #27, which claimed the racing line while car #1 was alongside and even ahead, causing contact with car #1 that sent both cars hard into the wall, causing significant damage for both. Because car #27 was not respecting the #1, they are deemed at fault. Not reckless, but avoidable major collision, bumped up to a 10-second StopGo because it is a slower class car not respecting the line the faster car had the right to claim.
The full decision document will be made available to the team managers after the race.
