A handful of drivers have been reclassified by the FIA, following the release of the latest driver ratings list last week.

Krohn Racing driver Nic Jonsson is now Silver-rated, with the 48-year-old Swede having been downgraded in the buildup to last weekend’s European Le Mans Series round at Paul Ricard.

Jonsson’s former teammate at KIA Racing in Pirelli World Challenge, Mark Wilkins, also now holds Silver rating, in what appears to be a new application by the Canadian driver, who had also previously held Gold status.

Additionally, German driver Lance David Arnold, as well as Stefan Wilson, the brother of the late Justin Wilson, have also both been reclassified as Silvers as well.

While not yet having broken into sports car racing, the 25-year-old Wilson has been working on a number of options in recent months.

The latest round of driver rating changes follows a few revisions made earlier this year, including for Jeff Segal, who had moved from Gold to Silver rating prior to his class podium finish in his Le Mans debut.
