DragonSpeed has withdrawn its BR Engineering BR1 Gibson from this weekend’s Six Hours of Spa.
The American team, which was due to contest the penultimate round of the 2018-19 FIA World Endurance Championship season with its LMP1 contender, has cited issues sourcing electrical components needed for the car’s rebuild since last month’s 1000 Miles of Sebring as the reason for its withdrawal.
Ben Hanley, Henrik Hedman and James Allen were due to drive the Dallara-built car this weekend.
It leaves a seven-car LMP1 grid and 34 entries overall for Saturday’s race, including DragonSpeed’s LMP2 entry, which will still race with drivers Roberto Gonzalez, Pastor Maldonado and Anthony Davidson.
Track action gets underway on Thursday.
