G-Drive Racing has lost its LMP2 class pole position for the Six Hours of Bahrain, after failing scrutineering.
Rene Rast and Roman Rusinov set an average time of 1:49.672 to put the No. 26 Oreca Nissan on top for the sixth time this season. The car, however, was found to be running non-homologated brake cooling ducts.
As a result, G-Drive’s qualifying times have been cancelled and they will start from the rear of the field.
Already-crowned LMP2 champions Signatech Alpine will assume class pole after Nicolas Lapierre and Gustavo Menezes clocked an average time of 1:49.690.
The race is due to start at 4:00 p.m. local time on Saturday.
