Sunday’s incident between Richard Bradley and Gustavo Yacaman has taken a new twist, following confirmation that Race Stewards have suspended its original ruling in the wake of new evidence being presented.
According to a document issued this evening, the Stewards received new data from the KCMG team indicating that Bradley was under full throttle at the time he was hit by Yacaman in the No. 28 G-Drive Racing Ligier JS P2 Nissan in the closing stages of the Six Hours of Fuji.
As a result, the ruling has been suspended, with analysis on the incident set to be made based on the new data.
Technical delegates will prepare a report for the Stewards for the next WEC meeting, where a final ruling is expected to be made.
