Turbo inlet found to be illegal
All three cars Mitsubishi Lancer Evo's entered into Telstra Rally Australia by Tango Rally Team have been excluded from the rally results.
A Stewards' meeting determined that the three cars of Marcos Ligato, Sebastian Beltran and Gabriel
Pozzo were inspected by the FIA Technical Delegate who found the turbo inlet restrictor to be illegal.
As well as exclusion from the event, the team has had its PWRC points withdrawn and have been suspended from the remainder of the season.
"After due deliberation, the stewards conclude that the car of Competitor No. 32 Entrant and Driver Marcos Ligato, Co-driver Ruben Garcia does not conform to FIA Appendix J Art. 254 Paragraph 6.
1 as all the air necessary for feeding the engine does not pass through the restrictor,” a statement read.
"Both crew members apologised to the Stewards and stated that they were not technical people and were ashamed at this happening to them."
