As stated in the official FIA World Endurance Championship report, the No.50 Corvette C6-ZR1 of Larbre Competition was excluded from the results of the 6 Hours of Silverstone following post-race scrutineering.

Crossing the finish line in second place in the LMGTE Am category, the Bornhauser-Canal-Rees car was found to have a non-conforming safety device, namely the validity date of the car’s fire extinguisher.

Jack Leconte, Team Manager, said of the outcome: “The problem arises from the team installing the wrong fire extinguisher during the car’s preparation prior to the race. Larbre Competition accepts the stewards’ decision and will work hard to modify its assembly procedures during the installation of safety equipment. I am convinced that strengthening these already stringent checks can only improve the team’s performance over the second half of this year’s World Endurance Championship.”

The result promoted Team Felbermayr Proton to second and Krohn Racing to third place in the race results. Despite the exclusion, Larbre Competition remains at the head of the LMGTE Am category in the FIA Endurance Trophies standings.
