Matt Neal reinstated to fourth after winning ride-height appeal

Matt Neal has been reinstated to fourth place for the opening encounter at Snetterton after winning his appeal against a ride-height infringement in qualifying.

The Halfords Yuasa Racing driver lost his fastest time in the session when his Honda Civic Type R was adjudged to have failed the ride-height check early in the session.

With the team racing against the clock to fix the issues, Neal managed to salvage a time good enough for 23rd in the end.

The appeal was based on the fact that a non-official was assisting with the weighing/ride height checking process. The rules state that only registered scrutineers and officials may enter the weighing area.
