Audi was left without a win after a roadworthiness test after a 6-hour race in Silverstone, as commissioners measured excessive wear on the sliding pads at the bottom of their car.
The commissioners ’measurements showed that the plates on the No. 18 Audi R7, driven by Andre Lotterer, Beniot Treluyer and Marcel Fassler, were 20 millimeters outside the permitted tolerance, so disqualification followed after the season’s debut.
So the victory for the green table went to Porsche.
The team appealed the commissioners' decision.
