Monteiro excluded after SEAT checks

13 May 2009

Tiago Monteiro has been excluded from the second World Touring Car Championship race in Morocco after his car was found to exceed the turbo boost limit.

The results of the second Marrakech race had remained provisional after BMW Team Germany protested against rivals SEAT to determine whether or not the team had complied with regulations limiting the turbo boost pressure on the Leon TDi.

The cars of Yvan Muller, Gabriele Tarquini and Jordi Gene all successfully passed the technical checks, but Monteiro's car was found to exceed the limit and he has now been excluded as a result.

Monteiro's exclusion from seventh place promotes Franz Engstler into seventh, while fellow Independent runner Tom Coronel takes the final point in eighth.
