The Lister Storm of Eric van de Poele, Jamie Campbell-Walter, Nicolaus Springer and Andy Wallace has been excluded from the Spa 24Hrs for a pit lane entry infringement.

The car had been in an excellent fourth place at the 20.5hours mark, when Campbell-Walter found the car lost all drive at La Source due to an apparent gearbox problem. The Englishman then attempted to return to the pits for repairs through the entry at La Source - instead of the correct 'F1' pitlane entry. However, they were by no means the first car to do so.

It is not yet known whether the points previously allocated to the team at the 6 and 12hr marks will count.

Meanwhile, the #15 Storm of David Sterckx, Bobby Verdon-Roe, Miguel de Castro and Philippe Steveny remains in third place, with the #1 Larbre Competition Viper still leading comfortably with just over 3 hours to go.
