Fabrizio Giovanardi

Drivers penalised after race one

Fabrizio Giovanardi is racing under appeal in the second race at Croft today. The stewards penalised him for contact with Aron Smith, and he would have been sent to the back of the grid due to it being his third penalty of the season.

However the team appealed and the Italian will start from 12th.

Andrew Jordan was also penalised for an incident with Matt Neal. They swap positions on the grid for round 14.

Austin and Giovanardi clash in practice
