After excluding the PK Carsport Corvette C6.R from the Zolder results on Monday the International Court of Appeal of the FIA today published the decision concerning the appeal lodged by the RACB against Stewards decision number 17 at Zolder. A decision that confirmed the winner of the 2009 FIA GT Championship.
Hearing both parties in Paris last week the International Court of Appeal found the appeal inadmissable. As a result the Vitaphone Racing Team Maserati MC12 of Andrea Bertolini and Michael Bartels can now officially be crowned FIA GT1 Champions.
The results of the Zolder race remain provisional pending the appeal against the exclusion of the #4 Corvette. PK Carsport driver Mike Hezemans already admitted that the exclusion of the Corvette had nothing to do with PK Carsport making a mistake in preparing the car, but with an wrong picture of the part in the homologation papers that came from GM.
