Red flag concluded race 6 of SCCC at Honda Indy Toronto
Two full course cautions followed by an accident lead to red flag finish; race results pending
TORONTO, ON (July 19, 2022) – “Sometimes car racing yields disappointing results, and Sunday’s race 6 was incredibly disappointing for the SCCC drivers and teams as well as race fans at the Honda Indy Toronto, especially after such an exciting SCCC race the previous day,” said Chris Bye, President of FEL Motorsports, SCCC race series organizer. “Today, with an on-going review of yesterday’s racing incidents, we have announced that official race results and awarding of points for this race are currently on hold.”
“Despite the lengthy yellow cautions and the last quarter of the race stopped under red flag conditions, race 6 has been considered official for overall results and points,” said Rolf von Engelbrechten, SCCC Race Director. He explained that all FEL Motorsports Sports Car Championship Canada race events are run under the sanction of ASN Canada GDS. As per ASN Canada rule 9.10.2, for a race to be declared official and full points awarded, a minimum of 61% of the laps or time must be completed. “We did have a sufficient amount of the race completed, in time, for full points to be awarded, with
30 minutes and 10 seconds of running either under green or yellow, giving us 75%,” he said. Therefore, Sunday’s race 6 of the championship, is considered complete.
“Official race results will be released in the coming days,” he added, “once we have had time to review all the data, in car video and reports from track officials, as there may be penalties assessed to various drivers that could affect the final results. Therefore, race results and awarding of points are currently on hold. Because of this delay, drivers or teams will be granted 48 hours if they wish to contest the results once posted.”
Races 7 and 8 are scheduled for August 5-6 at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières, and the final two races of the 2022 season on September 3-4 at the CTMP Labour Day Weekend Sprints at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
