Waterbury, VT – American-Canadian Tour (ACT) officials have announced the disqualification of Karl Allard from the Chaudiere 150 held at Autodrome Chaudiere in Vallée-Jct., QC on July 11 and 12.
Allard crossed the finish line in fifth place, but was found to have an illegally altered left-front tire during post-race technical inspection, which was recently confirmed by the team after the tire was sent to American Racer headquarters for further evaluation.
In addition to losing all points and purse money from the event, Allard will forfeit all driver and owner points earned to date for the 2015 season. Allard must also pay a $500 fine to be eligible to return to competition. This $500 will be added to the driver point fund.
Both Allard and his #7ON team have also been placed on probation for the remainder of the 2015 ACT and Série ACT seasons.
