Turner got thrown out of first place in the Continental series during post race tech. I can't seem to find what the infraction was , any ideas ?

They failed the post race tech inspection due to an unintentional technical infraction. I'm not clear on the exact details but I believe a leak was found in the intake

A leak on the intake system fails post race tech on a 24 hour endurance race? That's odd. Rally, I love your coverage of the race. The Z4 side profile with the ferris wheel is a truly amazing photo.

Well that's more than I was able to find so far . No one got beyond a " technical disqualification " on any of the sites I've been to so far.
Bummer for Will Turner's team and not to mention the chick that came in second who was subsequently bumped up to first has some rather unflattering baggage.

Thanks Drew.

Randy was referring to a race series that was held the day prior to the 24 hour race. It was a much much shorter race.
