Poggiali disqualified from the Marlboro Grand Prix of Spain

During the 125cc race of the Marlboro Grand Prix of Spain on Sunday 5 May 2002, rider Manuel Poggiali (RSM) was judged to have ridden in an irresponsible manner, causing danger to Alex de Angelis (RSM), which is an infraction to Article 1.21.2 of the 2002 FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Regulations. For this reason, the Race Direction, composed of Messrs Claude Danis (FIM), Javier Alonso (Dorna), Paul Butler (IRTA) and Franco Uncini (riders' representative), decided to exclude the rider Manuel Poggiali from the results of the 125cc race. An appeal was lodged to the FIM Stewards, who confirmed the decision of the Race Direction.

The decision is final. The results of the 125cc race have been adapted accordingly.
