Harris WCM Disqualification confirmed: FIM press release

The International Disciplinary Court, composed of Mrs. Clotilde Galy (President), Messrs Vassilis Koussis amd Wojcziech Tomczyk, convened on May 16 at the FIM headquarters in Mies, Switzerland, in a public hearing in order to judge the appeal of the team WCM against the decision taken by the FIM Stewards in Welkom, South Africa. The motorcycles Harris-WCM were disqualified for non conformity with Art. 2.2.1 of the Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Regulations (see Press Release of April 25). The WCM team manager Mr Peter Clifford was present at the hearing, together with his lawyers Mr. Ian Mill (QC), Mr Mike Brookes and Mrs Jane Mulcahy. Messrs Oriol Puig Bulto, President of the FIM International Technical Panel, Fabio Fazi, CTI Vice-President, David Hagen, consultant engineer, and Robert Fleck, expert engineer, were present as witnesses and experts.

The CDI considered the appeal acceptable, but confirmed the decision of the FIM Stewards to disqualify the Harris-WCM motorcycle. The costs of the procedure are to be borne by WCM.
