Has anyone seen an explanation on the exclusion of Gino Rea after his fantastic race long battle with Laverty? So far nothing on the official website, not even a line...
It's odd but it seems to me that these last couple of years SSP has been the category where we have seen many enquiries and exclusions due to non conformity, much more than in SBK or Grand Prix Racing.
There has been some issues in STK as well but would there be a reason teams would cheat (intentionnaly or not) more in SSP than SBK?

Apparently, this is all about a idle control valve.
Intermoto may appeal the decision since, according to them, lots of teams have been (and still are) using this kind of part.
It should be noted that this decision could be decisive for the world supersport championship since the best result of both Gino Rea and his Intermoto team is the difference between a 12 points and a 8 points lead for Sofuoglu over Laverty, meaning the turk rider could finish second in the last 2 races and still be crowned if the decision is confirmed.
