Le Mans 24 Hours organisers have announced that seven cars will be moved to the rear of the grid for not complying with rules related to minimum qualifying times and completion of night laps.

#22 SO24! By Lombard Racing Ligier JS P2 Judd: Vincent Capillaire, Olivier Lombard, Jonathan Coleman
#27 SMP Racing BR01 Nissan: Nicolas Minassian, Maurizio Mediani, Mikhail Aleshin
#28 Pegasus Racing Morgan Nissan: Inès Taittinger, Remy Streibig, Leo Roussel
#63 Corvette Racing Chevrolet Corvette C7-R: Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia, Ricky Taylor

The seven offending cars will be allowed to take the start in the order they qualified, occupying positions 54 through 60 on the overall grid.

These are the #4 ByKolles CLM/P1, the #27 SMP Racing BR01, the #28 Pegasus Racing Morgan, the #30 ESM Ligier, the #22 So24! by Lombard Ligier, the #40 Krohn Racing Ligier and the #63 Corvette.

It was confirmed that Simon Trummer (#4), Maurizio Mediani (#27) and Antonio Garcia (#63) had failed to complete the requisite five laps of the Circuit de la Sarthe at night.

Meanwhile, Trummer also failed to set a minimum qualifying time in compliance with the rules, along with Ed Brown (#30), Tracy Krohn (#40), Erik Maris (#22) and Remy Striebig (#28).

As such, none of the above named drivers can be nominated to start the race, which begins at 1500 local time.
