Apparently when Eric O’Sullivan went out for his second run he got caught up in all sorts of oil left on the track from the previous car that shut down the track for 20 minutes for oil cleanup. According to someone from his team on the exit of the bank oil was left everywhere causing Eric to make a huge correction and get a low score (65.0). He filed a protest with Formula Drift after requesting another run and being denied from what we are told.
I am guessing Eric O’Sullivan isn’t going to get very far with this complaint especially since he made the Top 32 it appears as I type this (JTP is running) up for the site. Matt Field who ran before Eric we are told also spun due to the oil issues but we haven’t had a chance to speak with him. They focused cleaning up the oil on the front straight failing to remove it from other locations is the report we got from EOS team members. Should be interesting to see if anything happens with this and we will update you guys.
