Hi folks,

I know this is rather more recent discussion than most on this forum, but thought it was the best place to ask. While sorting through my photos from the Lamborghini Super Trofeo race at Silverstone on June 3rd this year (a support race for the Blancpain Endurance Series) I noticed a discrepancy on the podium of their first race on the Sunday morning:

The official results as best I could find list Italian drivers Leonardo Geraci and Roberto Tanca in third place, but the drivers collecting the trophies on the lower podium step are Czech racers Jan Urban and Richard Chlad Jr. I have not managed to find an official results sheet, but a report from the race and the official website list Geraci and Tanca as taking the third place honours in the Amateur class. I have not managed to dig up my copy of Autosport from that week to see if it mentions anything, but I was just wondering if anyone had access to any more detailed results information to see if a post race penalty was applied to the Czech drivers after the podium, or the Italian drivers beforehand.

On a related topic, I wonder why Silverstone seems to have one Czech flag with a much lighter blue triangular emblem. I wondered at the time if they had used a different flag, but I think the design is unique.
