Eddie has been excluded from the A final after cutting through an escape road on the last lap of the race. Eddie was battling for the final point when he overshot the hairpin and drove through the escape road, rejoining several places higher up.
It is not yet known how this will affect his rookie status. It is believed that he will still receive his 100 points for making the A final but nothing is confirmed as yet.
There has been no word from the Hall camp yet with both Eddie and his manager (who was not present at the race) both keeping tight lipped.
