Just hours after BMW ORACLE Racing failed to disqualify Alinghi in New York before the America’s Cup Match race, Russell Coutts and his BMW Oracle team attacked the Defender on another front lodging a request for redress with the International America’s Cup Jury.
This brings their total Jury applications to seven one week prior to the Match beginning. “Having failed to disqualify us in New York before the Match date, BMW Oracle are now not happy with the decisions of the New York courts and expert panel opinions. The Jury will deal with these applications along with others in due course and we are looking forward to starting the race for the America’s Cup on the 8 February,” said Grant Simmer, Alinghi design team coordinator.
