Former Grand Prix racer Tomáš Enge has been hit with his second suspension from racing after failing a random drug test conducted during the FIA GT1 race at Navarra last month.
The Czech racer, who contested three races for the Prost team in 2001, previously failed a drug test in 2002 when he tested positive for marijuana. He was banned from competition and lost the Formula 3000 title as a result.
“I am in shock. After what happened in 2002, I’ve been careful in every way of anything related to doping,” he is quoted as saying.
“I suffer from long-term health problems and recently asked the FIA for an exemption so that I can take medicines that are on the banned substances list. Now I will consult with experts to find out how this situation occurred.”
