Back in 2002, three drivers (Trevor Cathers, Bob Fowden and Dickie Curran) were disqualified from the Cork '20' and Roy White was also disqualified from the West 2002. All four drivers were excluded for dump valve irregularities.
I would say that if the letter of the law was applied and that if there was irregularities then yes Carlsson should have been excluded but that would have been extremely embarassing for the organisers (not that I'm condoning it).
