Farfus penalised, Eng now ahead in Race HU Pool A

Philipp Eng is the new overnight leader of Pool A at PURE ETCR Race HU following a decision to penalise Augusto Farfus for a controversial incident in Round 2.

Farfus made contact with Mattias Ekström at Turn 5, passing the CUPRA X Zengo Motorsport driver as both slide wide and off the circuit after the Brazilian put two wheels on the grass as he attempted to make the move.

The Stewards of the meeting judged Farfus to be wholly responsible and penalised him six championship points without adjusting the finishing order of the Battle.

As a result he drops to 21 points – the same running total as Ekström and one behind Romeo Ferraris-M1RA driver Eng.

Hyundai Motorsport N were reminded of their right to appeal the decision.
