Honda WTCC cleared of tech­ni­cal breach

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The Honda World Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship team was cleared of any breach of the tech­ni­cal reg­u­la­tions af­ter checks last Sun­day at the Hun­garor­ing.

Stew­ards de­cided to in­ves­ti­gate the flat floors of all four Honda Civics af­ter Satur­day’s qual­i­fy­ing ses­sion, but could not com­plete their find­ings be­fore the start of the first race, which meant the qual­i­fy­ing re­sult – on which the grids for the two races were based – re­mained pro­vi­sional.

The re­sults of Sun­day’s races were pro­vi­sional un­til the con­clu­sion of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, but a statement re­leased later that day con­firmed that the cars were com­pli­ant.

Rob Huff had chal­lenged for vic­tory in the sec­ond race, un­til a driv­ethrough penalty ended his hopes ( see story above).
