Briché inherits win as Richard gets 1-second penalty
10 June 2018
The Stewards of the meeting have inverted the first two positions of the second TCR Europe race at Spa-Francorchamps.
They decided to impose a one-second time penalty to Kris Richard for the contact he had with Julien Briché at Les Combes during the penultimate lap, while they were fighting for the lead.
The Frenchman was trying to overtake Richard at the braking, using the outside line, but as the two cars collided he was forced to cut straight through the chicane, which helped the Swiss to maintain the lead and win with a margin of 0.7 seconds.
The penalty gave Briché and the Peugeot 308 their first victory in TCR Europe.
