One win apiece for Jack Young and Andy Yan in Shanghai

Jack Young and Andy Yan claimed one win each from the eventful TCR China race weekend at the Shanghai International Circuit.

The first race saw Honda Dongfeng team-mate Martin Xie Xin Zhe starting from pole, claiming the lead ahead of Young.

The red flags were brought out just two laps into the race as Hyundai drivers Yan and Max Hart came together, an incident which sent both into retirement.

As the race resumed, Xie kept the lead but slowed down on the last lap to allow team-mate Young past as the British driver is in a better position for the championship fight.

David Zhu of Teamwork Motorsport completed the podium behind the wheel of his Lynk & Co 03 TCR.

The second race saw Jason Zhang (Lynk & Co) starting from the reversed grid pole position, but had a slow getaway and dropped to third at the start.

Instead it was the Hyundai duo of Yan and Hart which made the best start, claiming a 1-2 lead ahead of Zhang.

The safety car was called into action early in the race due to an incident between Sunny Wong and Wu Yi Fan.

The field was released on lap five, only for the red flags to come out soon after for the second time this weekend.

This was caused by a spectacular clash between Paul Poon and Wu Wen Fa (Audi), sending Poon’s Lynk & Co onto its roof after trying to avoid the spinning Audi driver (video below).

As the race was restarted behind the safety car, with Yan, Hart and Martin Cao heading home a Hyundai 1-2-3.

Young was involved in a fight for the podium before he was collected by a spinning Zhu, dropping the Honda driver down to finish ninth.

Cao heads the standings on 129 points, Young is second on 117 and Zhang is third on 100 points.

The next TCR China race will be held at the Zhuzhou International Circuit on October 27-29.
