Viktor Andersson stripped of Race 3 podium at Brands Hatch

TCR UK debutant Viktor Andersson has been disqualified from the third race of the Brands Hatch season opener for failing a post-race ride height control.

The Swede, who won the first race, had finished the race in second place behind race winner Callum Newsham before the penalty was handed out.

The penalty elevates Carl Boardley to second place and Adam Shepherd to third, with Brad Hutchison in fourth and Joseph Marshall in fifth.

Pro Alloys Racing has lodged a protest against the decision.
