Dušan Borković has slammed the ‘unprofessional behaviour’ on track in the TCR Europe series, after the Serbian driver was taken out of the points in race two, before he was excluded from the result for ‘inadmissible behaviour’.

Borković was running inside the top ten on the last lap of the rain-affected second race at the Red Bull Ring, when he was hit by fellow Hyundai driver Nelson Panciatici at Turn 6, eliminating him from the race.

The incident cost Borković a points-paying position, and instead left him with his third retirement of the season and moved Panciatici ahead of him in the drivers’ standings.

To compound matters, Borković then went to confront Panciatici in the paddock after the race, but mistook the Frenchman’s car for that of his team-mate Natan Bihel.

The Serbian driver’s behaviour earned him a disqualification from the race by the stewards, with the incident being referred to the parent ASN of the series [in Portugal], to the competition ASN [in Serbia] and to the FIA for further action.

Borković slammed the driving standards in the series, and said he would talk with Target Competition about what the next step to take should be.

“I don’t want to say anything anymore,” said a statement from Borković afterward. “This repetitive unprofessional behavior on the track shouldn’t be acceptable.

“Unfortunately, it is and certain drivers are allowed to act however they want.

“I have to see with my team what should our next step be. Thank you all for your support!”
