BRC Racing duo Nicky Catsburg and Augusto Farfus have been penalised for separate incidents in the second FIA World Touring Car Cup race at the Ningbo circuit in China.

Catsburg was handed a post-race 30-second penalty for contact with Daniel Haglöf, dropping the Dutchman from eighth to 15th.

Farfus, meanwhile was given a post-race five-second penalty for contact with Thed Björk, but the penalty was in effect meaningless as the Brazilian had already retired from the race.

There were no further penalties, despite several incidents and contacts, particularly in race two.
