Four drivers penalised after Hockenheimring race one

Four drivers were handed penalties after the first ADAC TCR Germany race at the Hockenheimring, with Honda racer Albert Legutko losing his maiden podium finish in the series.

An eventful opening race saw Legutko finish on the podium in his older-spec Honda Civic FK2, but the Pole was later excluded from the result for having insufficient fuel in his car.

That promoted Lithuanian Dziugas Tovilavicius into third for his first podium in the series, whilst Philip Walsdorf moved into fourth.

Finn Harri Salminen had finished the race in fifth, but he was handed a post-race 30-second time penalty for contact in the race, dropping him to ninth.

Series debutant Günter Benninger was also handed a post-race 30-second penalty, dropping the Austrian behind Antti Buri to 12th.

Marcel Fugel was given a post-race 30-second penalty, but as the German was a lap down in 14th his finishing position remained unchanged.
