Veteran British driver Rob Huff “caused an avoidable collision” during the Macau Guia Race today, the Stewards of the Meeting of the 67th Macau Grand Prix (MGP) announced.

According to a statement by the stewards, they upheld a protest by mainland Chinese driver Zhang Zhiqiang’s “Shell Teamwork Lynk & Co Motorsport against Car 10 driven by Rob Huff of MG XPOWER” after examining the video evidence and heard from the competitor’s representative and driver.

The statement said that “drive-through penalty will be applied to Car 10 and drive-through penalty will be converted to 30-seconds time penalty added to the elapsed race time by the car 10.”

The statement gave as the stewards’ reason for their decision: “Breach of Macau Guia Race Sporting Regulations Article 12.1.d – ‘Caused an avoidable collision’.”

The official final result of today’s Guia Race lists Zhang as the winner and Hong Kong’s Sunny Wong Yat-shing and Lo Zse Ho in second and third place respectively.

With the 30-second penalty applied, Huff ended up in 23rd place among the 26 classified racers.

Huff had tried to win his 10th Guia Race today.

The accident-riddled race was suspended after just six of its 12 laps.
