Veiby disqualified after Hansen clash

Ole Christian Veiby has been disqualified from heat four of World RX of Norway today (18 June), following contact with Timmy Hansen that has ruled the Swede out of the remainder of the event.

Veiby picked up a puncture during opening lap contact, compromising his pace, and when Hansen went for the inside going onto lap three, the pair came together, with the Peugeot catching a bump that sent it flying briefly into the air. The damage caused by the heavy landing means Hansen’s weekend is over.

Following a stewards’ enquiry, Veiby has been disqualified from the results of the heat, dropping him from fourth to sixth in the intermediate classification.

Hansen was fined €1,000 for ‘conduct after the incident [that] was not acceptable under any circumstances,’ having approached Veiby in his car at the end of the race in what stewards ruled was an ‘aggressive’ manner.
