Tarzaan should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Huff was dumb. He lost a lots of engine power, he clearly had no chance even to get a single point, and he close the door to Norbi. He had to park the car or let all drivert gently.

He could, but in this clase the cars behind him - Bennani, Coronell - get close to norbi and the cars front of him gets a big advantage...

The camera angle wasn't good but I think they both should leave each other more room.

Well Vettel didn't let Raikkonen through when he had steering problem in Hungary.
If you want touring example here it is. When Yvan Muller had problem with his car at Knockhill he didn't moved to side, but stayed on track in front of mayhem that happened behind him, until he went to the pit.

Seb won that race, so that is the worst example.

Huff doesn't had a chance even for a single point...

Still think it was a jerk drive from Huff.

About the Yvan Muller's example, he is might be the dirtiest touring car driver ever...

Michelisz completely at fault. He wasn't even half a car-length beside, just tapped the rear wheel where it was almost impossible to overtake.
I agree, Michelisz could have easily overtaken Huff on the next straight. So he must be cursing himself.

Three good races this weekend. Just Hyundai needs a bit more BoP, given their performance with +60kg.

I also like that Nordschleife in a TCR car is very challenging, based on comments from drivers

I read about the penalty, but still disagree. Huff was de facto out of the race because of his engine (?)failure, with a car like that he should not fight and block the cars behind.

Yeas, Norbi wasn't even a half car lenght beside, because when he realize that Huff close the door try to break, instead keep his car on position and push out Huff.

Because at this level, there isn't that much difference between the drivers - especially seeing how some of the drivers in the Hondas, VWs and Audis are absolutely seasoned pros.

Yes, I agree with Speed-King - there are very good drivers in the field like Guerrieri, Huff, Vernay, Shedden who just can't be that far away.

Also, look at the latest TCR Europe race, Hyundai was the car to beat even after BoP measures.
