Brands Hatch BTCC: Marc Hynes excluded from race two

Marc Hynes, Triple Eight MG, Brands Hatch BTCC 2014

Former British Formula 3 champion Marc Hynes has been excluded from the second British Touring Car Championship race at Brands Hatch, as several drivers were penalised.

The MG6 driver finished 20th in race two after a clash with Martin Depper's Eurotech Honda Civic at Graham Hill Bend, but has now been excluded and received four points on his licence.

"We came out of Graham Hill Bend side-by-side," Hynes told AUTOSPORT. "I got the cutback and, from my perspective, he jinked back in.

"It's quite close there and we made contact. We don't want to be firing anyone off into the wall.

"I thought it was a racing incident, but the stewards thought differently."

Team BMR drivers Aron Smith, Jack Goff and Warren Scott have also received time penalties for overtaking the Motorbase Ford Focus of Mat Jackson behind the safety car in race two.

Smith had received a five-place grid penalty ahead of the encounter for contact with Jackson in race one.

An appeal allowed him to start from seventh instead of 12th, but the appeal has been lost so he will take his grid penalty in race three.
