The Briton damaged his car in race one when he hit a wall, retiring just five laps from the end
Monday 19 November 2012
Rob Huff won his maiden World Touring Car Championship after a dramatic day in Macau.
The Briton damaged his car in race one when he hit a wall, retiring just five laps from the end. Yvan Muller won ahead of Alain Menu.
It meant that should Menu triumph in race two, Huff had to finish at least sixth to take the overall title and one place higher were Muller to win.
Menu won, 0.32sec ahead of Huff, with Muller third - giving Chevrolet a clean sweep in their WTCC farewell.
Huff said "I think it will take quite a while to sink in, if it will ever do.
"It has been an emotional weekend and an amazing day, especially considering that I have nearly spoiled everything with my incident in the first race.What a mistake from me it was! But we had a happy ending. So we will ignore that."
