Trio punished following Donington incidents

Jonathan Adam, Andrew Jordan and Harry Vaulklhard have all been hit with punishments following the third rounds of the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship at Donington Park.

All three drivers were involved in incidents during the race weekend, and have now been given fines of £250, official reprimands and three points on their racing licences.

Adam was hit with his penalty for the incident in race one that saw him make contact with the sunshine.co.uk Honda Integra of Paul O'Neill, while Jordan was punished for the incident in race two which saw him tip Rob Collard into a spin exiting the Old Hairpin.

Vaulkhard was punished for the incident in race three while he was battling for a podium finish which saw Fabrizio Giovanardi spin off between McLeans and Coppice.

VX Racing appealed against Jordan's penalty, but the decision was upheld by race stewards.

If these drivers are punished for causing 'un-avoidable incidents' then why is nothing ever done about matt neals driving. At least 60% of his overtaking manouvers result in a car being deliberately pushed off line (so they loose many places) or worse off the track. Neal pitched Jelly into the wall ending his weekend in an incident which was un-avoidable and unnecessary but nothing is ever done. BTCC stewarding is starting to get as bad as the FIA at F1.

I think it is consistancy which is required from the stewards when making these decisions. The Jordan and Vaulkard incidents didn't result in the end of anyones race. However, as already pointed out, Neal's move ended Jelly's whole weekend and Turkington put Jones into the gravel in race 3 ending his race at the first corner.
