ETC: Four penalised following qualifying.

Four drivers have been given penalties following qualifying for the European Touring Car Cup event at the Salzburgring.

Tomas Engstrom was the biggest name to be affected after race officials found that the drivers hadn't slowed enough under yellow flags, with the Honda driver dropping from fourth down to ninth on the grid as a result.

Andrey Smetsky, Janis Horeliks and Philip Giepel were also given five place penalties and will drop to 18th, 20th and 22nd on the grid as a result.

The four drivers were also handed 500 Euro fines.
