Hansen stripped of World RX victory after incredible last-lap pass

A decision by the race stewards has altered the race outcome.

In the final corner of the final lap, Tommy Hansen made a daring move by Mattias Ekstrom, stealing the victory out from under the DTM star in his home event.

However, officials docked the Swedish driver and Team Peugeot one position due to 'exceeding track limits' and awarded the trophy to Ekstrom. Both were hoping to earn their first win of the 2015 season.

Andreas Bakkerud finished third while championship leader and reigning champion Petter Solberg failed to finish after getting too much of a kerb and suffering a steering failure.
