This is the dramatic moment when Frédéric Vervisch beat Thed Björk to the final podium spot in Race 3 at WTCR Race of Slovakia this afternoon.

Vervisch, in an Audi Sport Team Comtoyou RS 3 LMS, had been under intense pressure from Hyundai-driving Björk and just did enough to hold on to third place ahead of the YMR driver in a thrilling photo-finish.

“I was pretty sure I wouldn’t make it because I was so slow,” said Vervisch. “I struggled the whole weekend with race pace but I’m very happy, it feels like a victory, one of the best races I’ve had because the fight was so hard.”

It was Vervisch’s fourth podium in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO.
