The first weekend of Special Tuning Racing's World Touring Car Championship campaign has continued to get worse, as Darryl O'Young's car caught fire in the Sunday morning warm-up at Monza.

The team's entry for this weekend was already down to one car after not having enough parts to run Tom Boardman, and then O'Young suffered engine problems in his SEAT Leon at the start of qualifying.

The team fitted a new engine in O'Young's car, but it caught fire just three minutes into the warm-up session this morning.

Yvan Muller posted the fastest time in the warm-up in a Chevrolet dominated top five.
