Rob Huff made personal history in Argentina at the weekend as he secured places on the podium in both of the World Touring Car Championship races.

The Red Lodge racer, who had never previously achieved that feat with Honda, finished second in the opening race and claimed third spot in the main event.

His performance in South America has seen him rise up to fourth in the standings with 158 points to his name.

That leaves him just two points adrift of Yann Muller in third, while second-placed Tiago Monteiro is only nine points better off.

The championship now takes a break until the beginning of next month when it will then head to Japan (September 3).
