It meant the Wheel Heaven/Houseman Racing man was able to make amends for race three at Brands Hatch, where he lost victory in race after failing he ride height test in his Vauxhall Vectra.
“It's absolutely fantastic,” he said. “It's been a long time coming – obviously we had a few problems at Brands Hatch with the ride-height infringement, so to come back from there and get a win makes it even better.”
With Wood then joining Griffin and Kaye in retirement, and with David Nye unable to start due to damage sustained in the start-line incident in race two, Joe Girling took honours in race three ahead of the SEAT of Warren Scott.
