When the race resumed, Shedden quickly lost further places before electing to bring the car in for safety reasons which promoted Jordan into a podium place behind the SEAT pair – with Plato having been allowed through into the lead by Turner. Jordan however wasn't safe in the place with Chilton breathing down his neck and both Jackson and Gareth Howell
not far behind – Howell having passed both Stockton, who took a trip through the grass at the Jim Clark Esses, and Onslow-Cole to go sixth, with Tom now seventh from Giovanardi, Erkut Kizilirmak
and Simon Blanckley.
As was the case earlier in the day, the battle for points between Erkut and Blanckley was proving to be of the more intriguing with Blanckley doing his best to find a way past the Turk before both retired on 13, apparent contact between the two at Clervaux having seen Erkut go through the gravel and Blanckley pull off after the Chicane. It promoted a recovering Giovanardi and Jason Hughes
into the top ten – the latter having started dead last in the Kartworld Racing MG ZS.
Giovanardi found way past Onslow-Cole on lap 14 when the rookie got out of shape through Barcroft but the race would have a sting in the tail for the VX Racing outfit – with Chilton retiring just laps from the finish when his gearbox gave up the ghost while trying to take third from Jordan.
As it was, Plato looked primed for a fifth win of the year, before slowing to allow Turner through out the final corner, Plato settling for second with Jordan third. Mat Jackson
took fourth in his BMW ahead of Howell with Giovanardi sixth and Onslow-Cole seventh.
Hughes took eighth from John George
(who will start race three from pole position) with the final point going to a recovering Stockton. Jim Pocklington was eleventh ahead of Martyn Bell
– who took a trip through the crops belonging to a local farmer and finished the race with shrubbery hanging from the wing mirror of his BMW – with Neal completing the finishers in 13th having entered the race late from the pit-lane.
