Instead it was left to Turkington to take the flag in first, just seven tenths ahead of Shedden who was then handed his third win by race officials. Onslow-Cole inherited second with Chilton completing the podium with Jackson, Giovanardi and Turner completing the top six. Jordan was seventh ahead of Plato, with ninth for Tom Ferrier giving him a first points finish of the season. Jason Hughes
took the final point in the Kartworld MG – with Eoin Murray missing out having run in the top ten throughout before a mechanical problem forced him to retire just three laps from the finish.
Erkut was eleventh – again - with Matt Allison
12th – the home favourite having been forced to battle back through the field after an off-track excursion while fighting with Plato dropped him down the order. John George
was 13th ahead of Richard Marsh with Martyn Bell
in 15th, the Team AllAboutProperty.com driver having stormed from 21st on the grid to 13th on the opening lap before slipping back down the order as the race progressed. Simon Blanckley and Fiona Leggate completed the drivers to finish on the lead lap, with Neal a lap down in 18th.
Alongside Murray, Pinkney retired after being punted off by Matt Allison
with the damage to his Alfa Romeo enough to force a retirement while Chris Stockton
managed just two laps before his Lexus was forced out. Rick Kerry failed to start due to engine problems with the diesel BMW 1 Series, the team now working to get the car ready for the second race instead.
