Neal doubles up for Honda sweep

10 June 2012

Matt Neal took his second win of the day with victory in the third Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race at Oulton Park as Honda completed a clean-sweep of victories.

Neal beat MG rival Jason Plato to victory with Tom Onslow-Cole third as eBay Motors took a second podium of the weekend.

Onslow-Cole led early on but lost his advantage after a safety car period, called when Liam Griffin went off at Druids and Mat Jackson tipped Dan Welch into a spin at Lodge. It was then extended when Rob Collard and Andy Jordan clashed on the restart – with Jordan going into the tyres at Old Hall.

Neal and Plato both got ahead of Onslow-Cole on the restart, with Neal holding on for victory, while behind the top three, Gordon Shedden took fourth to maintain the points lead. Lea Wood was fifth for his best result to date in the BTCC, with Collard, Jackson, Nick Foster, Frank Wrathall and Tony Gilham completing the top ten.

Amongst the retirements, Adam Morgan went out after a clash with Will Bratt having earlier lost his windscreen in a spin on lap one while Aron Smith was forced out by a clash with Chris James.
