Muller makes it an Oulton double

23 May 2004

Yvan Muller made it an Oulton double today as he took victory in the third race of the day in the British Touring Car Championship.

Muller fought his way past Jason Plato on a track that was lined from the deposited oil from Anthony's Reid's MG after a engine swap from the earlier races.

Plato defended his early lead but was to be passed and ultimately retired from the race and left a circuit that was becoming increasingly strewn with touring car debris.

Muller lead Matt Neal across the line James Thompson took third. Rob Collard made a magnificant charge through the field to take fourth after starting from the back of the grid following his race two incident with Rob Huff.
