Adam wins race three at Brands

As Adam continued to run alone out front, Neal then set about finding a way past Plato and made his move on lap 23 at Clearways only for Plato to show the straight-line speed of the Chevrolet to blast back past on the run to Paddock Hill. Neal looked again on the following lap and then had one last chance on the final lap as the pair, with Turkington right behind ready to pounce on any errors, came up behind the BMW of Nick Leason on the run up to Clearways. Leason kept out of the way however and Plato was able to come through to take second from Neal and Turkington, with the Airwaves crew already celebrating on the pit wall as Adam took the flag for his first win.

Behind the top four, Shedden took fifth place ahead of Eaves, while Jones and a recovering Collard completed the top eight; Andy Jordan having pulled into the pits with just laps remaining to retire. His retirement also enabled Harry Vaulkhard to take ninth for Tempus Sport, while Martyn Bell took his second top ten finish of the weekend in tenth.

Tom Chilton took eleventh in the first of the Aon Ford Focus STs ahead of team-mate Alan Morrison, while Martin Johnson held off John George for 13th. Leason, a lap down in 15th, completed the drivers to make it to the finish.

However, with Adam's move for the lead of the race being somewhat robust, it remains to be seen whether the stewards could yet decide the ultimate outcome of the third round of the campaign…
