No wobbles for Jelley with first BTCC win

When the Italian did make his way by, it came as a double-whammy for Turkington, who had spun after clipping the rear of Nash's Lacetti under braking. The Irishman would work his way back into the top ten again by the chequered flag – just – but still the outcome signified four points ceded to his principal rival in the chase for the coveted crown.

The only consolation for the reigning double Independents' Champion, indeed, was the fact that his team-mate Jelley was away and gone out front, managing his advantage to perfection and delivering Team RAC its seventh success of the 2009 season as he eventually crossed the line almost three-and-a-half seconds in front of Plato, who himself succeeded in reducing the deficit separating him from the top of the drivers' standings to just 29 points – and is now very much in play for the title, whatever he might say.

Jackson continued his record-breaking run of successive rostrum finishes by adding a seventh to his tally in third place right in the wheel tracks of his team-mate, with Adam running wide and onto the grass on the last lap and relinquishing fourth spot to Collard, and Giovanardi, Jordan, Nash, O'Neill – who faded in the closing stages following a fine early run – and Turkington completing the points-scorers.
