Nick Foster initially led having started from pole in his eBay Motors BMW but, after an early safety car period, lost the lead to Andy Neate at Tower. Foster dropped down the order as a result while Neate held top spot through a Safety Car period after a shunt involving Liam Griffin and Lea Wood at Tower.

Plato held fourth on the restart but soon worked his way up to second behind his team-mate and moved ahead into the lead and then pulled away to secure his 70th BTCC victory. Behind him, Tom Onslow-Cole and Andrew Jordan completed the podium, with Neate dropping down the order when others battled through.

Got to be one of the worst paint jobs ever, it looks like he crashed into a paint shop...although that pink and green civic is quite hideous too. He can't complain of a lack of power this year, plenty of poke in that thing.
