Gordon Shedden completed a clean-sweep for Honda with victory in the final Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race of the weekend at Thruxton.

Shedden had worked his way through from seventh on the grid to run second behind Jason Plato's MG in the closing stages and was closing on the leader when Plato suffered a puncture that saw him run off track.

It gave Shedden the final victory of a strong weekend for Honda, with fellow Honda men Matt Neal and Andrew Jordan joining him on the podium.

Jeff Smith had seemed set to play a part in a Honda 1-2-3-4 having led the race early on, with the Pirtek man having inherited top spot when pole-sitter Adam Morgan was forced to pit to have grass cleared from his radiator.

Smith ran in a podium position for most of the race despite losing the lead to Plato, although a spin at the Chicane in the closing stages while side-by-side with Neal meant he dropped back to sixth.

That meant a fourth place finish for Tom Onslow-Cole in the VW Passat, while Aron Smith was fifth in an encouraging result for Airwaves after their early-season woes.

With Plato failing to score following his puncture, Neal now leads the championship standings ahead of Jordan, with the former leader having slipped to third spot.

Lea Wood won the Jack Sears Trophy for the second time to move into a share of the lead with Liam Griffin - the pair having now taken three wins apiece so far.
