Rob Austin opened his account in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship with victory in the second race of the weekend at Rockingham.

The Audi man jumped from third to first on the opening lap of the race and was able to control proceedings from the front to take top honours ahead of Gordon Shedden, who worked his way to second but couldn't catch the leader and had to settle for second.

The podium was completed by Colin Turkington who earned his latest top three finish with a move on Mat Jackson with two laps to go. Jackson had to settle for fourth ahead of a charging Sam Tordoff with Jason Plato rounding out the top six.

For former points leader Matt Neal, it turned out to be another race to forget after the Honda man was forced to retire mid-way through after running straight on at Deene.

His Honda tagged the rear of Rob Collard's BMW, with the eBay man having run wide with a puncture that would also see him then retire to the pits.

Lea Wood again won the S2000 class and will take the Jack Sears Trophy title if he repeats his success in race three.
