Free practice (1) - Silverstone

Tom Chilton paces first practice at Silverstone
Tom Chilton topped first practice for the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season finale at Silverstone as Ford cars locked out the top three spots on the times.

Chilton and Mat Jackson were the only men below the one minute barrier during the session, with Tom Onslow-Cole in third.

Points leader Matt Neal was fourth ahead of James Nash, Gordon Shedden and Jason Plato as the five title contenders all ended up inside the top seven.

Returnee James Thompson was 18th while the new Vauxhall Insignia didn't appear due to a clutch issue that meant it only arrived at the circuit when the session was underway.
