AmD Tuning's Rory Butcher has inherited his first ever British Touring Car Championship race victory after Tom Chilton is hit with five-second post-race penalty at Brands Hatch.

Butcher finished second on the road behind Chilton, but has been promoted to the race win after Chilton was handed a five-second post-race penalty for an incident involving the Honda of Matt Neal.

Chilton had been battling for the race lead with three-time champion Neal and the pair made contact on lap nine at Clearways. The incident in question ultimately proved to be the race winning move for Chilton, before the Ford driver received a post-race penalty.

Chilton still retains his place on the podium in second ahead of Team Parker Racing's Stephen Jelley in third.

Butcher's promotion to the race three win means it's maiden BTCC triumph for both team and driver as AmD Tuning celebrate their first ever win in the series, perfectly capping off their first weekend with the Honda Civic Type R.
