Ciceley Motorsport's Adam Morgan secured his first British Touring Car Championship race victory in BMW machinery after taking a commanding win during race three at Brands Hatch.

Having started the reverse grid race on pole position, Morgan took immediate control of the race and led every lap to give the Ciceley Motorsport a first BTCC victory since taking on the BMW 330i M Sport challenger for this season.

Following what has been a trying first couple of rounds with the new BMW for the Ciceley outfit, Morgan looked in superb form at the head of the field and controlled the gap at around 1.5s for the vast majority of the race ahead of Cupra runner Jack Goff in second.

Goff was another to grab a podium result in new machinery after the Team HARD driver delivered the brand new Cupra Leon its first rostrum finish in the BTCC with second position after getting the better of Laser Tools Racing's Aiden Moffat in third.

Moffat, himself, very nearly fell out of the podium places on the final lap of the race after two-time champion Jason Plato made a titanic last bid to move himself onto the rostrum with a bold move at Clearways.

Slight contact looked to have given Plato's Vauxhall Astra the high ground as the pair powered to the line, but Moffat was resolute and held onto the position by just 0.012s.

BTC Racing's Josh Cook reinforced his credentials as a title candidate with a fifth place finish ahead of team mate Senna Proctor in sixth.

Having set the fastest lap of the race, Toyota Gazoo Racing's Rory Butcher clinched his best finish of the weekend in seventh, while Ash Sutton reassumed the championship lead in eighth.

Dan Lloyd and Chris Smiley completed the remainder of the top-ten finishers in ninth and tenth.
