Tom Chilton has notched up his first World Touring Car Championship win of the season at the Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo having fended off a late charge from Rob Huff.

Chilton grabbed the holeshot from reserve pole sitter John Filippi into turn one and built up a comfortable margin while Huff battled through the pack.

Despite closing to within a second of the Sebastien Loeb Racing Citroen driver Huff wasn't able to force a mistake and Chilton claimed his first win in the series since China 2014.

With Huff settling for second, Yvan Muller claimed the final podium spot ahead of Tiago Monteiro with championship leader Jose Maria Lopez rounding out the top five.

Norbert Michelisz, who starts alongside Lopez for race two, claimed sixth ahead of Tom Coronel, Mehdi Bennani and James Thompson as Filippi faded late on to take the final points place.
