Fifth victory for leader Shedden – R2

Having finished fourth in the first outing, Shedden looked set to extend his lead capitalizing Plato’s start from 22nd on the grid. Rob Collard made an excellent start off the line to gain lead into corner 1 and adhered to it while Mat Jackson catching him up for the lead.

Matt Neal fell back to fifth after a bad start caused by lack of turbo boost in his Honda Civic. Shedden gathered a place up at the start going ahead of Andrew Jordan. The fight to the lead intensified as Jackson and Collard collided in the mid way to Island hairpin. They both made pitstops to repair the damage done and Jackon later retired due to engine failure.

Shedden held on to the lead to take victory from Andrew Jordan’s Pirtek racing Honda Civic. Meanwhile, Daniel Welsch was on course for his maiden podium finish. He was caught in the later stages by the feisty drive through the field from Jason Plato to take the bottom step of the podium ahead of Welsch.

Neal took fifth ahead of Collard’s team-mate Nick Foster and Lea Wood, equalling his previous career-best result of seventh. Liam Griffin in his Ford Focus did well enough to take his best ever finish to a race at eighth ahead of Tom Onslow-Cole and Dave Newsham to close out top 10.

Speedworks Toyota Avensis driver Tony Hughes finished his career best of 12th ahead of Chris James while his tram-mate Morgan had to retire following a spin. James however was lucky in his race one shunt and his patched Vectra somehow finished the race.

Aron Smith split up Ollie Jackson and Frank Wrathall to finish 16th. Andy Neate smoked his MG and retired from the race and the debutant Will Bratt crashed on the exit of Knickerbrook.
