Colin Turkington secured the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch on Sunday, despite Jason Plato taking the first race win of the weekend.
The final three rounds of the BTCC were full of drama, in part thanks to the rapidly worsening conditions as the event drew on.
In the first race Turkington finished third, which meant he was guaranteed championship victory even if he failed to compete in the remaining two races at the Kent circuit.
The BMW of Nick Foster and Warren Scott's VW CC collided on lap eight, embedding the VW in the wall and necessitating a safety car. As the safety car withdrew Plato held the lead and took his sixth first place win of the seasons, while Sam Tordoff finished in second with Turkington behind.
During the second race Plato clipped Turkington after he attempted to overtake into Paddock; Turkington ended up in the gravel, ending his race. Plato won but was later denied the victory following an official decision regarding his collision with Colin Turkington; he was also demoted to the back of the grid for the start of the third race.
