The slippery surface caused a major accident featuring WSR BMW drivers Andrew Jordan and Rob Collard, as well as the Volkswagen CC of Will Burns. In a train of cars running in close contention on the run into Maggots, Aron Taylor-Smith clipped Collard, sending him into a slide. Collard slid onto the grass where he skated along and back into the train of cars at the exit of Becketts, smashing into Burns and Jordan at high speed.
Collard exited his car but was clearly in pain, while Burns, although seemingly okay when first getting to his feet, was later found to have bruised or broken ribs. The crash caused the race, now two-thirds of the way in, to be neutralised while marshals worked to clear the cars and debris.
The race was due to restart at the end of lap 19 but, as soon as the safety car pulled into the pits, the race was flagged and ended early with Goff collecting second and Adam Morgan of Ciceley Racing in third.
Ingram led Goff away from the line but the latter looked to be the faster driver in the race’s opening stages, with Ingram now carrying 75kg of success ballast. Goff decided to make his move for the lead on lap three when Ingram left the door open on the exit of Copse. They banged doors into Becketts as Ingram tried to defend the place, but Goff took the place and charged off into the distance.
Ingram, having lost touch with the new leader, was caught by Turkington and Sutton. He managed to hold off the pairing, costing Turkington third in the process as Sutton stole the place with contact on the last lap as the cars ran nose to tail. Turkington was later awarded the place, however, as the stewards deemed Sutton's move to have been advantage by contact.
Fifth place went to Rob Austin in his Handy Motorsport Toyota Avensis, having charged through the field in the race’s latter stages, beating Morgan and the Team Dynamics Honda of Gordon Shedden.
