There were wins for Colin Turkington, Mat Jackson and Gordon Shedden and two huge crashes in a chaotic and thrilling day at Croft circuit, as Rob Collard went to the top of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship points table.
In the first race of the day, Team BMR’s Turkington started second on the grid but eventually overtook Gordon Shedden’s Honda Civic Type R, crossing the line 2.7sec clear of the Scotsman.
Turkington’s quick start in the opening race was investigated by officials, but he was later cleared of jumping the start.
The second race was shortened to 10 laps after a big collision on the opening lap. Dan Welch’s Proton made contact with the back of Ollie Jackson’s Audi S3, then Hunter Abbott’s Chevrolet and Ash Sutton’s MG hit the cars as they spun. No drivers were injured.
After the restart Turkington was overtaken by Mat Jackson’s Motorbase Performance Ford Focus in the opening lap. Jackson stayed in front and went on to win by 1.19sec.
