    Post Results from Rounds 10, 11, 12 of the BTCC

    Round 10

    TURKINGTON’S LANDMARK VICTORY
    From second on the grid, Turkington used the better traction of his BMW’s rear-wheel-drive to take an immediate lead and from there was never headed – his victory the first for the German manufacturer in the BTCC for almost 11 years.

    But he was under pressure throughout from both Gordon Shedden and his Team Halfords team-mate Matt Neal in their rapidly improved Honda Civics. The latter actually ran second for a while until controversially tangling with Onslow-Cole while attempting to lap him (the youngster having lost time with a pit stop for repairs to his car).

    This incident lost Neal momentum and Shedden, who had started the race from pole position, was quickly back past into second which he held to the line. Neal was third followed by Turner, Jordan, Giovanardi and Plato.

    1. Colin Turkington - BMW 320si
    2. Gordon Shedden - Honda Civic (+3.957s)
    3. Matt Neal - Honda Civic (+5.038s)
    4. Darren Turner - Seat Leon (+6.892s)

    Post Results Round 11 - Croft

    Round 11

    An action-packed race saw Turner avoid plenty of incidents en route to his first BTCC race victory as he became the fifth different race winner so far this season.

    Turkington, starting from pole, led the early stages but ran wide at a corner and Shedden was able to move in front. But the Scot cruelly began encountering steering problems on his car and started tumbling down the order before later retiring. The race was one to forget for Team Halfords as Neal, the reigning champion, finished 13th and out of the points after an engine problem on the grid forced him to start a lap late.

    Shedden’s demise, meanwhile, allowed Turner to take over the lead from Plato but then came a moment of high-drama when Turkington’s and Giovanardi’s cars tangled and became stranded in the middle of the track – an incident that led to a three-lap safety car period as marshals cleared up debris. Giovanardi would rejoin the race and fight his way back through to sixth, but Turkington was an instant retirement.

    After the re-start, Plato overtook Turner to become the race’s fourth leader, but as they exited the final corner he deliberately backed off to allow his team-mate through for his maiden win. Plato explained: “Darren had very smartly let me past to get an extra point for leading the race, so it was only right that I backed off and let him have back the win which he deserved.”

    Mike Jordan came through to finish an excellent third for what was also his fourth Independents win of the season. Mat Jackson was a strong fourth in his family-run Jacksons MSport BMW ahead of Gareth Howell, at last enjoying a trouble-free run in his Motorbase SEAT Toledo for his best result of the season to date.

    Finishing an astonishing eighth, having started 23rd and last on the grid following an early retirement in race one, was Jason Hughes in his Kartworld team’s bio-ethanol-powered MG ZS. From 18th on the grid, John George also kept clear of the skirmishes to finish a solid ninth in his JAG/TH Motorsport Honda Integra. George would also later be drawn on pole position for race three’s reversed starting grid.

    A recovering tenth, having been nudged off the track while in seventh, was the BTC Racing Lexus of Chris Stockton. And there was a best-ever 11th for Jim Pocklington in the tiny J Team with Tech Tuning squad’s BMW.

    1. Darren Turner - Seat Leon
    2. Jason Plato - Seat Leon (+0.374s)
    3. Mike Jordan - Honda Integra (+3.326s)
    4. Mat Jackson - BMW 320si (+5.247s)
    5. Gareth Howell - Seat Toledo Cupra (+7.099)
    6. Fabrizio Giovanardi - Vauxhall Vectra (+7.438s)
    7. Tom Onslow-Cole - BMW 320si (+11.856s)
    8. Jason Hughes - MG ZS (+30.014s)
    9. John George - Honda Integra (+39.849)
    10. Chris Stockton - Lexus IS200 (+42.473s)
    11. Jim Pocklington - BMW 320i E46 (+1:12.211s)

    Post Results round 12 - Croft

    Round 12

    Giovanardi effectively dominated proceedings after wresting the lead early on from Onslow-Cole. The latter, from third on the reversed grid, led into the first bend but two laps later the experienced Giovanardi was past into the lead and on his way to his fifth win of the season.

    Onslow-Cole finished a lonely second, while in third was the similar car of Jackson, although in the closing stages he came under mounting pressure from a hard-charging Shedden, up from 17th on the grid. Turner, his car now carrying maximum success ballast thanks to his race two win, was fifth from the attacking Neal. Plato, who lost places in a brief moment with team-mate Turner, took eighth.

    1. Fabrizio Giovanardi - Vauxhall Vectra
    2. Tom Onslow-Cole - BMW 320si (+3.628s)
    3. Mat Jackson - BMW 320si (+8.601s)
    4. Gordon Shedden - Honda Civic (+9.067s)
    5. Darren Turner - Seat Leon (+14.131s)
    6. Matt Neal - Honda Civic (+14.536s)
    7. Tom Chilton - Vauxhall Vectra (+15.294s)
    8. Jason Plato - Seat Leon (+16.071s)
    9. Colin Turkington - BMW 320si (+16.819s)
    10. Mike Jordan - Honda Integra (+17.799s)
    11. Jason Hughes - MG ZS (+31.120s)
    12. David Pinkney - Alfa Romeo (+42.253s)
    13. Fiona Leggate - MG ZS
    14. Jim Pocklington - BMW 320i E46 (+1 Lap)
