Halfords Yuasa Racing’s Gordon Shedden took the win in the final race of the weekend at Oulton Park.

He led home a team 1-2 with Matt Neal. The win was not without incident as he made contact with pole sitter Josh Cook aboard the Maximum Motorsport with Team Parker Ford Focus. The contact resulted in broken rear suspension for Cook putting him out of the race.

BMW Pirtek Racing’s Andrew Jordan had taken the lead off the line from Cook and began opening a gap. Shedden made his move for the lead as he slid his way past Jordan at Cascades following a short safety car period mid race. Matt Neal immediately followed his teammate and got ahead of Jordan, the top three remained unchanged for the remainder of the race.

In race two he took thirteenth from the back of the grid. Turkington made a number of brilliant moves in the final race to take a well-earnt fifth place finish ahead of teammate Collard.

Team Shredded Wheat Racing with Duo drove brilliantly to finish the final race of the weekend in a well earnt tenth place. The tenth place finish also earnt his first Jack Sears Trophy win.
