Soper arrived as the points leader, but it wasn’t to be his weekend. The front-wheel drive brigade made steps, and it was Cleland on pole with Winkelhock second and Soper third.
Cleland was away slowly, perhaps remembering last year when he went off on cold tires. Winkelhock led ahead of Soper, Cleland, Hoy and Allam. Hoy tried to pass Cleland, but he destroyed his car after probably a puncture at Druids. After a few laps Cleland went by Soper, who suffered an off three laps later possibly due to a broken steering or suspension component.
Winkelhock had a huge lead (for BTCC standards) of 6 seconds and eased to the line, with Cleland second and Allam third.
