BTCC Thruxton, Colin Turkington takes 100th win for BMW.

Colin Turkington triumphed in the British Touring Car Championship at Thruxton with a dominant win in race three, that also saw the 100th race win for BMW in the series.

Tom Ingram took second place in the Speedworks Motorsport Toyota Avensis after taking that spot from Jack Goff who eventually finished in third place. Matt Neal finished the race in 10th place after a 29th place start following steering problems in race two.

In race two Rob Collard took top of the podium after starting the race in 6th position. A red flag due to a crash between Senna Proctor, Aron Taylor Smith and Daniel Lloyd meant the race was restarted but that didn’t hold back Collard who at one stage went three wide with Jack Goff and Gordon Shedden before emerging ahead of them, powering to his first win at Thruxton, putting Shedden in 2nd and Tom Ingram in 3rd place.


While in race one it was a 1-2 finish for Halfords Yuasa Racing with Matt Neal in first place and team mate Gordon Shedden in second with Jack Goff completing the rostrum, securing the top three spots for the Honda Civic.

Tom Ingram sits in top place of the Championship board with 131 points, 17 points clear of Gordon Shedden while Colin Turkington is just behind him on 112 points.

The paddock moves to Oulton Park on the 20-21st May
