Take your pick: a rollercoaster of emotions, it can't be scripted, the stars aligned, it had to be seen to be believed, it isn't over until it's over. Regardless of whichever cliche you assign to the 2019 British Touring Car Championship season finale on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix layout, nothing comes close to encapsulating the drama that unfolded for Colin Turkington to win the title.
This was a driver who had lost his lead in the standings to Dan Cammish ahead of the final race. He was eight points shy of the Team Dynamics pilot and was staring at 24 cars in front of him on the grid after being hit by Matt Neal into a spin on the opening lap of race two. Even the WSR driver himself said that he was "out of the championship" ahead of the final contest.
And yet he is now the BTCC's joint most successful driver with Andy Rouse, having clinched his fourth series crown last weekend, and he only moved into that position with one lap of the 30th and final race of the season to go.
