Andrew Jordan topped the second free practice session at Brands Hatch as the new British Touring Cars showed their pace for the first time.
As in the morning session, Rob Austin's revised NGTC Audi was rapid early on, but this time he was soon pushed back by the Honda Civics.
Reigning champion Matt Neal briefly topped the times in his works version before Jordan took the private Eurotech-run example round in 48.790s.
Jason Plato also made an early run, recording 49.097s in the new works MG6, which was initially good enough for third. He ended up fifth, after being usurped by rear-wheel-drive frontrunners Tom Onslow-Cole (WSR BMW) and Austin late on.
Jordan also pushed hard in the last 10 minutes, receiving a black-and-white warning flag for going over the track limits, eventually lowering his best to 48.639s. That is around 0.4s down on Neal's 2011 pole time in the old Civic.
Mat Jackson's Motorbase Ford Focus was fifth, just ahead of inexperienced team-mate Aron Smith, while Eurotech's Jeff Smith put a third example of the new Civic inside the top eight.
Rob Collard and Nick Foster made it three WSR BMWs in the top 10, both within a second of Jordan.
Gordon Shedden's woes continued, a persistent electrical problem keeping his Honda in the pits for most of the session.
