Gordon Shedden topped a wet first British Touring Car free practice session at Thruxton this morning.
Mat Jackson's Motorbase Ford Focus set the pace early on before Jason Plato (works MG6), Shedden and his Honda team-mate Matt Neal all took it in turns to top the times.
Neal set a sequence of 1m22s before Shedden recorded a 1m20.968s half-way through the session to put him a second clear of the field.
Neal's best of 1m22.020s was still good enough for second, just ahead of Plato's quickest effort. It meant the top three places were taken by the only models not to have been given a turbo boost increase for the weekend by the organisers.
Rob Collard was the top rear-wheel-drive runner in fourth with his WSR BMW.
Andrew Jordan was fifth in Eurotech's NGTC Honda Civic, despite starting the session late while the alternator was changed and the car breaking down just after he recorded a 1m23.343s.
Jordan's team-mate Jeff Smith was sixth, after causing the session's only red flag with an off at the chicane, just ahead of BTCC rookie Adam Morgan in his Speedworks Toyota Avensis.
Brands Hatch polesitter Dave Newsham (ES Racing Vauxhall Vectra) was next, ahead of Jackson, while Lea Wood's Vectra rounded out the top 10.
