Chilton Repeats Success in Race 2

In a near repeat of race one, Tim Chilton won the second of today's British Touring Car Championship races at Snetterton, once again leading from pole to flag

Chilton Repeats Success in Race 2

The 20-year-old Briton dominated both races so far - with the third and last to be held later today. And behind Chilton, the podium finishers were too the same as in race one, with teammates Dan Eaves and Matt Neal in second and third respectively.

Likewise, Neal's main Championship rival Yvan Muller finished again in fourth, and after these two rounds Neal now leads Muller by 19 points.

SEAT's Jason Plato will start the third race from pole position, having finished tenth in race two.
