Thompson and Muller take wins at Silverstone

Thompson brushed aside his early season bad luck to win a thrilling round 11, while Muller, already a winner of two races this year, took round 12 in style.

But Ford's Alain Menu remains at the top of the championship standings despite recording only one fourth place finish. The Mondeo man leads his team-mate Anthony Reid by three points, the Scot keeping up his record of finishing in the top three at every meeting this year with second in round 11.

Muller lies third, ten points behind Menu with his team-mate Jason Plato fourth. Matt Neal and Colin Blair took a win apiece in the Michelin Cup for Independents while Alan Morrison won both rounds in Class B.
