Gordon Shedden remains the man to beat in the British Touring Car Championship round at Knockhill, setting the quickest time in the second session having been fastest in the first session earlier on.
Matt Neal was the early pacesetter but championship leader Mat Jackson soon took up first place on a drying track. Tom Chilton then put his Aon Ford into P1 before the end of the first ten minutes of the 40 minute session.
Chilton's teammate Andy Neate caused a brief stoppage when he went off the track, but after the session was restarted Shedden resumed his place at the top of the timesheets. He remained there until the end of the session, ending up 0.136 seconds ahead of second-placed Chilton.
Frank Wrathall got his Dynojet Toyota Avensis up into a fine third place, edging out Jackson by just three thoustandths of a second. Neal was fifth, followed by the Proton Gen-2 of Daniel Welch, which continued its impressive showing at only its second meeting.
Tom Onslow-Cole was seventh, one place ahead of James Nash who caused a second red flag going off at the same place as Neate. Rob Collard was ninth, with Andrew Jordan completing the top ten. The Silverline Chevrolet duo of Jason Plato and Alex MacDowall were seperated by 0.066s in 11th and 12th respectively. Debutant Aron Smith was 16th in the second of the 888 Vectras.
