What a race…will race three be just as entertaining?
Jordan wins his first race of the year! Shedden second, ahead of Plato, Neal, Wrathall, Jackson, Onslow-Cole, Newsham, Wood, Aron Smith are your top ten. Wow.
Wrathall runs wide, Neal is in fourth.
Jordan, Shedden, Plato, Wrathall, Neal and Onslow-Cole now!
CONTACT! Neal hits Plato, Plato gives him some back, and Jordan leads!
The train of three Hondas are itching to get by.
If Neal is going to pass Plato he’ll have to do it round the outside.
Four for the lead! Shedden tries round the outside of Jordan at Montreal, Jordan fends him off. Great racing!
Nose-to-tail now the leaders! Plato, Neal, Jordan – you could throw a blanket over them!
Neal really close now…
Plato and Neal are edging ahead of Jordan, who has Shedden to deal with. Wrathall has Onslow-Cole in close company.
Shedden is on fire – the good kind, this time. Sorry, couldn’t resist.
Newsham’s hunting down Jackson for 7th now.
Shedden and Wrathall took quite a bit out of time of Neal and Jordan that lap.
Newsham now into 8th – could a reverse grid be salvation after race one heartache?
The run from the Bomb Hole to the final corner is where Neal really reins in the MG. Plato covers the line into Montreal.
Neal is now right behind Plato’s bonnet – the MG really losing out through Coram.
Onslow-Cole still running strongly in 6th, with Mat Jackson doing a great job in the new Focus in 7th.
Shedden passes Wrathall, as Collard emerges from the pits.
Neal passes Jordan as I type.
Matt Neal really enjoying the lighter Civic now.

Onslow-Cole has been passed by Shedden. Jordan edging ever closer to Plato.
Newsham and Aron Smith are swapping places, but Newsham takes 9th into the esses.
Jordan is hounding Plato now. Welch had a puncture, while Newsham is now 10th.
Wrathall made up for a bad start – kind 0f – by repassing the fast-starting Onslow-Cole.
Newsham is up to 12th, while Shedden pressures Onslow-Cole.
Plato leads Jordan, Wrathall, Neal, Onslow-Cole, Shedden, Mat Jackson, Wood, Foster and Aron Smith
