Andrew Jordan claimed his first British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) win of the 2013 season as he dominated the second race at Donington Park.

Jordan passed race one winner Gordon Shedden at Redgate on lap six and streaked clear for a comfortable victory.

Jason Plato also passed Shedden to take second with the defending champion third.

Plato, in his 400th BTCC race, had battled with Matt Neal, in his 500th BTCC race, for third early on, running side-by-side from the start/finish line all the way down to the Craner Curves, where he’d pass Shedden on lap 16.

Adam Morgan finished just over half a second behind Neal after shadowing the four works drivers throughout the race.

Sam Tordoff eventually worked his way passed Colin Turkington, who would also succumb to Dave Newsham and Aron Smith – again the first Motorbase Ford – with the BMW eventually finishing 9th.

An impressive tenth was Tom Onslow-Cole in the PPCGB Kraftwerk Racing VW CC – his reward is pole position in race three after the number ten was chosen at random in the reverse grid draw.

Lea Wood claimed Jack Sears honours after many of his rivals suffered dramas at various points in the race.
