Aiden Neate powers to victory in a reverse grid second race at Thruxton.

After the pole sitter Lisle lead for most of the race, Guinchard and Neate powered on in the closing few laps which resulted in Lisle finishing third.

Guinchard was the first to take the lead from Lisle as he took the opportunity at Campbell, which threw Lisle, allowing Neate to also pass him.

Guinchard looked to have the win under his belt but a slip up two laps before the finish allowed Neate to sneak through and claim victory just 0.258 seconds ahead.

Neate commented: “I’m over the moon to get the win. It was a bit of a shaky start, in all honesty, I went down to eighth but managed to get back through and pick them off, one by one. We had a really good speed. We need to carry this on now after a difficult start to the year.” 

Guinchard commented: “I’m pleased. The win was on the table, but it’s onwards and upwards from here. The result also shows that the team have done a superb job, a first podium for me and a first win for Aiden, so it’s fantastic.” 

The title competition Gray and Dunne battled through the grid and managed to finish fourth and fifth. Ugochukwu watched the battle between Gray and Dunne and settled for a successful sixth.

After slipping down the grid at the beginning of the race, Dimitrov and Loake settled for seventh and eighth.

Sharp claimed ninth meaning that Carlin had all three cars finishing in the top ten, with Pearson completing the top ten finishers.
