Jason Plato denied Tom Chilton and Team Aon their first win of the season as he passed the Ford on the run to the finish line in the first race of the day at Brands Hatch.

Chilton had led Plato from pole position but was under continued pressure from Plato, until the end of the final lap when he ran wide out of Stirlings, losing momentum to Plato's Chevrolet, eventually resulting in Plato taking the victory by just 15 hundredths of a second, the closest winning margin in championship history.

Fabrizio Giovanardi completed the podium in third, while standings leader Colin Turkington finished eighth after starting tenth.

The result means that Giovanardi is now just 6 points behind Team RAC driver Turkington, with Plato just a further eight points behind, with 34 points still up for grabs in the remaining two races today.

Round 29 of 30 is due to begin at 14:20 local time, with live coverage on ITV4.
