West Surrey Racing's Colin Turkington, driving a BMW 125i M Sport, has won the third British Touring Car Championship race at Donington Park. He finished second on the track, but was moved up when the first-place Honda Civic R driven by Gordon Shedden was excluded after the race because of a ride-height violation.

Turkington had finished fourth and fifth in the first two races of the day. His teammate Rob Collard finished second in race two, which was won by Tom Ingram in a Toyota Avensis. Collard finished sixth and twelfth respectively in races one and three. Andrew Jordan in the third West Surrey 125i M sport finished fifteenth in races one and two and eighteenth in race three. The overall win in race one went to Aiden Moffat in a Mercedes A-class.

After Donington Turkington is second in driver points behind Ingram, while West Surrey Racing and BMW lead team and manufacturers points. The series runs again at Thruxton on May 6-7.—Brian S. Morgan
