Jackson loses race three win

Mat Jackson has been excluded from victory in Donington Park’s third Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race for a technical infringement.

Officials found after the race his Redstone Racing Ford Focus ST had exceeded permitted turbo boost limits.

It means Gordon Shedden inherits the win ahead of Jason Plato and Tony Gilham.

Shedden’s Honda Yuasa Racing Team Honda Civic had crossed the line in third place.

But he was promoted to second after officials had given Plato a two-second time penalty after his MG KX Momentum Racing MG6 had bumped the Scot’s Honda off the track at the final bend.

This initially dropped Plato back to third which now becomes second following Jackson’s exclusion.

Similarly it means a first ever top-three result for Gilham who had crossed the line in fourth in his Team HARD. Honda Civic.

Provisionally a revised championship points table reads: 1, Jason Plato 84; 2 Matt Neal 80; 3, Andrew Jordan 76; 4, Robert Collard 71; 5, Gordon Shedden 69; 6 Mat Jackson 60 etc.
