Three-time MSA British Rally Champion Mark Higgins (Peugeot 208) won round two at Lydden Hill, leading the Supercar final from lights to flag.

Starting from pole position, Higgins was forced to defend the lead after an early challenge from Liam Doran (Citroen C4), who then retired with broken steering. As Higgins led throughout to score his first British RX win, points leader Julian Godfrey (Mitsubishi Mirage) ran second to maintain his points lead.

Jake Harris (Citroen DS3) in fourth, Oliver Bennett (Ford Fiesta) in fifth and Mike Manning (Subaru Impreza) in sixth all made their first starts of the season. Steve Hill (Mitsubishi Evo) retired from the final with a broken driveshaft.
