Andrew Jordan shot to victory in race two in the Pirtek Honda after pulling a big lead pretty early on in the race. The start of the race saw drama when the cars of James Kaye and David Nye collided and crashed into the end of the pit wall. Which resulted in the safety car heading onto track as soon as the race had started. Jordan finished ahead of Jason Plato who finished second and Gordon Shedden in third.

The last race of the day was a race of determination as the grid was reversed and saw Previous world champion Colin Turkington take pole position in the new Ebay Motors BMW 125i M-Sport. Colin went on to win the last race four seconds ahead of Gordon Shedden and his team mate Matt Neal in third.
