VX Racing claimed two further podium finishes for round 23 of the 2008 HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) at Knockhill, Scotland, with reigning Drivers' champion Fabrizio Giovanardi securing second place, ahead of team-mate Tom Onslow-Cole who finished third.

Starting from second on the grid, a solid first lap ensured Giovanardi kept his position and stayed close to the front-running SEAT of Jason Plato for the entire 24-lap race.

Running third, Tom Onslow-Cole defended his place successfully from Matt Jackson's BMW at the start of the race, and maintained his position for the remainder of round 23.

Matt Neal drove a solid race to tenth place, the final point-scoring position, despite starting from 16th on the grid. Jason Plato clinched the win for SEAT.

Tom Onslow-Cole #10

"It was a fairly quiet race for me actually. I had a busy start as I didn't have the best line off the grid and a BMW nearly got me but I kept my position. Unfortunately both Fabrizio and Jason edged slightly away from me after that. I hope to get a top finish in race three now to complete what has been a good weekend so far!"
