Tom Onslow-Cole on his way to sixth place

Race one of the 2008 HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) at Snetterton, Norfolk, saw VX Racing rookie Tom Onslow-Cole run a clean, fast race to finish sixth overall.

Onslow-Cole remained in contention for the entire race, holding onto the front running pack and making good pace in his VXR Vectra. The race ran under safety car conditions from lap three to lap eight, following a series of incidents within the field.

Reigning BTCC Champion Fabrizio Giovanardi finished behind Onslow-Cole in seventh, with team mate Matt Neal taking tenth position. The race was won by Jason Plato in his diesel SEAT with a time of 27:38.560.

Tom Onslow-Cole #10

"The racing was tough out there this morning, but I really felt that we had the pace to keep up with the diesel cars. I'm thrilled that I've scored some good, solid championship points which should hopefully help us to move forwards and keep our hold on the championship."
