Alex Morgan has taken his maiden win in the Goodyear Touring Car Trophy / TCR UK with Bruce Winfield making a late-race fightback to take second place on track and score maximum points towards his title bid.

Whilst Winfield made a good start in his CUPRA TCR DSG, he was passed by both Morgan and Jac Constable before the end of the first lap as he struggled to get his tyres up to temperature.

Behind, Max Hart and Bradley Kent were also sharing the same piece of track as they fought over fourth place before the Irishman took the place from his fellow Hyundai driver.

Starting at the back of the grid, Lewis Kent made progress early on as he moved from sixteenth place to twelfth place by the end of lap one as Mark Smith headed for the pits with an issue with his CUPRA TCR.

Hart continued his progress forward as he then passed Winfield for third place with Brad Kent and Andy Wilmot in two, however, the Hyundai driver went wide at Coppice and rejoined in ninth place, before he began to work his way back up the order.

Morgan led the way from Constable, Winfield, Brad Kent and Wilmot, as further back Lewis Kent passed Darelle Wilson for tenth place as Hart passed debutant Isaac Smith for eighth place further up the road.

Lewis Kent made more progress as he passed Will Butler for ninth place with both Isaac Smith and Hugo Cook close behind as Hart began to close on Kirby for sixth place.

Late in the race, William Butler given a five-second penalty for not respecting track limits whilst the final laps would see a dramatic change upfront.

Morgan began to slow whilst leading as did Constable, which allowed Winfield to close in. The CUPRA TCR DSG driver managed to pass Constable on the last lap to take second place as Morgan took the win.

Brad Kent crossed the line in fourth place ahead of Hart, who passed Wilmot on the last lap for fifth place, with Kirby staying ahead of Lewis Kent as Cook and Danny Krywyj completed the top ten places.

The title chase now closes up as Lewis Kent now leads Brad Kent ahead of Dan Kirby, Max Hart and Bruce Winfield with all five drivers now covered by twenty-five points.
