Honda Racing Team stars Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden have closed in on the lead of the 2010 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship by taking a win apiece at Donington Park on Sunday.
Honda has won the BTCC manufacturers' championship, beating rival Chevrolet.
The Derbyshire venue was the scene for the penultimate round of this season's contest and Shedden powered his Civic to victory in race one and a second position in race two to notch the highest points score of any driver over the weekend.
Neal rounded off a superb weekend for the Civic drivers by dominating the final encounter.
The results mean that Neal is in second place in the points going into the season's showdown at Brands Hatch in three weeks time (October 9/10) and Shedden is tucked four points further back in third place.
Matt Neal said the weekend's performance was a credit to the handling of his Honda.
The Civic was a fantastic car today and we've been able to turn up the pressure in the race for the championship.
