From 3rd on the grid, Josh Smith leapt past front row Anderton and Ticktum to lead until Lando Norris vaulted from 5th to first on successive laps, towing Ticktum behind. Smith challenged but was taken off at Stratford hairpin, Ticktum was blamed and later excluded.
Grimly putting his head down, Ticktum had stormed through the whole field after his exclusion to vie for the lead, only for Connor Hall to pick it up until he clashed with Anderton in the chicane, both dropping back.
Caroline once more took up the reins by getting a run on Taylforth twith Clay in 3rd, whilst Ticktum was hung out to dry and fell to 6th behind McDonald and Smith – another to come from the back.
