Anthony Reid chalked up two wins as the British Touring Car Championship visited his home country of Scotland yesterday.

Reid's victories on this hilly circuit in Fife left him third in the overall standings, but he closed the gap on the leader Yvan Muller to 23 points. The other win yesterday went to Jason Plato.

Reid in the independent WSR MG led the first race from start to finish, as did Plato in the second leg. However, the final race in which Reid came from seventh on the grid to win proved more entertaining.

Dan Eaves in his independent Honda was another star of the weekend, picking up a second a third and a sixth place. However, an angry Muller came away from the meeting with just a one-point lead over his Vauxhall team-mate James Thompson as they were both forced to spend the day fighting for the minor places.
