ROAL Motorsport’s Tom Chilton took the World Touring Car Championship pole position at Beijing Goldenport was no fluke by converting his pole into a superb victory. The Chevrolet driver’s success is the first win of the season, although fellow Cruze runner Gianni Morbidelli scored a reversed-grid victory at the Hungaroring in May. Reigate driver Chilton executed a perfect start as third-qualifier Yvan Muller immediately jumped past front row man Gabriele Tarquini’s JAS Honda.

Tarquini was forced to pit from second five laps from home, while team-mate Tiago Monteiro failed to progress beyond lap 14. Former champion Tarquini’s problems promoted points leader Lopez to the final step on the podium. Morbidelli completed a strong but lonely run to take fourth, ahead of Sebastien Loeb, who dropped two places on lap 11 but battled up from seventh past Norbert Michelisz to finish fifth.
