Priaulx retains world title for Britain

Andy Priaulx, the 32-year-old BMW driver from Guernsey, overcame tricky conditions to retain the FIA World Touring Car Championship with a win and a fifth place in Macau.

Priaulx, who drives for BMW UK, was one of nine drivers with a chance of winning the title, but wet weather in qualifying relegated some of the candidates to the back of the grid on the narrow, treacherous street circuit, including former British champions James Thompson and Rickard Rydell.

Priaulx and his BMW colleague, Jorg Muller, entered the final round of 10 level on points, one shy of Alfa Romeo’s Augusto Farfus. However, the Brazilian finished a distant fifth in the opening race and crashed out of the second to take himself out of the running.
