GT key Sticks in Ignition?

Just trying to fix all the issues on my new GT and have come across a bit of a strange one.
If I put the key in ignition and turn it to the first click I get acc power and leave it for a moment for glow plug light to go out. The key will now not move to the next position to start the engine. It just feels like the steering lock is on (but isn't). But..... if I turn the key all the way without stopping for a moment it works fine?
Anyone else experienced this?

The barrel could be worn and allowing it to go past the ignition point and towards engaging the starter, it will only allow one attempt per turn on.
Try being careful and only going as far as the second stage and see if it is OK then.

yeh I sometimes get that too. Usually just turn the key back and start again. Very infrequent though.

Tryed the other key? It's either worn barrel or worn key.
