Ollie Jackson takes second career BTCC win at Snetterton

Sunday, October 25 2020

Motorbase Performance's Ollie Jackson claimed a second career Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship victory, whilst the title contenders kicked off behind him in the final encounter at Snetterton.

Jackson made one of the moves of the season on the opening lap as he held on around the outside and eventually tucked in ahead of Adam Morgan in the Carlube TripleR Racing with Mac Tools Mercedes. Morgan kept Jackson honest throughout, whilst also holding the chasing pack at bay, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Motorbase man from taking another impressive and hard earned win.

Colin Turkington concluded one of the best weekends of his BTCC career by claiming an unexpected podium - following his earlier win double - as Rory Butcher's Ford Focus crashed into the Toyota Corolla of Tom Ingram on the final corner.

Toyota Gazoo Racing UK with Ginsters' Ingram had been reeling in Butcher's #6 machine in the latter stages and eventually made his move through Coram on the last lap. The initial tap seemingly came from the Corolla through the right hander but as Butcher's Focus skated across the grass he then returned to the track and slammed into Ingram's car at Murrays.

Turkington scampered past and was followed home by fellow contender Ash Sutton in the Laser Tools Racing Infiniti Q50, whilst Butcher crawled home in fifth.

Halfords Yuasa Racing's Dan Cammish claimed sixth, but he was one of many drivers to get stuck behind pole-sitter Chris Smiley in the Excelr8 Motorsport Hyundai. Northern Irishman Smiley defended extremely heavily from the likes of Sutton and Turkington, but it was Cammish who would eventually see off his effort as he tapped into the rear of the Excelr8 man.

BTC Racing's Josh Cook suffered damage in an earlier skirmish with Cammish but he also jumped the recovering Ingram across the line to take eighth, whilst MB Motorsport accelerated by Blue Square's Jake Hill and Laser Tools Racing's Aiden Moffat completed the top ten.
