Turkington doubles up at Snetterton with BTCC race two win

Sunday, October 25 2020

Team BMW's Colin Turkington has taken his second win of the day as the 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship contenders went wheel-to-wheel in the second bout at Snetterton.

The top five in the overall Drivers' standings occupied the top five positions for the majority of the race, with the only change coming during a last lap showdown following a late safety car period.

The battle simmered rather than reaching boiling point as Turkington produced a commanding victory from Toyota Gazoo Racing UK with Ginsters' Tom Ingram, although the latter did well to hang on for second.

Motorbase Performance's Rory Butcher had nibbled at Ingram's Toyota Corolla several times with a significant effort made on the final lap. Butcher made a late late lunge on Ingram at Wilson - leading to contact - which enabled Laser Tools Racing's Ash Sutton to join the fray. Ingram fended them off as Sutton slipped into third while Butcher fell into the clutches of Halfords Yuasa Racing's Dan Cammish.

It was Butcher's turn to take a hit at the final turn as Cammish's Honda Civic Type R slid into the Ford Focus through Murrays. It was Cammish that lost out, however, as the recovering Jake Hill pipped the Halfords Yuasa Racing car to the line by just 0.047s - breaking the race-long monopoly of the top five contenders.

BTC Racing's Josh Cook scrapped to seventh ahead of the amazing Ollie Jackson in the Motorbase Ford Focus. Jackson began the contest in 21st and made up ten places in the first few laps, before making further progress in the closing stages. He eventually ran side-by-side with Adam Morgan's Mercedes over the finish line and claimed eighth place by an incredible 0.003s.

Excelr8 Motorsport's Chris Smiley completed the top ten order and was further rewarded with reverse grid pole for the final contest later this afternoon.
