BTCC: Sutton earns third straight double win with dominant win in second race | BTCC

Date:

In an almost mirror image of race one, Sutton made the perfect launch from pole position and quickly took a cantering lead he would never give up.

This time, defending champion Ingram threatened to close in on the NAPA Racing Ford Focus midway through the race and cut Sutton’s lead to just under a second.

However, Sutton looked unfazed and then rebuilt the gap with an eventual margin of victory of 2.2 seconds ahead of the EXCERL8 Motorsport Hyundai i30N.

Sutton’s sixth win in 2023 means he has now won more than half of the races on offer so far this season after claiming an unprecedented third straight double win.

One Motorsport’s Josh Cook again threatened to overtake Ingram early in the race, but the Honda Civic Type-R rider’s attack gradually faded as the race progressed. Cook crossed the line more than four seconds behind Ingram at the end of the race.

Laser Tools Racing’s Jake Hill got hooked on Ingram and Cook early in the race and looked like a likely candidate to step onto the podium for the first time this weekend.

Despite early promise, Hill’s BMW 330e M Sport couldn’t keep up with the pace as the WSR rider fell further into the clutches of the in charge Dan Cammish as the laps ticked away.

Hill ultimately held on to fourth ahead of Cammish in fifth.

Team BMW’s Colin Turkington spent most of the race glued to the back of Rory Butcher’s Toyota Corolla, with the four-time champion finally making the decisive move for sixth in the final stages of the race.

Butcher settled for seventh, while Aron Taylor-Smith, Ricky Collard and Aiden Moffat rounded out the rest of the top ten in eighth, ninth and tenth.
