Halfords Yuasa Racing’s Dan Cammish topped the timesheets ahead of team-mate Matt Neal in second practice of the British Touring Car Championship at Oulton Park, going one better after placing second in the opening session.
He set the early pace in the 40-minute practice and continued to improve throughout the duration of the session, but no runners dipped beneath Sam Tordoff’s opening practice benchmark of 1:26.073.
Cammish’s best effort was just under half a second adrift of that with a 1:26.505 time, with the lack of pace seemingly due to track temperatures rising some 15 degrees between sessions on a humid day at the Cheshire circuit.
Neal was just 0.044s off Cammish’s time, with an impressive performance by Jake Hill in his AmD Tuning Audi S3 meaning he placed third come the end of the session.
Jason Plato continued his practice form in fourth at one of his most successful circuits, while Tom Oliphant was the best BMW runner in fifth position.
His WSR stablemate Andrew Jordan endured a difficult session after a spin at Old Hall Corner brought out the red flag early on, with minor contact causing a splitter change on his BMW 3 Series.
In sixth position was practice one pacesetter Tordoff in his older FK2 Honda Civic, with Aiden Moffat’s Mercedes A-Class in seventh ahead of reigning champion Colin Turkington.
Ciceley Motorsport’s Adam Morgan made it two Mercedes in the top ten by placing his A-Class ninth, while 2018 runner-up Tom Ingram rounded out the top ten in the new-for-2019 Toyota Corolla.
Ollie Jackson placed 11th in his Ford Focus RS while Brands Hatch podium finisher Stephen Jelley finished 12th in his older BMW 125i M Sport.
BTC Racing’s Chris Smiley was next in his FK8 Honda Civic, with Rob Collard’s Vauxhall in 14th and 2017 champion Ash Sutton in 15th position.
Qualifying for the opening British Touring Car Championship race at Oulton Park is set to get underway at 15:20 BST.
