Adrian Flux Subaru Racing’s Ash Sutton took victory in the second British Touring Car Championship race at Brands Hatch in a contest which may well have major title ramifications.
In another rain-affected encounter, erstwhile standings leader Colin Turkington made a lightning start to progress to second from fifth on the grid by the time the pack reached Paddock Hill Bend for the first time.
He was then pitched into a spin by Matt Neal’s Honda a few corners later at Graham Hill Bend, dropping down to the rear of the pack before pitting for slicks under the safety car.
That yellow flag period had been necessitated after a turn one clash between a sideways Jack Goff and Tom Oliphant, with Adam Morgan yet again this season unfortunate to be caught up as the innocent party in an incident.
As one of a handful of runners on the slick tyre, Turkington was unable to progress as the track conditions did not improve rapidly enough, while his WSR stablemate Andrew Jordan progressed to second position late in the race by eclipsing new standings leader Cammish – who completed the podium.
Neal would eventually come home fourth after briefly being passed by old rival Jason Plato, who then had a high-speed half spin at Hawthorns on the final lap whilst pressurising Cammish for third, dropping him to Plato.
Motorbase Performance enjoyed a strong second race on home turf, with Tom Chilton completing the top five ahead of Ollie Jackson.
Plato then was the meat in the Motorbase sandwich ahead of Michael Caine, who secured his best-ever BTCC result in eighth position.
Next was Rory Butcher in his AmD Tuning FK2 Honda Civic in ninth, while Stephen Jelley rounded out the top ten runners in his older BMW 125i M Sport.
He was ahead of Sutton’s team-mate Senna Proctor – who will start the final race of the 2019 championship from reverse-grid pole – finishing ahead of fellow rear-wheel drive racer Aiden Moffat in 12th.
Josh Cook was 13th ahead of a good result for Carl Boardley in 14th while Daniel Rowbottom rounded out the points-paying positions.
The final contest of the 2019 British Touring Car Championship is scheduled to get underway at 17:00 BST.
