Dan Cammish heads Matt Neal for Honda 1-2 in second Silverstone practice

Halfords Yuasa Racing’s Dan Cammish headed team-mate Matt Neal to top the timesheets for a Honda 1-2 in the second British Touring Car Championship practice session at Silverstone.

Thruxton polesitter Cammish carried forward his strong Saturday form to better his team-mate’s time by 0.088s, with Neal previously topping the charts after trading fastest laps with practice one pacesetter Ash Sutton.

Ultimately Cammish’s time of 57.400s on his 20th tour of the 1.6-mile National layout was the benchmark, going almost exactly a tenth quicker than Sutton’s time this morning.

The current standings leader would place behind the Team Dynamics duo at the conclusion of the 40-minute session, just over a tenth-and-a-half adrift of the best time in his Infiniti Q50.

Double Thruxton race winner Tom Ingram, who placed second in the opening session earlier today, managed fourth in his Toyota Gazoo Racing UK Corolla, ahead of Josh Cook who made it three FK8 Honda Civics in the top five in the best of the BTC Racing entries.

Ciceley Motorsport’s Adam Morgan enjoyed a late improvement in the session to go sixth fastest, while a competitive showing from Stephen Jelley put him best of the BMWs in his Team Parker Racing 125i M Sport.

He placed just 0.018s ahead of Tom Oliphant in the newer 3 Series BMW, who in turn was just seven thousandths ahead of James Gornall’s Audi S3, while reigning champion Colin Turkington was only five-thousandths-of-a-second further behind to complete the top ten runners.

The tight margins on the fringes of the top ten continued with Rory Butcher only 0.031s adrift of Turkington in 11th in his Motorbase Performance Ford Focus ST, with Sam Osborne’s MB Motorsport Honda Civic just behind him in 12th.

Laser Tools Racing’s Aiden Moffat placed 13th in the second of the Infiniti Q50s, while Jake Hill was remarkably the first runner with a time over half a second adrift of Cammish’s pace-setting time in 14th ahead of Tom Chilton.

In similar fashion to the opening session, the top 25 runners were separated by under a second, with a typically tight qualifying session expected this afternoon at 15:10 BST.
