Colin Turkington triumphs at Croft as Tom Ingram slashes gap to championship leader Ash Sutton

Colin Turkington led from start to finish in what was a hectic reverse grid race for Team BMW at Croft.

Despite everything that happened behind Turkington his race was all down to the start and a restart. Once the #4 car kept Tom Ingram behind the gap was there to manage to the line.

Ingram will not be disappointed with his race three. After what looked like it could be a bleak weekend, it all changed at the chicane on lap one. Championship leader Ash Sutton had a front left puncture and subsequent damage that meant he had to retire from the race.

This meant that what looked like it may be a dramatic point swing in one direction it completely pivoted come the end of the day. Joining Ingram on the podium was Josh Cook who has been there or thereabouts all day.

Behind was race one winner and pole sitter Dan Cammish. Cammish has had a very strong weekend after a win, a second place and now a fourth place finish. That and his teammates retirement might just have brought him back into the conversation for the championship.

Next on the road was NAPA Racing UK teammate Dan Rowbottom. The #32 car only losing a position to his teammate. A promising weekend for Rowbottom who took away two podiums and a fifth place finish.

In sixth was the sublime drive of Aiden Moffat. The One Motorsport driver started from 17th on the soft tyres. All drivers ahead at the line were on hard tyres. After a huge gain on lap one after multiple retirements Moffat’s eyes were only forward for the rest of the race.

Jake Hill came home in seventh place in what can only be described as a forgettable weekend. After a spin in race two only a clean race three would have helped. This was not the case as the now fifth place in the standings driver span once again chasing Rowbottom.

In Eighth place was Rory Butcher. The Toyota Gazoo Racing driver having a much similar fate to Moffat instead on the medium tyres. Butcher started in 18th place and also gained massively after the opening lap collisions.

Árón Taylor-Smith came home in ninth in what was a very successful weekend. The Irishman found himself around the top 10 constantly and this did not change come race three. After starting 12th and on hard tyres it can be nothing but a success to finish ninth.

Rounding out the top 10 was George Gamble who was yet another driver who benefited massively from the opening exchanges. After starting 25th the total gain of 15 places is nothing short of a stunning race. Also doing so whilst on the medium tyres.
