Tom Ingram drove a masterful race in the second Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race at Silverstone as he scored maximum points from fourteenth on the grid.

With no ballast onboard his Speedworks Motorsport Toyota Avensis, Tom gained the extra point for fastest lap and furthermore the extra point for leading the race. This was an excellent drive in regards to closing the gap to Colin Turkington at the top of the drivers championship.

Second went the way of Adam Morgan who also had a storming drive from sixth on the grid. Third went to Sam Tordoff who drove well despite the fact he had maximum ballast onboard his Ford Focus RS.

It was a miserable race for Ashley Sutton who had to have a floor change when it got damaged after being dropped onto an object before the cars lined up on the grid. He trundled around the rear of the field to finish twenty-seventh.

Ricky Collard continued his great weekend with fourth, Matt Simpson finished a great fifth and Jack Goff took sixth.

Aiden Moffat continued his renaissance with seventh ahead of Colin Turkington who made the best of a bad situation with the unfavoured tyres.

Rob Austin went well to take his Alfa Romeo to ninth ahead of Senna Proctor in tenth.

Further down the field, Matt Neal, Dan Cammish and Rory Butcher had a ding-dong battle for the final points paying positions. However, the Scotsman was the disappointed member of this party as he eventually finished in sixteenth behind the Halfords Yuasa Racing duo.

The Team Parker Racing BMW of Stephen Jelley continued its bad luck form when he was taken out by Brett Smith at Copse.

Andrew Jordan also had a tough race to twenty-second. Most assumed he would work his way through the field. But, it seemed the gremlins from the first race was still somewhere within the car.
