Hill wins Race 3 at Knockhill

1 Mins read

Jake Hill won the final race of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at Knockhill in his Trade Price Cars Racing Audi.

Hill, who was using the softer tyres and only 6kg of ballast, controlled the pace throughout the 27 laps despite two safety car interruptions.

The first safety car was caused when seventh-placed starter Senna Proctor spun his Subaru inro the path of the previous winner Andrew Jordan, which took the WSR BMW driver into the gravel and a spectator of the event.

Hill stretched out the gap between him and Josh Cook after the restart and pulled out almost one second until a second safety car was called when a loose wheel from Mike Bushell’s AmDTuning Honda ended up on the track.

A single lap behind the safety car and Hill powered clear, but despite a wobble on the final lap coming out of the chicane, he held on to take the win.

Meanwhile, Adam Morgan forced his Mercedes inside Jason Plato’s Vauxhall to grad a podium finish watching Plato fall down the order as Smiley, Ingram, Cammish, and Chilton all got ahead of the Vauxhall.

Turkington had started nineteenth after dramas in race two but fought his way up the order to finish tenth meaning that his grip maintains at the top of the points but is only 10 marks ahead.

Cammish is now 11 points off the summit in his Honda with six races remaining.
