Jake Hill has returned to the top step of the podium and also firmly into the BTCC (British Touring Car Championship) Drivers’ Championship hunt after claiming Race Two at Croft on Sunday afternoon.
Hill started second behind Aiden Moffat who claimed the opening race of the day but made the most of his opportunity behind the maximum success ballast laden Infiniti Q50 with Complex being the turning point as the MB Motorsport driver produced a fantastic move to surge into the lead.
He went off into the distance from there leaving Moffat to fight it out with Josh Cook for second and third and despite a mid-race hit from the BTC Racing Honda and the success ballast, he finished second.
A domino effect saw Colin Turkington come out worse off as an incident then occurred with Gordon Shedden but the duo were pulled out first and second in the reverse grid with Ash Sutton who gained from that sat fifth at the end after battling with Tom Ingram.
Behind the aforementioned drivers were BTC Racing’s Senna Proctor, Car Gods with Ciceley Motorsport’s Adam Morgan and Team BMW’s Stephen Jelley who rounded out the top ten.
