Daniel Lloyd assumed the role of ‘Prince of Croft’ as he added another BTCC race win doubling up at the only track that the Huddersfield driver has won at during his time in the championship. This in a one-two with team-mate Tom Ingram for Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8

Lloyd led from the front in Race Two including through a safety car period which saw James ‘Jiggy’ Gornall who had a good start to the weekend unravel and go into the barrier after Clervaux. It was his teammate who was doing the main attacking with Ingram dispatching Dan Rowbottom before setting his sights on Colin Turkington.

He took the scalp of his fellow Drivers’ Championship contender into second with Turkington holding the final podium spot to do as he usually does in terms of banking big points to keep the momentum up.

Finishing ahead of his teammate, Jake Hill and Rowbottom with Ash Sutton again banking good points ahead of Rory Butcher in sixth and seventh. Tom Chilton secured a second successive top ten finish behind Aiden Moffat with Stephen Jelley and Josh Cook finishing inside the top 11.

But it was the display of Gordon Shedden which gained acclaim with the Honda surging from the back to P12 and he was rewarded with reverse grid pole.
