Colin Turkington storms through to take victory in race two.
Race two of the day got underway under a gloomy sky. Laser Tools Racing’s Aiden Moffat got a good start from pole position with Speedworks Motorsport’s Tom Ingram in second. Team Shredded Wheat Racing with Duo’s Mat Jackson managed to out drag Adrian Flux Subaru Racing’s Ashley Sutton to snatch third. The two Power Maxed Racing Vauxhall’s also managed to pass the Subaru racer on the opening lap.
Outfront, Ingram was piling on the pressure on Aiden Moffat but the Scot stayed ahead.
By lap five Sutton had dropped to sixth after Halfords Yuasa Racing’s Gordon Shedden passed him. His championship opponent Turkington was flying and made a move on Dave Newsham to take ninth. The following lap Mat Jackson made a pass on Tom Ingram to take second.
By lap 7 Turkington was on the bumper of Sutton. Turkington made his move to pass Sutton on the following lap to take seventh at Druids with Austin following him through.
On lap ten, Turkington took fifth away from Matt Neal whilst Shedden moved into third after overtaking Ingram. The following lap saw Turkington manage to pass Shedden for third.
Lap thirteen and Turkington was leading the race after a very robust move on long time leader Moffat (Turkington was subsequently fined over this move) whilst Sutton was falling down the order to twelfth.
As the flag fell, Turkington took the win and reignited the title fight, espcially with Sutton so far down the finishing order. With Ingram finishing P6 he was crowned Independent Drivers’ Champion with one race to spare.
