Turkington paces second session.

Colin Turkington set the pace for Team RAC in the second HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship at Knockhill, with the BMW man making the most of the dry conditions to set the quickest time of the weekend so far.

Turkington posted a fastest lap of 53.348secs in a session hit by two brief red-flag stoppages to finish ahead of VX Racing's Tom Onslow-Cole, who maintained his solid start to the weekend with the second quickest time – a tenth of a second behind Turkington and just 0.005secs ahead of home racer Gordon Shedden.

Mat Jackson was fourth quickest for the BMW Dealer Team ahead of Tom Chilton and Darren Turner, who had paced the opening session but slipped back to sixth in the first of the diesel SEAT Leons. Matt Neal, Fabrizio Giovanardi, Andy Jordan and Jason Plato rounded out the top ten.

With the entire session being run in the dry, times were much closer than in the first session with the top 15 drivers within a second of each other.

The two stoppages in the session occurred when Micky Doyle went off at Scotsman into the gravel, and when the tyres on the edge of the John R Weir chicane were dislodged onto the circuit. Harry Vaulkhard also suffered an off during the session as he visited the gravel at the Hairpin.
