West Surrey Racing's Sam Tordoff sets the pace in the second and final British Touring Car Championship practice running as BMW looked to have gained the march ahead of qualifying later this afternoon.

Tordoff's three-time world champion team mate Andy Priaulx was the man who led most of the running but the Oulton Park race winner came up with a lap out of the blue which bettered Priaulx's effort by well over five-tenths.

Priaulx eventually tumbled further to third as the ever present Tom Ingram posted yet another impressive late 1 minute 24 lap in second position to add to his FP1 exploits.
