Triple Eight Racing's Andrew Jordan has narrowly beaten Tom Ingram to the FP2 honours at Rockingham by just 0.009's ahead of qualifying for round 22 of the British Touring Car Championship.

Unlike the morning's earlier running, track conditions were much more favourable for the BTCC field with the remainder of the damp patches being burnt away before the session started.

Whilst the conditions had slightly changed, one theme of familiarity continued with the Toyota Avensis of Ingram continuing to feature at the top of the times.

The whereabouts of the top-spot had originally see-sawed between Jordan and his MG team mate Jack Goff but Ingram once threw his hat into the mix during the final third of the session.

But as the field settled into the final runs of free-practice, Jordan unleashed a 1 minute 22.553 second lap, which narrowly denied Ingram a practice clean sweep by 0.009's second.

Lurking just behind in third position, championship leader Jason Plato wasn't far from launching himself to the top after the Team BMR driver's time fell just 0.049's short of Jordan's effort.

A late effort from the second MG6 GT of Goff elevated the Snetterton winner into fourth, also within 0.062's of his team mates practice topping pace.

Power Maxed Racing's Josh Cook maintained Chevrolet's presence within the upper echelons of the order in fifth position ahead of Gordon Shedden's Honda Civic Type-R in sixth.

Cook's Chevrolet team mate Dave Newsham split the two Team BMR Volkswagen CC's of Aron Smith and Colin Turkington in eighth while Mat Jackson completed the top-ten for Motorbase Performance.
