Speedworks Motorsport's Tom Ingram comes to the fore ahead of this afternoon's British Touring Car Championship qualifying after outpacing Andrew Jordan during the second practice session at Thruxton.
The Brands Hatch winner stamped his authority early in the session, having unleashed a 1 minute 16.542 second lap, immediately trumping Jordan's FP1 effort by around 0.3's.
Ingram's Toyota Avensis ultimately ended what was a largely incident free practice - save for Chris Smiley's brief stoppage halfway through the running - over 0.5's clear of the Motorbase Ford of Jordan in second.
While Ingram settled into a series of consistent runs, it was Laser Tools Racing's Aiden Moffat who grabbed everyone's attention late on.
The young Scotsman propelled his Mercedes A-Class up into third position late in the session despite having his best lap compromised by a West Surrey Racing BMW.
Just 0.043's separated the times of Moffat, Jack Goff and MG's Ashley Sutton in third, fourth and fifth.
Behind that trio came WIX Racing's Adam Morgan in sixth. Morgan's FP1 running had come to an abrupt halt when last year's Thruxton winner plunged his Mercedes A-Class into the tyres at Allard corner, before recovering his pace with the sixth quickest time in FP2.
Last year's Thruxton pole-sitter Aron Smith was seventh aboard the BKR Volkswagen CC as Rob Austin, Jeff Smith and Mat Jackson completed the top-ten order.
Subaru Team BMR's Colin Turkington was unable to repeat his FP1 heroics but still ended the session as the quickest Levorg having amassed important race mileage ahead of tomorrow's triple header.
