Oulton Park: Ingram completes Oulton Park practice domination

Just as the Speedworks Motorsport driver achieved in FP1, Tom Ingram sets the pace during the second and final practice before qualifying at Oulton Park.
Speedworks Motorsport's Tom Ingram picks up from where left off in FP1 to complete an impressive British Touring Car Championship practice clean sweep after demoting Gordon Shedden late in the second Oulton Park session.

As was the case in FP1, Ingram made his move late in proceedings having spent the majority of the 40-minute session on the fringes of the top-ten.

Ingram's first attempt during his final run had already catapulted his Toyota Avensis firmly into the top-three but the Speedworks driver went even quicker during his following effort - trumping Shedden by 0.065s with a 1 minute 25.858 second lap.

Despite Ingram topping the session, it was Honda's reigning champion was the first man to break the 1 minute 26 barrier after he displaced FP2's long-term pacesetter Aron Smith.

BKR's Smith remained in third behind the Honda Civic Type-R of Shedden but ahead of MG's Josh Cook and WSR's Jack Goff and Sam Tordoff in fourth, fifth and sixth.

At long last, Jason Plato made a welcome return to the top-ten after what has been difficult start to his tenure with Subaru. The double champion ended the session in seventh, marginally ahead of his fellow BMR runner Colin Turkington in eighth.

Triple Eight MG's Ashley Sutton and Handy Motorsport's Rob Austin completed the top-ten.
