Snetterton: Morgan leads Sutton in second practice

WIX Racing's Adam Morgan goes into qualifying for tomorrow's first BTCC race as the favourite to take pole position after setting the pace in FP2 at Snetterton.
WIX Racing's Adam Morgan has emerged from the final British Touring Car Championship practice as a leading candidate for pole position after leading the FP2 running ahead of MG's Ashley Sutton at Snetterton.

There had been a brief downpour between the first and second practice session but that didn't stop the times tumbling ever closer to Colin Turkington's pole position record from last season.

Morgan, who ended the first session in fifth, came within just over 0.1s of Turkington's record after producing a 1 minute 56.139 second lap during the final third of the running.

The Mercedes A-Class runner's time put him over two-tenths clear of Sutton in second, who in turn was a further tenth quicker than BKR's Aron Smith in third.

As we've become accustomed to, Speedworks Motorsport's Tom Ingram remains a prominent feature in fourth position ahead of FP1 pacesetter Colin Turkington in fifth.

Championship leader Sam Tordoff was sixth fastest for West Surrey Racing, again ending the session as the fastest BMW 125i M Sport runner. Neither of his WSR team mates Rob Collard and Jack Goff made the top-ten.

Laser Tools Racing's Aiden Moffat was another to impress in seventh while Hunter Abbott continues his run of promising pace in eighth.

Honda's Gordon Shedden recovered from his early engine change to set the eighth fastest time as Motorbase Performance's Andrew Jordan completed the remainder of the top-ten.
