WIX Racing's Jack Goff translates his impressive practice form into his second British Touring Car Championship pole position of the season, as Honda machinery dominate the qualifying order at Snetterton.

Having topped the previous FP2 session, Goff maintained that momentum to claim pole position at Snetterton for the second year in a row after breaking the existing pole record, previously set by Gordon Shedden in 2016, with a 1 minute 55.556s lap.

Top factory Honda effort Dan Cammish joins Goff on the front row after setting the second fastest time.

The BTCC rookie had led the vast majority of the 30-minute shootout after setting a blistering lap early in the session. However, Cammish admitted in making a small error on his final lap, which ultimately cost the Team Dynamics driver a shot at pole.

Matt Simpson and Brett Smith completed the second row in third and fourth, ensuring all three Eurotech prepared Civic Type-Rs help complete an all Honda top-four lockout.

Despite carrying 66 kilos of success ballast, Tom Ingram proved to be the fastest non-Honda runner after setting a mighty lap to dip under the 1 minute 56 barrier in fifth.

Josh Cook joins the Speedworks Motorsport prepared Toyota Avensis on the third row in sixth.

HMS Racing's Rob Austin posted the Alfa Romeo Giulietta's qualifying in seventh, while Sam Tordoff, Ashley Sutton and Tom Oliphant complete the remainder of the top-ten in eighth, ninth and tenth.

Meanwhile, Team BMW's Colin Turkington will have to defend his championship lead from 15th after struggling to make an impression in qualifying while carrying maximum success ballast.
