Honda's Dan Cammish will go into qualifying as the driver to beat after setting the fastest time during the second British Touring Car Championship practice session at Thruxton.

With the second 40-minute session beginning with superior track conditions to that of the first, Cammish's best lap proved to be one second faster than Ashley Sutton's best effort set during the morning session.

Whilst setting the pace ahead of fellow Honda driver Rory Butcher in FP2, Cammish's 1 minute 15.589s lap was also good enough to beat his team mate Matt Neal's pole position lap record from last season by just under 0.1s.

Having gone quickest in FP1, BMW Pirtek Racing's Andrew Jordan remains a strong candidate for pole position after setting the third fastest time ahead of reigning champion and team mate Colin Turkington in fourth.

Just behind Turkington's BMW 330i M Sport, Thruxton specialist Adam Morgan saw his session cut short after suffering an off at Church corner during the final quarter. Nevertheless, the Mac Tools Racing driver still ended the running in fifth, ahead of Simpson Racing's Matt Simpson in sixth.

Jake Hill once again nestled his Audi S3 firmly into the top-ten with the seventh quickest time, while Tom Oliphant ensured all three West Surrey Racing BMWs were represented in the top-ten in eighth.

Two-time champion Jason Plato was ninth quickest aboard his Power Maxed Racing Vauxhall Astra, marginally ahead of Honda's Matt Neal, who completed the remainder of the top-ten order in tenth.
