Honda driver Dan Cammish will go into qualifying for tomorrow's opening British Touring Car Championship race as the driver to beat after pipping BMW's Andrew Jordan to the top-spot in FP2 at Croft.

Jordan had set the fastest time during FP1 aboard his BMW 330i M Sport machine, but was forced to play second fiddle to Cammish in FP2 after the Team Dynamics driver produced a lap time almost two-seconds faster than the existing track record.

With the BTCC coming to Croft for the first time since the track was resurfaced following their visit last season, Colin Turkington's pole position record [1'23.242s], which was set during the 2014 season, looks set to be obliterated come qualifying.

Cammish ended the second 40-minute with a 1'21.496s lap, just under 1.8s faster than Turkington's pole position time from the 2014 season.

In fact, everyone down to Daniel Rowbottom in 23rd position, dipped below the existing track record.

Joint championship-leader Turkington completed the top-three practice order behind his West Surrey Racing team mate Jordan in third position, while Sam Tordoff was next best placed FWD car behind Cammish in fourth.

Power Maxed Racing's Jason Plato was a strong fifth, with Honda's Matt Neal leading BMW duo Stephen Jelley and Tom Oliphant in sixth, seventh and eighth.

Having set the second fastest time in FP1, 2017 BTCC champion Ashley Sutton slipped down the order to ninth in FP2, ahead of the current championship co-leader Rory Butcher in tenth.
