Reigning British Touring Car Championship Ash Sutton has taken his second win of the day during another rain-soaked Knockhill race to provisionally move within 15-points of the championship lead.

Sutton led every lap of the red flag shortened second encounter, but his win may yet come under threat after television images appeared to show his Subaru Levorg failing the obligatory post-race ride height check.

Ingram's Toyota Avensis also appeared to fail the ride height check.

As it stands, Sutton has won the 23rd round of the championship ahead of Tom Ingram and Andrew Jordan, although that result may be subject to change.

While leading every lap of the race, Sutton had to contend with two lengthy safety car periods as the marshals worked to recover the stricken cars of Ollie Jackson and Sam Smelt.

A further shunt involving AmD's Sam Smelt during the beginning of the 20th lap ultimately brought the race to an early conclusion.

While Sutton's position remained unchallenged at the head of the field, Ingram crucially managed to nose his way past the Pirtek Racing BMW of Jordan on lap 20, before the race was halted.

Just off the podium, Power Maxed TAG Racing's Josh Cook backed up his fifth place finish from race one with another impressive drive to fourth in the second encounter.

Cook executed a forceful move on points leader Turkington towards the end of the race at the final hairpin. During the exchange, Honda's Dan Cammish also managed to elevate his Type-R ahead of the BMW to move into the top-five.

Adam Morgan was seventh aboard his Mac Tools Racing Mercedes A-Class, while Tom Chilton, Rory Butcher and Jack Goff completed the remainder of the top-ten order.
