Ingram started the second race from 14th on the grid, but the Toyota Avensis driver produced yet another of his miraculous charges through the order to eventually score his third win of the season by over six-seconds ahead of Morgan in second.

The Speedworks Motorsport driver pulled off a series of immaculate manoeuvres, which ultimately saw him snatch the lead away from Motorbase Performance's Sam Tordoff on the 10th lap of the race.

Ingram was able to pounce on the leading runners, who one-by-one appeared to trip over each other throughout the first half of the race.

Once in the lead, Ingram quickly scampered away from Tordoff, who later lost his second position to Mac Tools Racing's Morgan later in the race.

As virtue of his third win of 2018, Ingram has closed the gap to championship leader Colin Turkington to 36-points, after falling 50 behind following the opening race.

Tordoff narrowly managed to retain his spot on the podium in third, ahead of another impressive performance from Team BMW's Ricky Collard in fourth.

Matt Simpson once again completed the top-five order in fifth, with Jack Goff and Aiden Moffat following closely behind in sixth and seventh.

Running the harder option tyre for race two, Team BMW's Colin Turkington was unable to match the scorching pace of his main title rival Ingram, but managed to score vital points in eighth position to protect his championship lead.

Rob Austin salvaged a ninth place finish from the tail end of the grid, while Senna Proctor completed the top-ten for the Power Maxed TAG Racing Vauxhall squad.
