Team BMW's Colin Turkington has moved back into the British Touring Car Championship lead after taking his second victory of the day ahead of Toyota's Tom Ingram at Snetterton.

The reigning four-time champion arrived into the penultimate weekend of the season trailing Ash Sutton by 12-points in the BTCC title race. However, as it stands, Turkington boasts a 7-point lead over Sutton in the championship standings, with four races left to play.

Turkington replicated his race one win by taking a fifth victory of the season in race two, while Toyota Gazoo Racing UK driver Ingram and Laser Tools Racing's Sutton completed the podium order in second and third.

Sutton took advantage of a late safety car period to minimise the points deficit to Turkington by snatching a podium finish in third.

A heavy shunt for Team HARD's Jack Goff brought out the safety car towards the end of the race and Sutton was able to move into third at the expense of Motorbase Performance's Rory Butcher.

Butcher made a play for Ingram's second position on the final lap of the race, but ultimately fell behind Sutton and out of the podium placings.

MB Motorsport's Jake Hill ended a frenetic final lap in fifth, ahead of title contender Dan Cammish in sixth. Like Butcher, Cammish also lost out when trying to make a place up the order after the Honda driver made contact with the Motorbase Performance Ford Focus.

BTC Racing's Josh Cook was seventh, while Ollie Jackson, Adam Morgan and Chris Smiley completed the remainder of the top-ten order.
