Excelr8 Motorsport Hyundai driver Tom Ingram took a sensational fourth British Touring Car Championship race victory of the season after charging from 11th to 1st in race two at Donington Park.

Ingram struggled with running success ballast during the opening race and finished in 11th as a consequence, but reaped the benefits of not running any weight during race two and produced a magnificent performance to keep his BTCC title hopes alive.

Having already made up five positions on the opening lap, Ingram gained virtually a place per lap as he scythed his way to the rear of Gordon Shedden's race leading Team Dynamics Honda by the end of lap 9.

Ingram wasted no time in moving ahead of the three-time champion into a lead he would never relinquish just one lap later.

Despite running 75 kilos of ballast, Shedden didn't fall too far behind Ingram, but ultimately didn't have an answer to the Excelr8 run Hyundai's searing pace.

Ingram now sits in a clear second behind championship leader Ash Sutton after Team BMW's Colin Turkington made a highly uncharacteristic error by spinning out of podium contention on lap 13.

Turkington's spin swung the pendulum back in Sutton's favour after the Laser Tools Racing driver strengthened his title credentials in fourth behind Toyota Gazoo Racing's Rory Butcher in third.

At one point, Turkington looked set to make a sizeable dent in Sutton's points lead with the Infiniti falling as low as tenth. However, Turkington's spin immediately elevated Sutton from seventh to fourth.

Turkington eventually recovered to eleventh and, amazingly, keeps his faint title hopes alive after being picked to start race three from pole position in the reverse grid draw.

Power Maxed Racing's Dan Lloyd scored another strong finish in fifth ahead of BTC Racing duo Senna Proctor and Josh Cook in sixth and seventh.

Aiden Moffat, Jake Hill and Dan Rowbottom completed the remainder of the top-ten in eighth, ninth and tenth.
