Jake Hill topped the final practice running of the 2020 BTCC season in greasy conditions ahead of title contender Ash Sutton.

Instead of the usual two session practice format, the 27-car field took part in a solitary one-hour session, in place of the traditional pair of 40-minute sessions.

Sutton emerged as the fastest title contender ahead of qualifying, with championship leader Colin Turkington ending practice 14th fastest, while Dan Cammish was third. Tom Ingram and Rory Butcher were fifth and sixth.
