BTCC Thruxton 2024
HILL AND SUTTON SHARE THE SPOILS IN HAMPSHIRE The Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship held rounds 10, 11 and 12 of the 2024 season at the ultra-fast Thruxton circuit in Hampshire on the 8th and 9th of June. 2022 champion Tom Ingram came through the new-for-2024 qualifying elimination system to secure pole position by 0.265 seconds from the Napa Racing UK Ford of Dan Cammish. Jake Hill made a lightning start to Race One from the second row to bolt into the lead by Allard and survived a Safety Car restart to lead all the way to win by 1.216 seconds from Cammish. Polesitter Ingram fluffed his start from pole with a welter of wheelspin and was outdragged by the Napa Fords of Cammish, Dan Rowbottom and Ash Sutton. Both Sutton and Ingram got by Rowbottom during the opening lap to take third and fourth places, with the championship leader having to get his elbows out to stop Ingram passing him too. Hill’s BMW aced the start of Race Two to lead the way early on but wasn’t able to escape this time. Sutton led the chase initially but the man on the move was Ingram. The Hyundai had taken the short route at the chicane to complete a pass of Cammish at the end of lap one and when Sutton started to lose pace when his splitter was damaged in a brush with the leading BMW, Ingram breezed past up Woodham Hill on lap five. It didn’t take the Hyundai long to latch onto Hill and the ‘race-winning’ pass came exiting Church on lap eight, with Ingram escaping to his 30th BTCC victory on-the-road. However, post-race Ingram was docked two spots for his opening lap shortcut and gifted the win to new championship leader Hill from Cammish. Ball number eight was drawn to set the reversed grid positions for Race Three and an all-BMW front row headed the grid. Poleman Adam Morgan held sway in the early stages from Josh Cook before Sutton came through on the ninth lap at the Complex to take his first victory of 2024 and regain his place at the top of the title race. Napa Ford stablemate Cammish took his third podium of the day in second from Ingram, who copped a whack from Morgan as the Hyundai boldly drove around the outside of the BMW into the chicane for the penultimate time. The BTCC now moves onto Oulton Park over the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd of June, with Sutton nursing a five-point lead from Hill in the championship standings. The Mini 7 Racing Club provided frenetic support race action with their Se7en and Miglia challenges. The results show that Mike Jordan and son Andrew Jordan each took two overall wins in the Se7ens and Miglias respectively but the slipstream effect made each of their victories anything but easy. Both produced startling opening laps to Race Two as Mike went from starting seventh to take the Se7ens lead into the chicane, with Andrew doing the same in the Miglias from thirteenth!
