SNETTERTON RECAP: ROUND FIVE
SUTTON’S SURGE TO VICTORY
Ash Sutton surged from 11th on the grid to win Round 5 of the 2021 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at Snetterton, as the Laser Tools Racing star produced a stunning drive. Here’s your recap to look back over an entertaining race two from Norfolk.
The reigning champion made pass after pass in his striking #1 Infiniti Q50 and his impressive performance was confirmed when a late overtake on race-long leader Colin Turkington clinched his second victory of the campaign.
Team BMW’s Turkington had to settle for second – following on from his earlier race one success – which still represented a good result in his ballast-laden 3 Series.
The final place on the podium went to MB Motorsport accelerated by Blue Square’s Ollie Jackson after he came out on top of a fantastic battle with the Ginsters-backed Hyundai of Tom Ingram.
Jackson looked to have lost out when Ingram nipped past late on, but the two-time race-winner would not be denied as he fought back to repass in the closing stages.
Rory Butcher backed up his earlier podium with a solid fifth-place finish in the second encounter, and was followed by a trio of BMWs in the shape of Tom Oliphant, Stephen Jelley and Adam Morgan.
The Team HARD CUPRA of Jack Goff was ninth with Laser Tools Racing’s Aiden Moffat completing the top ten order.
