Cammish fastest in Snetterton BTCC opening practice

Saturday, August 03 2019

Dan Cammish topped the opening free practice session of the Snetterton Kwik Fit Britsh Touring Car Championship weekend after lapping the full 300 circuit in 1m55.478s in his Halfords Yuasa Racing Honda Civic Type R. 

Cammish topped the session by just 0.029s from Matt Simpson in his privately run, older-spec Civic Type R, with Tom Ingram just a further thousandth of a second behind in the sole factory-backed Toyota Corolla. 

Andrew Jordan was the leading BMW runner, going fourth fastest in the 330i M Sport, just ahead of Vauxhall Astra driver Rob Collard who completed the top-five. Jordan's BMW stablemates wound up a little further down the order, with Tom Oliphant in eighth and championship leader Colin Turkington down in 15th, but you can expect to see those machines further up the order as the weeknd progresses after a dominant season so far.

Of the championship's other notable protagonists, the old rivals Jason Plato and Matt Neal were sixth and seventh fastest respectively, with the former's Vauxhall just edging out the latter's Honda.

Jake Hill was ninth as he aims to back bounce back from being stripped of a maiden victory last time out at Oulton Park, whilst Tom Chilton completed the top-ten after recently topping the championship's in-season tyre test at the same venue.
