BTCC Oulton Park – Proctor secures second BTCC win with dominant race

Senna Proctor secured his second BTCC race win and his first since 2018 in the third and final race at Oulton Park.

He led from the start despite making contact with Ash Sutton on lap one, and secured the win as a red flag on lap ten ended the race early.

Before the race, the WSR team pulled off a miracle by getting Tom Oliphant’s BMW out for the third race following his huge shunt in race one.

Pole sitter Proctor made a good start and held off Ash Sutton into turn one, however the reigning champion had the inside line for turn two and took the lead.

Further back Sam Osborne was tipped into a spin by Chris Smiley and he caused chaos, collecting Jack Butel and Jade Edwards, as well as sending a few other cars off who were attempting to avoid incident. This brought out a red flag.

On the restart Proctor again made a good start and held off Sutton, before Sutton made a move around the outside at Cascades, and contact was unavoidable. Sutton spun, and was collected by his team mate Carl Boardley and he spun out.

Thankfully for Sutton, championship rival Tom Ingram had more woes, pitting on lap one and ending the race pointless.

In a somewhat less action packed race than the previous two, Proctor pulled out an impressive lead before the race was ended early due to a collision on lap nine between Boardley and race two winner Rory Butcher.

Stephen Jelley finished 2nd with Shedden 3rd, Moffat, Morgan, Rowbottom, Hill, Turkington, Chilton and Smiley rounded off the top ten.
