BTCC Race 3: Proctor claims final Oulton Park win

Sunday, August 01 2021

Senna Proctor claimed a second career Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship victory in the final race of the day on the Oulton Park Island circuit this afternoon.

It was a dramatic race from the off, with the red flag called for on the opening lap following an accident involving Sam Osborne, Jack Mitchell, Jade Edwards, Jack Butel and several others as the pack filed down to Cascades for the first time.

Ashley Sutton had initially taken the lead from the outside of the front row, but the stoppage gave Proctor another chance to convert his pole into a race lead.

Second time around, there was more drama as Sutton and Proctor ran side-by-side through Old Hall. The duo touched and, whilst Proctor was able to maintain the lead, reigning champion Sutton slid down the order.

Things went from bad to worse just moments later for Sutton as contact with Laser Tools Racing teammate Carl Boardley brought his running for the day to a close. This left Proctor to control the race from the front, with Stephen Jelley unable to catch and pass his rival despite enjoying the strongest day of any of Team BMW's drivers.

The race came to a premature conclusion, with Proctor declared winner after eight laps, when Boardley went off at Druids, collecting Rory Butcher's Toyota in the process.

Scotsman Gordon Shedden completed the podium as the Halfords Racing with Cataclean star enjoyed his most promising weekend of the season so far. Aiden Moffat in fourth was another driver from north of the border in fine form, collecting three top-six finishes throughout the day.

Adam Morgan and Daniel Rowbottom finshed fifth and sixth respectively, both ending excellent weekends with a third strong result.

Jake Hill, Colin Turkington, Tom Chilton and Chris Smiley completed the top-ten.
