Oliphant tops BMW 1-2-3 in BTCC FP2 at Brands Hatch

Saturday, April 06 2019

Tom Oliphant topped the timesheets as the new Team BMW 3 Series swept the top-three in the second free practice session of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship season at Brands Hatch this afternoon (Saturday).

Andrew Jordan followed up his session-topping first practice performance to go second fastest in his BMW Pirtek Racing 330i M Sport, whilst reigning champion Colin Turkington was third fastest in the second Team BMW machine.

The BMW's climbed to the top at the end of a session which was interrupted following an off for Aiden Moffat at Paddock Hill Bend. 

Ever present towards the top of the standings throughout the session was Jason Plato, and the veteran two-timew champion ended proceedings in fourth ahead of his racing return to Vauxhall tomorrow.

The local Motorbase Performance team placed two cars in the top ten in the practice period, with Tom Chilton in fifth and Ollie Jackson in ninth, whilst Kent's Jake Hill went seventh in his Audi S3. 

The new Toyota Corolla finished well for a second session in succession too, with last year's championship runner-up Tom Ingram setting the sixth fastest time.  

BTCC qualifying is scheduled for 15:10 this afternoon.
