Ash Sutton wins 2020 BTCC title at Brands Hatch

Sunday, November 15 2020

Laser Tools Racing's Ash Sutton is a two-time Kwik Fit British Touring Car Champion after clinching the title in the final race of a dramatic season at Brands Hatch.

Motorbase Performance's Rory Butcher won the contest with Toyota's Tom Ingram and MB Motorsport accelerated by Blue Square's Jake Hill completing the podium, but the title race was understandably the headline story as Sutton got the better of his Team BMW rival Colin Turkington.

Turkington made steady progress early on but the BMW 3 Series has seemingly struggled in the wet conditions for much of the day, and Sutton was soon on his tail in a fight for sixth. Sutton sat comfortably behind the reigning champ but Turkington couldn't keep the Infiniti Q50 at bay, and the #116 slipped through at Paddock Hill Bend in the closing stages.

Halfords Yuasa Racing's Dan Cammish was fourth in the race - consolidating his third position in the overall standings - whilst Carlube TripleR Racing with Mac Tools' Adam Morgan grabbed a hard-earned fifth.

Sutton took sixth - and with it the title - after a late move by his good friend Josh Cook in the BTC Racing Honda Civic Type R.

Laser Tools Racing enjoyed a double celebration with Aiden Moffat claiming eighth, as the team also wrapped up Independents' glory.

Turkington could only manage ninth as his title defence ended on a rather soggy note around the undulating 1.2-mile Indy circuit, whilst Motorbase man Ollie Jackson rounded out the top ten.
