Tom Ingram at 2016 BTCC Thruxton races

Tom Ingram claimed the second pole position of his BTCC career with a record-breaking lap of Thruxton in the Speedworks Toyota (watch it here). Contact on the first lap of the race shuffled him down the order, but he kept kept in touch with the leaders and grabbed second when a huge crash between Matt Neal and Ash Sutton brought proceedings to a premature end.

Only Motors’ roving BTCC reporter, Lewis Maundrell, got Tom’s thoughts on that first race and what might be possible for the rest of the day.

Unfortunately, it didn’t go so well for Tom: he could only finish 20th in Race 2 after being given a drive-through penalty for jumping the start, and he retired from Race 3 with an alternator belt failure.
