Rory Butcher made it two wins out of two at Silverstone after holding off a final lap Josh Cook charge.

Butcher started well from pole staying comfortably ahead of Tom Ingram and Cook.

Cook jumped up to third ahead of Aiden Moffat and Colin Turkington.

The Safety Car was brought out on lap 3 to clear Nic Hamilton’s car at Becketts.

Butcher was able to stay in front of Ingram but it was Cook who made a move on the Hyundai driver and both of them battled side-by-side for over half-a-lap before Ingram was able to stay ahead going into Becketts.

The Safety Car was then brought out for the second time to clear the cars of Carl Boardley and Jade Edwards after both drivers had separate incidents.

Butcher again restarted well, opening up a gap to Ingram and Cook behind.

Once again Ingram and Cook fought a hard battle on track but this time Cook was able to take the place from Hyundai.

Ingram was clearly struggling for pace and did a very good job of keeping the train of Moffat, Turkington and Sutton behind.

But at the front it was Cook who made strong move on Butcher on the final lap at Brooklands but braked too late and went wide giving Butcher a clear run to the line to take his second victory of the day.

Ingram hung onto the final podium place just ahead of Turkington and Sutton.

Moffat finished the race sixth ahead of Dan Rowbottom and Chris Smiley with Stephen Jelley and Jake Hill rounding out the top 10.
