BUTCHER INHERITS WIN AFTER COOK EXCLUSION

BTC Racing’s Josh Cook looked to have claimed his first Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship victory of the season in the opening contest at Oulton Park, but he was subsequently excluded from the result after his car failed post-race ride height checks, meaning pole-sitter Rory Butcher inherited the victory. A pre-race downpour and a delayed start – following an off for Carl Boardley’s BMW on the initial green flag laps – added to the tension, as Cook made a poor getaway from the outside of the front row. Cook’s Honda Civic Type R suffered with wheelspin off the line and he was immediately passed by both Team BMWs of Colin Turkington and Tom Oliphant, as well as Halfords Yuasa Racing’s Dan Cammish. It was all change after the race, however, as Cook was excluded from the result following a ride height infringement during post-race checks. A total of four cars failed to make the finish, most notably Matt Neal on his 699th BTCC race start. 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship – Race 1 – Oulton Park.
