BTCC drivers excited ahead of media launch

MGs top and tail shortened practice

Sam Tordoff set the fastest time in this afternoon's second free practice session ahead of this weekend's Dunlop British Touring Car Championship races at Croft in North Yorkshire.

The local driver lapped in 1:24.115, nearly half a second faster than the best time from this morning's first practice, to end the session ahead of Andrew Jordan and Adam Morgan.

Jordan set his time of 1:24.390 early on and held a gap of three quarters of a second for much of the first half of the session, until Colin Turkington got within five tenths just before the halfway point.

With around 15 minutes to go, Tordoff beat Jordan's time, before Morgan jumped ahead of Turkington in third.
