Toyota Avensis driver Tom Ingram took his second Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race win of the season at Donington Park to strengthen his points lead during another strong weekend for the rising stars in the series.
Ingram now leads the championship by seven points from Morgan, with Cook eight points further back.
These are the key takeaways from the second race weekend of the BTCC season.
Cook sizzles in opener
Cook bagged his first BTCC pole position in a wet qualifying session, but showed his pace was no fluke in the dry on Sunday. After briefly losing out to fellow front-row starter Chris Smiley (Honda Civic Type R) on the first lap, Cook reclaimed the lead and pulled clear of the chasing pack.

The win was Cook’s first after five seasons in the BTCC. “It’s a little bit easier starting from the front, that’s for sure,” he said.
The 26-year-old slipped to seventh running with full ballast in the second race, but confirmed a strong weekend with his charge to second in the final race.
