BMW racer secures crown despite difficult outing at Kent track, while Cammish and Sutton end season with race wins

BMW driver Colin Turkington secured his third British Touring Car Championship title in the 2018 season finale at Brands Hatch - despite failing to score points in two of the three races.

Dan Cammish and Ash Sutton also left the Kent track celebrating: Honda Civic Type R racer Cammish scored his first two career BTCC wins, while 2017 champ Sutton claimed his sixth victory of the season in the final race.

Northern Irish racer Turkington entered the season finale 34 points clear of title rival Tom Ingram, and extended his advantage with a 12th place finish in the opener, when both drivers were hampered by success ballast. Ingram could only muster 14th in his Toyota Avensis.

Meanwhile, Cammish became the 17th different winner of the season, after battling past pole-sitter Brett Smith, who was driving an older-spec Type R. Cammish’s Honda team-mate Matt Neal also fought his way past Smith to take second.
