Jake Hill put WSR and BMW on top of the podium for a second-straight British Touring Car Championship round as he scored a brilliant double victory at Thruxton on Sunday.

The Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport driver repeated the heroics of Snetterton two weeks earlier aboard his BMW 330e M Sport to move up to second place in the Drivers’ Championship.

The Kent ace made a strong start to move from third place on the grid into an immediate lead in Race One. He managed his advantage over the chasing pack and claimed the first win of the day.

The pressure was even stronger in Race Two as upto six cars – all with more laps of the 60bhp hybrid boost allowance than Jake – lined up behind him. Only one made it past as Jake finished second.

However, a post-race penalty for an illegal overtake for the on-the-road winner promoted Jake to the top spot as he made it back-to-back double wins for the first time in his BTCC career.

Not only that, but his fourth success of 2024 and 16th career victory – which came at BMW UK’s local circuit – was the 125th BTCC win for WSR.

Jake’s 54-point haul was his largest of the season and helped him close to within five points of the championship lead as well as maintaining BMW’s second place in the Manufacturers’ Championship.

Team BMW’s Adam Morgan scored his highest weekend points total of the season as the Lancashire racer climbed from 10th to seventh place in the standings.

Starting seventh, he finished the opening two races in eighth place and was then drawn on pole position on Race Three’s partially-reversed grid.

Leading more laps than anybody else, pressure from behind eventually led to him ceding several spots late in the day as he finished a season’s-best fourth.

Team-mate Colin Turkington turned 10th on the Race One grid into ninth place in the race and then added a pair of sevenths later in the day.

The four-time champion sits fourth in the Drivers’ points as a trip to Oulton Park – where he has enjoyed some of his most successful weekends – beckons.
