Stat Attack: BTCC Rounds 25-27, Silverstone

The clock is now well and truly counting down to Finals Day, when one of eight drivers will secure the 2016 BTCC title at Brands Hatch.

It promises to be a fascinating weekend of action as the final three races of the year take place but before then, here’s a quick look at what the stats threw up at Silverstone…


• Ash Sutton secured his second pole position of the season; the fourth drivers to achieve the feat after Tom Ingram, Gordon Shedden and Colin Turkington

• Sutton’s pole position means he more NGTC poles than Matt Neal whilst it was the 18th for the MG6 GT – twelve more than any of the other cars still actively racing on the grid

• Tom Ingram continues to head the qualifying averages with an average of 4.22, with Sutton second on 5.44. Gordon Shedden is third of those drivers to have competed all season on 6.67 – level with Dan Lloyd after his three round stint with Eurotech

• Ingram now only needs to qualify inside the top eleven at Brands Hatch to confirm his position as best qualifier

• Andrew Jordan, Rob Austin, Warren Scott and Kelvin Fletcher enjoyed their best qualifying results of the year

• Jackson secured his 75th BTCC podium finish in his 300th BTCC race
