Majority go late with Dunlop tyre selection

The majority of the field will run the harder compound Dunlop tyre at the last opportunity during the second round of the BTCC season after the tyre selections of race day were revealed.

Nearly half of the 30 car grid will run the hard tyre in race three, including the pole-sitting BMW of Colin Turkington, although fellow front row started Josh Cook is one of those to go against the norm.

Cook, the current points leader, will run the hard tyre at the first available opportunity on his Honda Civic Type R.

Race 1:
Mark Blundell, Jack Goff, Daniel Rowbottom, Adam Morgan, Josh Cook, Michael Crees

Race 2:
Sam Osborne, Rob Collard, Aiden Moffat, Bobby Thompson, Chris Smiley, Rob Smith, Andrew Jordan, Tom Ingram

Race 3:
Colin Turkington, Tom Chilton, Rory Butcher, Jason Plato, Stephen Jelley, Tom Oliphant, Senna Proctor, Jake Hill, Matt Neal, Dan Cammish, Nicolas Hamilton, Carl Boardley, Ollie Jackson, Ash Sutton, Matt Simpson, Sam Tordoff
