The BTCC’s third racing weekend of the year took us to Snetterton, which not only boasts the longest circuit on the calendar but also one of the most technical.

For the in-form NAPA Racing UK squad, there were contrastingly mixed fortunes; former champion Ash Sutton delivered a dominant display; the pole position man never coming under threat for either of the first two races, and steering himself to the top of the championship standings. For Dan Cammish however, this was a weekend to both forget and regret. A mistake in qualifying put him to the back of the grid for Race 1, and despite racing to a lowly points finish for the first two starts, his seemingly heroic drive to P2 in the final encounter was soon consigned to the shredder when his car failed post-race ride height checks.

Tom Ingram was the other major winner on the day. Two solid points returns in Races 1 & 2, and then a determined drive to Race 3 victory saw the reigning champion battle against illness to give his title retention hopes a solid boost.

Here are twenty of our favourite images that help to tell the story of the weekend.
