The year-old was in the thick of the action throughout the weekend with a stellar qualifying performance, fastest race laps and fight back drives, culminating in a magnificent win in the finale. From eighth on the grid, Sutton scythed his way through to fourth in the early running and was then part of an enthralling four-way battle for the lead, which also included Ollie Jackson, Chris Smiley and Josh Cook.
The Motorbase Performance Ford of Jackson led the opening laps but was eventually passed by the impressive Smiley in the all-new Excelr8 Motorsport Hyundai. It was a matter of when, not if, and shortly after mid-distance young charger Sutton blasted by Smiley along the Dunlop Straight.
Sutton sailed away with the win in the closing laps, whilst Smiley crossed the finish line just 0. It was a wonderful way to end an incredible day of racing as the BTCC made its long-awaited return to action. After all our preparation, to get a win feels fantastic and a great result for the team. My race was made off the line; I knew the job had to be done before turn one.
Once I was in front my car had electric pace, it felt even stronger with a little weight in it, which settled things down.
