Butcher wins dramatic race three after Lloyd heartbreak
P1racenews AI automatic summary:

Toyota Gazoo Racing UK's Rory Butcher has clinched his first British Touring Car Championship victory of the season after last-lap heartbreak for long

Butcher started from the fifth position on the grid and managed to secure his first win of the season. The race took a dramatic turn on the final lap when the long-time leader, Lloyd, spun out of the race due to a suspected mechanical failure. Lloyd had led the race from pole position and seemed on track to secure a victory for his team until his car veered off the track. Despite a late safety car, Butcher was able to maintain his advantage and finished ahead of Taylor-Smith and Morgan in second and third place respectively. Collard secured a strong fourth place finish for the Toyota team, while Sutton, the championship leader, extended his points lead with a fifth place finish. Turkington, a four-time champion, finished sixth followed by Ingram and Hill in seventh and eighth place. Osborne and Jelley completed the top-ten order with ninth and tenth place finishes.
