Tom Sharp in action

After a very tight qualifying in the Ginetta GT Supercup Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) took pole position, but the top 4 places were covered by 54 thousandths of a second. in second place was Andrew Richardson (Richardson Racing) with Tom Ingram (JHR) 3rd and Josh Wakefield (the player.co.uk/Century Motorsport) in 4th place.

Hunter Abbott in Action

Of the new runners Hunter Abbott (Century Motorsport) was representative as he stated “Reasonably happy only 1/2 second off pole but that left me in 7th place”
Tom Sharp was a bit more sanguine “With the track damp at the start I took it easy but managed at the end to get a clean lap when I was not held up to snatch pole on my last lap”

Josh Wakefield in action

Josh Wakefield was disappointed with only 4th place especially as he had showed early and was 8/10 second faster than anyone, but he has bumped down to 4th. As Josh said “A bit of what should have been and when at the end of a session I was on a hot lap that might have snatched pole i was held up at Cascades. It is a long weekend and i expect to be on the podium after the first race.
The first race of the season takes place at 14:20 and is over 16 laps. The weather is overcast but a small possibility of rain this afternoon.
