James Hedley starts the penultimate round of the 2019 Ginetta Junior championship with another pole position at Silverstone, topping the times with his final lap of the session.
Scholarship winner Ethan Brooks spent most of the second half of the session top of the order, set for his first car racing pole position.
Hedley was 0.08s behind at the start of their final laps, but put personal best sector times in both sectors to find just under a tenth of a second. He ended the morning with a 1m11.694s to take his ninth pole of the season, 0.012s ahead of Brooks.
His second fastest lap time was enough to put the championship leader on pole for the second race of the weekend, while Gus Burton – who qualified third overall – beat Brooks to the front row of the grid.
Will Martin took fourth quickest, ahead of Joel Pearson and championship contender Zak O’Sullivan.
James Taylor topped the time early in the session before a red flag was brought out when championship newcomer Kieran Fuller came to a stop on track.
When the session resumed with nine minutes on the clock, Taylor couldn’t find the same improvements as the rest of the field, dropping back to seventh before the chequered flag.
Lorcan Hanafin, Ethan Hawkey, and Casper Stevenson completed the top 10.
