Hedley on pole for season finale

by Bethonie Waring

James Hedley starts as he means to go on with double pole position for the 2019 Ginetta Junior championship season finale.

Hedley once again pipped Ethan Brooks to the top of the times with his final lap of the session, setting a 1m54.411s lap around the Brands Hatch GP circuit.

The pole earns Hedley another point, extending his championship lead over Zak O’Sullivan to 70 points.

O’Sullivan, the only driver who can stop Hedley taking the title, will start the opening lap of the weekend from seventh.

Hedley topped the times early in the session before Gus Burton stopped  on track with nine minutes remaining, bringing out the red flags.

When action resumed, Brooks and Lorcan Hanafin both lowered the fastest lap, before Hedley jumped back to the top of the order with time 0.250s quicker than Hanafin.

Aston Millar came to a stop in the second sector with three minutes left on the clock, bringing out the second red flag of the session.

With time only for one more quick lap, times plummeted in the final part of the session, with James Taylor, Will Martin, and Brooks all briefly taking provisional pole before Hedley jumped back up the order with his final lap.

Brooks finished second, 0.284s slower than Hedley.

Gale and Hanafin occupy the second row of the grid, ahead of Martin, Taylor, and O’Sullivan.

Joel Pearson, Haytham Qarajouli, and Ethan Hawkey completed the top 10.
