Millar tops qualifying for Winter Series Day 2

by Bethonie Waring

Aston Millar denied James Taylor pole for the third race of the weekend at Brands Hatch.

As in Saturday qualifying, Taylor jumped to the top of the times early on, and continued to lower the benchmark throughout the 15 minute session.

The Elite Motorsport driver became the first driver to set a sub-1 minute lap when he set a time of 59.916s, and looked to be the only driver to do so when the chequered flag came out.

Millar, who had been gradually lowering his own lap-time, found half a second in his final lap of the session, putting himself on pole by 0.167s. The 59.752s lap-time was unbetable and he claims his first pole in Ginetta Juniors.

Joel Pearson ran into trouble on his final lap and din’t make it back to the pits. He finished third quickest, ahead of Zak Taylor and Bailey Voisin.

Ben Kasperczak and Daniel Gale took sixth and seventh, ahead of Tom Edgar, Tom Lebbon, and Freddie Tomlinson.

William Aspin completed the order.
