Miller claims maiden pole for 2020 finale

by Bethonie Waring

Josh Miller claimed his maiden Ginetta Junior pole position despite bringing out the red flags in the final qualifying session of the season.

Miller was one of three drivers to fall into the gravel at Brands Hatch in the disrupted wet qualifying session.

Miller set the pace early on with a 1m05.000s lap around the Indy circuit. He was briefly knocked off the top spot by championship leader Bailey Voisin, but reclaimed provisional pole position just before an off for Trennon Bettany brought out the red flag just after the 5 minute mark.

The session resumed after a short break, but the green flags were only out for a handful of minutes before two driver ran off at separate parts of the circuit.

Miller ran into the gravel at Paddock Hill Bend and, though he had good momentum, couldn’t keep going and was left stranded. At Clarke Curve, Will Jenkins also ran wide into the gravel.

The falling rain meant lap times in the final five minutes of the session couldn’t compare to those early on, and nobody was able to match Miller’s time.

He ended the morning with a 1m04.470s time, 0.375s ahead of Voisin.

Championship contender Tom Lebbon took third, ahead of Sebastian Hopkins and Joel Pearson.

Will Jenkins qualified sixth and managed to get back out after bringing out the red flag, but was given a black flag for doing so.

Tommy Pintos took seventh, ahead of Tom Edgar, Josh Rattican and Will Aspin.
