Aston Millar picks up a double pole position at Silverstone after dominating Ginetta Junior qualifying.

The R Racing driver topped the times early in the session and was untouchable from that point onwards.

Millar’s first flying lap of the day put him P1 with a 1m11.061s time around the Silverstone National circuit. He would lower the benchmark throughout the session, becoming the only driver to lap quicker than 1m11s.

He ended the morning with a 1m10.900s lap to go 0.118s quicker than P2.

Robert de Haan and Ian Aguilera both took turns in P2, but it was Sebastian Hopkins in the runner up position mid-way through the session. He took was able to lower his time and close the gap to Millar out front but was never less than a tenth of a second behind.

The pair will share the front row of the grid for races one and two, where the grid is based on second fastest lap time.

A last flying lap put Liam McNeilly third quickest overall, ahead of Aguilera and de Haan. But it will be de Haan starting P3 for race two.

Harri Reynolds and Will Jenkins took sixth and seventh. Joe Warhurst was eighth quickest overall, but his second fastest lap time was enough to put him fourth on the second grid of the weekend, ahead of Freddie Tomlinson (P9 overall) and Aguilera.

Josh Rowledge completed the top 10 for both grids.
