Tom Edgar tops a disrupted second qualifying session in the 2021 Ginetta Junior Winter Series.

Two red flags paused running at Brands Hatch before a third in the final three minutes of the session brought an early end to qualifying.

Edgar managed to put in a 1m05.449s lap to go top of the times before the final red flag, lapping seven seconds slower than was managed in qualifying on day 1.

The first red flag came just before the six minutes mark, as Jack Sherwood ran into the gravel at Paddock Hill Bend.

Edgar had already topped the order at this point with a lap in the 1m06s. Aqil Alibhai was second quickest ahead of Joe Warhurst.

The session resumed once Sherwood was recovered with another five minutes of green flag running. Edgar was able to lower his quickest time, but there was no movement in the top three.

Maurice Henry jumped up to fourth quickest but before anyone else could try to improve McKenzie Douglass went off at the same corner as Sherwood, bringing out the red flags with six minutes remaining.

The session resumed, but there was little time for anyone to put in another flying lap before another incident further down the order brought out the red flags again.

With just two minutes on the clock, the session came to a close with Edgar top of the order.

Alibhai held onto second ahead of Warhurst, Henry, and Max Dodds.

Liam McNeilly could only manage sixth quickest, while rookie Sonny Smith was able to place seventh overall. Day one race winner Josh Rowledge ended the session P8, while Max Hall and Harri Reynolds rounded out the top 10.

With limited running, the order based on second fastest lap times was even more disrupted. Edgar topped the order, but Warhurst jumped up to P2. Alibhai, McNeilly, and Henry completed the top five.
