So round two takes place in much better weather conditions that the snowy opener at Brands Hatch three weeks ago. Andy Neate isn’t at Donington with his self-run Chevrolet Cruze and the third Motorbase NGTC Ford of Michael Caine doesn’t appear to have turned up as planned.
Gordon Shedden was quickest in the first practice session ahead of Matt Neal and then the two MGs of Sam Tordoff and Jason Plato. TOC was 13th, the Tony Gilham cars did a test at Silverstone the other day and the Volkswagen has been significantly updated.
My internet isn’t fast enough at the moment to watch on the qualifying stream on the ITV website so I watched the live timing. Qualifying stopped early so it’s Shedden on pole followed by Wrathall who had been quickest earlier on. Wrathall had displaced Jordan who is third ahead of Neal and Plato.
TOC ran in the top ten during the session but ended up 11th.
