The fight for pole was all about Abbie Eaton and Jamie Stanley; they had traded places at the top of the timing screens early in the session, Stanley’s JMH-run Lamborghini Huracan on old rubber letting the Grand Tour’s Eaton hold provisional pole for the Praga contingent. It didn’t matter, of course, the two professionals are competing for discrete prizes, but there is pride, and perhaps a little needle, the pair both at times piloting John Seale’s Lambo, but Stanley was having none of it, bolting on new rubber and posting the sessions only sub-one minute lap with six minutes to go. John Seale will start Race 1 from pole, with Abbie Eaton alongside for the rolling start – with 35 cars, this is going to be a stunner.
