Matt Hancock was at the International GT Open which saw some great racing today…But first, this is what happened in qualifying….
The Lamborghini Huracans EVO of Emil Frey Racing stormed in Qualifying 1, on a chilly morning at Silverstone, to trust the first row for Race 1 this afternoon.
Inaugurating the new qualifying system (which determines grid position on the basis of the average of the best lap of each driver), championship co-leaders Giacomo Altoè and Albert Costa each proved fastest. They beat their team mates Mikaël Grenier-Norbert Siedler by 0.656 seconds. Second row will be for the McLaren of Fran Rueda-Andrés Saravia (Teo Martín) and the Mercedes of Fabrizio Crestani-Miguel Ramos (SPS Performance), with the other points co-leaders, Henrique Chaves-Martin Kodric (McLaren Teo Martin), with some handling problems, in third row together with the other SPS Mercedes of Tom Onslow-Cole – Valentin Pierburg.
Giuseppe Cipriani took the pole in Am, while his team mate at Antonelli Motorsport suffered a crash that prompted a red flag.
