Balon and Keen top the times in British GT FP2 at Donington Park

Saturday, June 22 2019

British GT Championship standings leaders Adam Balon and Phil Keen topped the times in the second free practice session of the weekend at Donington Park this afternoon (Saturday).

Keen set the fastest lap time of the weekend so far, lapping the full Donington Park Grand Prix circuit in 1m27.732s to seize the initiative ahead of this afternoon's split qualifying session. 

Keen's time edged out the best effort from Dane Nicki Thiim, who topped the earlier session in the Aston Martin V8 Vantage he shares with Mark Farmer, by just a tenth-of-a-second. Thiim and Farmer's team-mates Graham Davidson and Jonny Adam completed the top-three, just a hundreth of a second further back. 

Former BTCC ace Tom Onslow-Cole was fourth quickest in the Mercedes-AMG he shares with Richard Neary, just ahead of the Aston Martin of Ollie Wilkinson and Bradley Ellis.

In the GT4 class, Seb Priaulx and Scott Maxwell topped the times for a second session in a row, this time from the BMW M4 of Andrew Gordon-Colebrooke and Angus Fender. 

This was the final free practice session of the weekend, and the next time the cars take to the track will be in the segmented qualifying session later which will determine the grid for tomorrow's headline two-hour contest.
