Walker and Taylor secure Silverstone GB4 poles

Saturday, May 07 2022

Elite Motorsport's Alex Walker was the fastest GB4 driver in qualifying on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, and secured his third pole of the season for race one, just 0.065s faster than teammate Jack Sherwood.

Meanwhile, on second best times, Nikolas Taylor claimed his third pole of the year for race two.

Championship leader Walker's best effort came just a couple of minutes before the end of a closely fought session that saw Christian Lester, Jessica Edgar and Megan Gilkes enjoy spells at the top of the times. 

Walker eventually claimed pole, but by the narrowest margin yet seen in GB4.

Teammate Sherwood enjoyed his best qualifying of the year so far with his first front row position, while Fortec's Taylor had to settle for third on the race one grid but will go from pole in race two.

Max Marzorati put his Hillspeed car fourth on the race two grid, a couple of tenths clear of teammate Megan Gilkes while Fortec's Elias Adestam was sixth quickest.

Jarrod Waberski was the fastest of the Kevin Mills Racing cars with the seventh best time ahead of newcomer Lucas Romanek in the Oldfield Motorsport machine. 

Edgar was eventually classified ninth, with Waberski's teammate Tom Mills completing the top-10. 

On the race two grid, Taylor was 0.132s faster than Marzorati, who climbs up to second, with Gilkes just behind him in third. Walker will start fourth, with Waberski fifth and Adestam sixth. All six were within half a second of each other.

The race two grid top-10 is completed by Sherwood, Romanek, Edgar and Mills. 

The first GB4 race of the weekend is due to start at 17.00 with live streaming set to commence at 16.30.
