British GT Qualifying: Oulton Park Poles for Bentley and Porsche

Saturday, September 11 2021

The Paddock Motorsport Bentley Continental GT3 and the Team Parker Racing Porsche 911 GT3 R claimed pole positions for tomorrow's two Intelligent Money British GT Championship races at Oulton Park.

The Bentley will start the first race (due to start at 13.10) from pole position, secured by Kelvin Fletcher. The actor-turned racer was over three tenths of a second clear of the RAM Racing Mercedes-AMG of Kevin Tse.

The following cars were much closer, with the Enduro Motorsport's McLaren 720S third courtesy of Morgan Tillbrook's effort, 0.084s away from second place, and 0.085s ahead of the Beechdean Aston Martin of Andrew Howard. That was despite a hefty shunt for Howard on the approach to Shell Oils Corner that brought a premature end to the first part of qualifying.

Howard's time was enough to put him just ahead of the WPI Motorsport Lamborghini of Michael Igoe, with Team ABBA Racing's Mercedes completing the race one grid top-six, which was covered by just over six tenths of a second.

The second session for pro drivers was even closer, with the top four drivers separated by less than a tenth of a second.

Scott Malvern put the Team Parker Racing Porsche 911 GT3 on pole, just five thousandths of second ahead of Barwell Motorsport's Lamborghini Huracan of Dennis Lind.

The second Barwell car of Sandy Mitchell and the RAM Racing Mercedes of Yelmer Buurman were separated by just one thousandth of a second in third and fourth respectively.

Marcus Clutton put the Enduro Motorsport McLaren fifth ahead of Fletcher's teammate Martin Plowman.

The second race will start at 16.25.
