Moore tops Practice with depleted grid at Snetterton


The grid seemed quite dilapidated during a Friday test that saw only six cars take to the track. The weather continued to play a large part in proceedings as on-and-off rain saw laps times swing quite drastically.

This left Struan Moore as the fastest driver before the BRDC F4 Autumn Trophy tomorrow, as only two drivers managed to drop under the two minute mark around the Snetterton 300 track.

The track was drying significantly in the morning session leading to the times tumbling throughout the session. After 10 minutes, Moore lead the field with the HHC Motorsport drivers slotting in behind.

After a brief red flag, Moore was now swapping fastest times with Harrison Scott. The Douglas Motorsport driver made an impression early on and ended first practice with a time of 1:59.683. However; this proved no match for Moore who recorded a 1:59.375.

Scott would go on to top the second and third practice sessions with Moore retaking the lead for the final test of the day. Both will likely go into tomorrow as favourites for pole position.

While lap times are usually split by hundredths of a second, the wet track and lack of competition saw the gaps between the drivers grow. Like, the rest of the drivers, Sennan Fielding recorded his fastest time in the opening session, albeit, 2.6 seconds off the pace in third.

Ameya Vaiyanathan and Sisa Ngebulana struggled to make any inroads on the leaders, as they looked to get there cars hooked up. However; it seemed like both would be fighting for the scraps tomorrow after both were outclassed by their team mates.

The final driver to be entered was Al Faisal Al Zubair. A consistent year had seen him pick up a best result of third, but issues with the Fortec Motorsport car saw him put in no times throughout the day, leaving him on the back foot for Saturday.
