1 Mins read

Stephen Jelley showed his pace during testing at Knockhill today ahead of rounds 15 and 16 of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB as he topped the timesheets.

With the top four cars covered by seven hundredths of a second and the fastest 12 cars within one second the session was close fought.

Despite topping the times Jelley admitted after the test that he felt he could have done better: “I out-braked myself on my best lap and so I think I’ve got a couple of tenths in my pocket. We’ll see,”

Championship leader Tim Harvey finished second fastest of the day after being top of the times in the first session. “I’m very happy with that,” he said. “We did a bit of a race run this afternoon and we’re looking very good,”

Jonas Gelzinis put in an impressive performance as he lapped fast enough to take third place and top the Pro-Am1 category as he set the same time as Michael Meadows. Gelzinis admitted after the session that he had a small advantage for this weekend after taking part in a mid-week test along with many of the leading drivers. “I had one more day to learn the circuit,” he said. “It’s quite a tricky circuit and you have to be brave in some corners,”

Harvey’s main championship riveal Michael Caine would end the session fifth fastest ahead of Ahmad Al Harthy who was happy with his times. “I’m really delighted with that,” said the Oman racer. “We know we have the pace to do it and we can build on that for tomorrow,”

Team Parker Racing team-mates Euan Hankey and Glynn Geddie lined up behind Al Harthy with Charle Bateman, Ollie Jackson and Liam Griffin just behind.

Glenn McMenamin managed to edge out local racers George Brewster and Rory Butcher to top the Pro-Am2 times. “It eventually came,” said McMenamin of his best time. “It’s all about commitment here and I was just pushing and pushing,”
