Jonas Gelzinis Leads Thruxton Carrera Cup Test

1 Mins read

Pro-Am1 racer Jonas Gelzinis topped the timesheets overall for the Porsche Carrera Cup GB test session today (Friday).

The Juta Racing driver's time put him ahead of Pro class drivers James Sutton and Michael Meadows for the SAS/Redline outfit, both within four-hundredths of a second of the leading Lithuanian in the lead.

“It is much easier this year,” said Gelzinis, on his second weekend at the Hampshire track. “I know how to drive the circuit faster and the driving style for the new car seems to help me.”

Michael Caine set the fourth fastest time – on the pace in the early session for the first time this year after struggles at Brands Hatch at Donington Park. Current champion Tim Harvey finished the session eighth, behind Stephen Jelley, Euan Hankey and Richard Plant. “We changed the car for the afternoon and it wasn't so good,” said Harvey, “but looking after the tyres will be the big issue here.”

Behind Gelzinis in the Pro-Am1 standings were Ahmad Al Harthy and Rory Butcher, the Scot describing his first Carrera Cup visit to Thruxton as “physical”.

Motorbase Performance driver Steve Parish set the best time among the Pro-Am2 runners from Andrew Webster and Andrew Shelley, the Redline Racing driver praising the advice given by senior teammates Caine and Harvey
