Snetterton Poles For Robertson and Morris

1 Mins read

Charlie Robertson took his third pole position in four races in qualifying for Rounds Eleven and Twelve of the 2011 Ginetta Junior Championship around the Snetterton 300 circuit, with the driver's second fastest times putting championship leader Seb Morris on top for the second race.  

HHC Motorsport's Robertson set a best lap of 2min 18.268s around the newly configured '300' circuit to take pole position, 0.146s ahead of Morris, who just pipped team-mate Struan Moore to a front row start.

Fourth fastest was Tollbar Racing's William Foster, who just edged out Jake Giddings by 0.062s, the duo lining up ahead of TJ Motorsport trio George Gamble, Brad Bailey and Sennan Fielding. JHR Developments Oliver Chadwick took a strong ninth, with Tom Howard rounding out the top ten ahead of Myles Collins and Max Coates. Sixteenth fastest on his series debut was William Palmer, racing with Hillspeed.

Morris' second best time of 2min 18.466s was good enough to give him pole for the weekend's second race, with Robertson 0.260s behind. Moore was once again third ahead of Giddings and Gamble, with Foster just making sixth this time.

Fielding beat team-mate Bailey to seventh, with Howard ninth and Chadwick tenth. Losing out in qualifying was reigning Ginetta Junior Ireland champion Niall Murray when on his first lap, a stone flicked up by a rival put a hole in his radiator, forcing the Beacon Racing driver out of the session, leaving him seventeenth and last for both races.
