Brad Bailey took his maiden Ginetta Junior Championship pole positions during qualifying for the final rounds of the 2011 season at Silverstone.

Bailey sat at the top of the timesheets for the final few minutes and despite the best efforts of those behind, no-one could go quicker than his 1min 10.029s lap, giving the TJ Motorsport driver his first pole position of the year for the weekend's opening race.

In a frantic final few moments, three different drivers moved their way into second place, but taking the front row spot was Niall Murray, the 2010 Ginetta Junior Ireland champion ending up 0.122s behind Bailey. Third fastest was Jake Giddings, the FML driver sitting 0.209s off the top, while newly crowned 2011 champion Seb Morris ended up fourth.

Lining up on row three will be TJ Motorsport's Sennan Fielding and privateer Max Coates, with Tom Howard next up. Starting eighth will be Charlie Robertson, the HHC Motorsport driver being one of many drivers losing fast laps due to exceeding the track limits.

Rounding out the top ten were Declan Jones and Oliver Chadwick, with William Foster and Struan Moore sitting on row six. Thirteenth was series newcomer Andrew Watson, the Ginetta Junior Ireland frontrunner making his debut with HHC Motorsport, while TJ Motorsport's George Gamble could only make fourteenth on the grid.

The drivers second best times set the grid for the weekend's second race, with Bailey once again on top with a time of 1min 10.074s. Murray will once again join him on the front row, with Fielding and Morris lining up on row two. Coates will line up fifth, ahead of Robertson, Howard and Giddings. Moore and Jones round out the top ten.
