Dan Cammish continued where he left off as he led the way in testing at Snetterton ahead of rounds 16,17 and 18.
With mixed conditions at the Norfolk circuit he topped the time sheets in a wet opening session ahead of Jayde Kruger, the second session saw the opposition gain some ground but Cammish still dominated finishing with a time of 1m 51.461s, 0.7s ahead of Argentinian driver Nico Maranzana.
“The car feels great but I’m a bit rusty after the summer break,” said Cammish. “It was very good indeed in the wet, but I needed a refresher because I haven’t driven in those conditions for a long time. It was a good test, all very positive, and we’ll see if we can build on that tomorrow in qualifying.”
Kruger put in a strong performance in the second session until mechanical problems sidelined him, leaving him with the third fastest time of the day. Team-mate Juan Rosso also suffered from mechanical issues with a slipping clutch in the second session, leaving him unable to better his wet-session time. “It’s really bad luck,” said the Argentinian. “I was hoping for some good running in the dry, but I got only one lap.”
Harrison Scott finished the session in fourth place ahead of the JTR pair of Camren Kaminsky and Sam Brabham.
Following the summer break there are a few new faces joining the grid for this round including Matthew Graham who powered though an electrical issue in the first session to finish fifth fastest.
Kuwaiti driver Zaid Ashkanani also made his debut claiming seventh fastest place with Connor Mills also experiencing electrical issues on his way to ninth.
Andy Richardson suffered from various issues following a new engine installation and failed to make it out on track in the second session after the team discovered clutch issues.
Official qualifying is scheduled for 1020 tomorrow, ahead of round 16 of the championship at 1340. There are two further races on Sunday.
