We’ll be back on the live blog for tomorrow’s two hour race scheduled to start at 1:05pm
Bradley Ellis has given Twisted Team Parker GT4 pole on their British GT debut
So it’s Joe Osborne and Lee Mowle’s 888Optimum Racing BMW on pole with a lap of 1:28.289. He’s 0.450 seconds faster than later improver Richard Westbrook.
Checkered Flag out – no further improvements – probably because of the off at the bottom of the hill which looks like it could have been Declan Jones in the Century Ginetta G50
Westbrook goes 2nd with only a minute remaining and it looks like someone’s off at Schwantz Curve. No idea who…
GT4 points leaders Optimum Motorsport have gone second in the class – the best of the teams that will score points this weekend
Richard Westbrook comes from nowhere to go 3rd in the tartan #32 Trackspeed Porsche
Rob Barff has gone to 3rd in the FF Corse Ferrari, Matt Bell now 5th in the United Autosports Audi behind Nick Tandy in #31
Joe Osborne smashes Bryant’s time, taking pole by nearly half a second – five minutes to go
Dan Brown puts the #888 up to 6th, but he’s bumped down by Team LNT and Mike Simpson
Now Oliver Bryant bumps him 1:28.766 from the Ecurie Ecosse man. Phil Keen now third in #33
Tandy take provisional pole – 8 minutes to go
Oliver Bryant shoots up to fifth fastest, Jonny Adam and John go 2nd and 3rd. Action!
Well, it comes in GT4 where Bradley Ellis puts the Twisted Team Parker G50 fastest
Faster men out – where will the first improvement come from?
Nathan Freke has put the Century Motorsport Ginetta G50 GT4 with a lap of 1:38.502
Just after half way through the session and teams are pitting for their quick men to fight for pole position. Stand by!
The six title contenders in GT3 are 6th (Beechdean) 17th (Ecurie Ecosse) 10th (Motobase) 19th (#31 Trackspeed) 8th (#888 BMW) and 4th (United Autosports)
Aston Martins are 1-2 in GT4, Tom Wilson has but the Complete Racing car second fastest
Uh-oh – Derek Johnston brings the Mtech Ginetta G55 with front-left damage – session over for them
It’s – by and large – the slower drivers in the car now so don’t expected too many improvements
The green flag is back out to restart the session!
Still under the red flag, Piers Johnson’s rather ungainly parking position causing the recovery team a few headaches
Aston Martin racing man Richie Stanaway is fastest in GT4, but Nathan Freke is the fastest point scoring team sixth tenths behind in the Centiry Motorsport Ginetta

Barff’s lap still holds pole with Osborne, Simpson, Bell, Abra and Jonny Adam in the top six
And the red flag comes out to aid the recovery of the #78 BMW stopping the clock with 23 minutes remaining
Mike Simpson has moved into 3rd fastest in the Team LNT Ginetta G55 GT3
Piers Johnson has spun exiting the Goddards hairpin and is blocking the entry to the pitlane
Now Rob Barff – fastest in FP1 goes to provisional pole, with Joe Osborne and Matt Bell in the United Autosports Audi 2nd and 3rd
FP2 topper Joe Osborne then goes fastest, but Michael Caine beat him to put the #1 Porsche fastest on1:29.920
