Omar Ismail Claims first BRDC F4 Pole

1 Mins read

Omar Ismail claims his first pole position of the season after a impressive run on Friday allowed him to get momentum for the Saturday qualifying session. The BRDC Formula 4 racer will look to improve on the 20 points he already has in the championship.

The conclusion saw the same top three in practice as we had seen for the practice sessions. Championship leader Will Palmer claimed second place in his HHC Motorsport car. He’d started the session off poorly, struggling to find clear track. However; pulled a lap out with 12 minutes to go to leap up to third, soon beating his team mate.

HHC Motorsport continued their impressive run going third as well with Harri Newey. The 16 year old dominated the Friday pracitce session but was unable to claim his second pole of the year.

The session had started with Ismail being the first out of the pits. Behind him in the early stages were Rodrigo Fonseca and Sisa Ngebulana as the times continued to fall.

One of the largest differences in speed was seen at the half way point with the third placed, Newey being a full second quicker than Tom Jackson in fourth, who would maintain the position until the end ahead of Fernando Urrutia

A few drivers, including Jordan Albert and rookie Marc Gonzalez saw their times deleted late on but this did not affect the order largely as the session ended under red flag, with James Reveler stopping in the final sector with two minutes to go.
