Monger Leads The Way In Snetterton Qualifying

1 Mins read

Billy Monger has become the sixth different Ginetta Junior Championship pole position holder in six meetings this season with a storming performance in qualifying at Snetterton.

Kicking off the second half of the season in style, Monger set a best time of 2m 20s dead to take the top spot by over half a second from Patrik Matthiesen.

Matthiesen led a trio of HHC Motorsport entrants, with championship leader Jamie Caroline sharing the second row with Devlin DeFrancesco, the latter impressing on only his second outing in the series.

Alex Day took a superb fifth place, by far his strongest qualifying performance of the season so far – his previous best was fourteenth at Donington Park – while Cameron Roberts secured his fourth consecutive top ten qualifying result in sixth.

Dan Zelos, free practice topper Matt Chapman, Kyle Hornby and Senna Proctor completed the top ten, that quartet separated by just 0.090s in a closely fought mid-pack.

Seb Perez qualified eleventh, his best grid position of the season so far, ahead of Lewis Brown, Geri Nicosia and Jonathan Hadfield.

Lower than anticipated meanwhile were Dave Wooder and Stuart Middleton meanwhile, the pole-sitters at Oulton Park and Thruxton respectively left to share the final row of the grid.
