Nine In Nine: Hornby Storms To Silverstone Pole Position

1 Mins read

Kyle Hornby secured his maiden Ginetta Junior Championship pole position with a star performance in qualifying for the penultimate meeting of the season at Silverstone.

The R&J Motorsport man topped the timesheets almost throughout, with a blistering effort of 1m 10.705s giving him top spot by over a quarter of a second.

The result means Hornby is remarkably the ninth different driver to lead the way in qualifying in nine sessions so far this season.

Championship leader Jamie Caroline took second on the grid, his sixth consecutive top three qualifying result, with his chief title rival Senna Proctor in fourth.

Dave Wooder split the title protagonists, the Total Control Racing ace missing out on the front row by just one thousandths of a second.

Lewis Brown set the outright best first sector in the session, but traffic stopped him from improving on fifth late in the session as he edged out Dan Zelos for a top five spot.

Patrik Matthiesen and Matt Chapman will share row four for the opening race, while Esmee Hawkey took her first top ten qualifying result of the season so far in ninth,

Cameron Roberts completed the top ten ahead of Devlin DeFrancesco, who was on pole last time out at Rockingham, with Geri Nicosia, Billy Monger, Stuart Middleton and Alex Day completing the top fifteen.
