A three-hour race, the grid has swelled to 51 entries this time out with the addition of the Competition102 GT4 European Series field bringing an extra 17 cars to give the GT4 field a bit of extra competition.

On pole is the Team Parker Racing Bentley Continental GT3 of Rick Parfitt and Seb Morris who have claimed their third pole of the year to put themselves on the front row. Just behind them though is the Barwell Motorsport Lamborghini Huracan GT3 of Liam Griffin and the returning Alexander Sims.

In GT4, Ciaran Haggerty and Sandy Mitchell secured the first pole position for the Black Bull Ecurie Ecosse McLaren 570S GT4 with two absolutely dominant laps to put themselves a second clear of the #407 Baby Beechdean AMR of Jack Bartholomew and Jordan Albert.

The GT4 European Series pole went to the Racing Team Holland by Ekris Motorsport Ekris M4 GT4 of Luc Braams and Duncan Huisman, they’ll start seventh in the GT4 enclave of the grid.
