1 Mins read

Tockwith Motorsports driver Philip Hanson set the fastest time during qualifying for the inaugural race of the Prototype Cup at Snetterton.

Hanson, who shares the Tockwith Ligier JSP3 with Nigel Moore, turned in a 1:45.659s best to comfortably top the 20 minute session.

Sharing the second row for Sunday’s 60 minute race will be the #15 West-Tec Ligier driven by Christian England and Colin Noble.

Hanson had a 3.5 second cushion at the top of the order until Noble lowered the gap by more than half with 12 minutes to go.

The West-Tec driver then went even quicker, registering a 1:46.529s to bring the gap down to around half a second, but a string of fast laps by Hanson near the end of the session pushed the margin back out to 0.870 seconds.

Third on the grid will be Shaun Lynn, who set a time of 1:47.888s aboard the Gulf-liveried United Autosports Ligier.

Joining Lynn on the second row will be the United Autosports Ligier driven by Jacques Duyver and Charlie Hollings. A 1:48.182s lap by Frenchman Duyver with seven minutes to go gave him fourth place, ahead of the identical Wayne Boyd/Jay Palmer car.

A brief 10 minute warm-up on Sunday morning will give the nine entries a chance to shake down before the race.

The 60 minute, two-driver contest will get underway at 14:00 on Sunday afternoon (October 9).
