Rob Boston Racing’s Tom Wrigley secured his third pole position of the season in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup at Knockhill. The talented racer topped the timing screens for the majority of the session, he put in a lap time of 51.970 to claim the pole position. The closest rival to Wrigley was Will Burns. The Douglas Motorsport driver swapped positions with Carl Boardley throughout the session but Burns just managed to hold onto second. The lap time that puts him onto the front row alongside Wrigley was a 52.032. Boardley was just a tenth of a second further back to qualify in third.
Ben Green was fourth fastest at one stage during the session before unfortunately suffering from mechanical problems late in the session forced him to retire. Reece Somerfield and Tom Hibbert improved their lap times to round out the top five. Green ended the session in sixth place ahead of the duo of Mark Davies and Callum Pointon for TCR.
In the AM class Colin White lead the way by just over three tenths of a second from Chris Ingram and Fraser Robertson. The times set in the qualifying session set the grid for the second race of the weekend as the first is the rescheduled race that was postponed from Snetterton. Hibbert will start the rescheduled race from pole position as it was a reversed grid race. Will Burns will start in second with Boardley and Wrigley occupying the second row of the grid in third and fourth. Due to Jamie Orton missing the weekend due to expecting his first child with his partner it promotes Somerfield and Davies into the top six on the grid.
