It was double delight for Tom Ferrier as his TF Sport Aston Martin’s swept up in British GT qualifying at Silverstone on Saturday.
First, Jonny Adam and Graham Davidson snatched GT3 pole position from Iain Loggie and Callum Macleod in the first qualifying session of 2019 to combine the Pro/Am lap times.
Secondly, Josh Price and Patrick Kibble took top honours in GT4 to fend off challenges from Sennan Fielding and Richard Williams, and Scott Malvern and Nick Jones. Malvern and Jones took Pro/Am pole, with Malvern himself the fastest man through both GT4 segments.
Balfe Motorsport had a strong showing once again in the new 570S McLaren in GT3, as Shaun Balfe and Rob Bell qualified third ahead of the second TF Sport Aston Martin of Nicki Thiim and Mark Farmer. Farmer and Thiim lost the entire second practice session when Farmer made contact with a GT4 car in FP1, bringing about a suspension change.
Marco Sorensen and Andrew Howard will start fifth in a 16-strong GT3 field ahead of Richard Neary and Adam Christodoulou, with the Barwell Lamborghinis of Phil Keen/Adam Balon and Jonny Cocker/Sam De Haan.
Josh Smith and James Dorlin were fourth for Tolman Motorsport in the McLaren in GT4 ahead of Championship leaders Dean MacDonald and Callum Pointon of HHC Motorsport.
Seb Priaulx and Scott Maxwell were sixth for Multimatic Racing in the Ford Mustang ahead of Martin Plowman and Kelvin Fletcher, the Beechdean Aston Martin duo also qualifying second in the GT4 Pro/Am category.
Patrik Matthiesen and Mike Robinson completed the GT4 top eight for Aston Martin.
