Day tops practice at Brands Hatch
Alon Day set the fastest lap time in the NASCAR GP UK free practice driving the CAAL Racing’s Toyota Camry, while Ulysse Delsaux was quickest in ELITE 2 on the RDV Competition’s Toyota.
Both ELITE 1 practice sessions were extremely tight and the combined classification features 17 drivers in 1 second. Braxx Racing Chevrolet Camaro of Marc Goossens was quickest in the opening session, but Alon Day (pictured) posted a blistering fast 48.474 seconds lap in final practice, going less than one tenth of a second from the track record held by Frederic Gabillon on the RDV Competition’s Toyota Camry since 2013.
Two-time Champion Anthony Kumpen was second fastest with the PK Carsport’s Chevrolet SS, a mere .039 seconds behind Day. The two split the last four Brands Hatch races. Gianmarco Ercoli’s Ford Mustang led the Junior Trophy for Racers Motorsport finishing third overall, just ahead of the Hendriks Motorsport’s Ford Mustang of Loris Hezemans, while Gabillon rounded out the top-5.
Stienes Longin (PK Carsport Chevrolet Camaro), Marc Goossens (Braxx Racing Ford Mustang), Alexander Graff (Memphis Racing Chevrolet SS), Francesco Sini (Solaris Motorsport Chevrolet Camaro) and Christophe Bouchut (DF1 Racing Team Chevrolet SS) completed the the top-10.
