Ebay still on top at Knockhill as rain falls

Turkington (photo by Marc Waller)Turkington again topped second practice at Knockhill but this time in wet conditions.

Rain fell just before the session and stopped just as the cars went out. The track was gradually drying out through the session only for the rain to fall even harder later in the session and it was red flagged for a while after Matt Neal spun off.

Rob Collard could only manage tenth this time and it was instead Nick Foster in second this time, the highest he’s managed all season. Sam Tordoff took third ahead of his team mate Plato, the two of them were the closest they’ve been all season. Shedden took fifth this time ahead of the spinning Neal. Rob Austin this time was up to seventh and looks set for a strong weekend if he can stay out of trouble. Hunter Abbott his team mate in fifteenth, perhaps less confident in the wet conditons.

The second shower was a heavy one (photo by Marc Waller)Neal (photo by Marc Waller)Andrew Jordan took eighth with Giovanardi in ninth. None of the BMR Restart cars made the top ten this time, the best of them being Jack Goff in twelfth. Adam Morgan was much further down the filed this time in seventeenth after being eleventh in the first session. Set up changes on the car made to improve it in dry conditions, didn’t help them in the wet and they will be hoping for a dry qualifying.

Collard and Turkington will both have grid penalties for race one. Collard must start from the back due to having his third penalty of the season from an incident at Snetterton and Turkington must drop eight places after and incident with Neal in race three again at Snetterton . This means Turkington can start no higher than eighth for race one. Collard’s session will be rather pointless as he will go to the back no matter what he does. He may choose to sit out the session.
