Turkington fastest in qualifying but Tordoff gets the pole

Turkington (photo by Marc Waller)Colin Turkington set the fastest time in qualifying at Knockhill but with his penalty from Snetterton it was Sam Tordoff who took pole.

Alongside him was Rob Austin who had been improving all day and set his best time when it mattered most.

The session was dry and sunny but was not without incident as Chris Stockton spun into the gravel at the first corner bringing out a red flag.

Behind the front row, Andrew Jordan took third just in front of Gordon Shedden, the best placed of the Scottish drivers.

Seventh was Mat Jackson, another driver getting his best placing of the day when it mattered. Nick Foster lines up eighth and with the penalties for both his team mates, he is the best placed Ebay Motors driver. Ninth is Colin Turkington, his penalty moving him back eight spots from what would have been pole. Tenth was Glynn Geddie, pleasing the Scottish crowd by putting a third Scottish driver into the top ten. Hunter Abbott lines up eleventh, just outside the top ten and his best position in qualifying to date.
