Matt Neal was second fastest in his Honda Civic having seemingly found his usual Thruxton form with some spectacular leaps over the kerbs as he set his time. Jack Goff was another driver attacking the kerbs on his way to third fastest in the MG6. Just behind him was Team mate Andrew Jordan, the two MG drivers beating each other’s times until Goff set his best on lap 8.
Priaulx, the second placed driver in the first session was down in fifth this time but his time was just 0.234 from pole. Turkington was sixth this time but again he was just fractionally (0.259) off the pole time.
Shedden appeared to be taking his turn as the slower Honda driver this time in seventh with Adam Morgan in eighth, keeping up his top ten consistency. Josh Cook was ninth this time, looking quick and in control. He beat his team mate Dave Newsham, who this time was in eleventh. Splitting them was Jeff Smith in the Eurotech Civic, who seemed to be another driver enjoying Thruxton’s kerbs!
His team mate Martin Depper was twelfth. Tordoff was again off the pace in thirteenth but team mate Collard had slipped further back and was behind him in fourteenth. Completing the top fifteen was Aiden Moffat in his Laser Tools racing Mercedes. Infiniti’s new driver Martin Donelley was down in 26th with his team mate Derek Palmer in twenty third.
One team that seems to be struggling are fan favourites Excocet Alcosense racing (RAR) who have been off the pace in both sessions. This time they were nineteenth and twenty first for Rob Austin and Hunter Abbott respectively.
Poor Dan Welch had the worst session of all though. He hit a kerb too hard at the final chicance early in the session and was fired off into the wall. The session had to be stopped while Welch’s car was recovered and he was sent to the medical centre for checks.
The weather at Thruxton has so far remained dry with no rain now forecast for qualifying at 4:05pm
