TQ (Top Qualifier) at Silverstone is taken by Hansen MJP’s Timmy Hansen, with P4 in Q4 even after contact with GCK Academy’s Cyril Raymond at the first corner. Hansen will take pole position in semi-final one this afternoon, joined on the front row by brother Kevin. Pole in semi-final two will be taken by Bakkerud, with Wiman alongside.
The semi-final one grid will be completed by GC Kompetition’s Anton Marklund and Guerlain Chicherit on row two, with ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport’s Timo Scheider and GRX Taneco’s Timur Timerzyanov on row three.
