Qualifying just finished for tomorrow's first race. Made interesting by the rain. Shedden takes pole and leads the championship with 1 point. Honda's seem to have set the pace, but Gio got in the mix as did Jordan. Plato gambled on tyres early on and lost out, but managed to pull his Cruze back to a challenging 5th. Boardman finished in 14th appears to have struggled for pace in qualifying and maybe caught out by the wet conditions as he had shown some promising pace in both free practice sessions which were drying or dry. Shaun and AMD showed have demonstrated improvements in the free practice also, but could only manage 18th overall on the wet/damp circuit. Very early days for the team and I think they will be more than happy to compete hopefully score some points tomorrow. Coverage is on ITV4 from 11am tomorrow, all the BTCC races from Thruxton will be shown LIVE.
