Smiley surges to fastest time in Donington BTCC FP2

Saturday, April 27 2019

BTC Racing's Chris Smiley posted the fastest time in the second BTCC Free Practice session of the day (Saturday) at Donington Park. 

Smiley's late effort in the Honda Civic Type-R was three tenths quicker than nearest rival Adam Morgan's Mercedes A Class, with Rory Butcher completing the top-three in the AmD Honda Civic. 

Jack Goff was next up in his Team HARD Volkswagen CC, a fraction ahead of team mate Bobby Thompson's similar machine, with Rob Collard inside the top-six in the Vauxhall Astra.

Championship leader Josh Cook was seventh quickest in the BTC Honda Civic Type-R, with Michael Crees in eighth in just his second BTCC weekend. 

Ashley Sutton and Carl Boardley completed the top-10, with Boardley ensuring all the Team HARD VW's were inside the top-10. 

The session was run in drier conditions compared to the first practice, with times around six seconds quicker than this morning's best.
