BIRD TOPS TIME TABLES AT KNOCKHILL

Sam Bird, aged 19, from Claygate, Surrey, today topped the time tables in the Formula Renault UK pre-race test at Knockhill, Scotland. On a dull but dry day at the Championship's northernmost circuit, Sam drove the FRenault for the first time here.

"I have driven here in Formula BMW" said Sam "but the circuit has seen some changes and as all Fortec's four cars are in the top eight today, we seem to have got the set up right. My job now is to do as well in qualifying tomorrow"

The McLaren Autosport Young Driver of the Year finalist was consistently at the sharp end of the test times, finally putting in his quickest lap within the last few minutes of the session.

Qualifying takes place tomorrow, Saturday and both races take place on Sunday afternoon.
