Jamie Derbyshire and Shaun Balfe will line up on pole position for round seven of the British GT Championship at Oulton Park in Cheshire, after dominating the qualifying session ahead of the 75-minute race tomorrow (July 13).

The Balfe Motorsport Team have been quickest all weekend and a flying lap of 1m40.9s was almost half a second quicker than their nearest rival, giving the team their third pole position of the season. Balfe was understandably happy with the time.

"I'm really pleased with the time and the car." He said, "The track was getting really slippery out there as the session went on as it was getting hotter. There were a number of cars that were running wide. It was definitely as fast as we were going to go!" He added.

"We came here hoping to be fastest, especially after being quick at Castle Combe last time out. The car is working well and the team have been doing a fantastic job here this weekend so we'll see how it goes tomorrow." Said Balfe.

The race is scheduled to start at 14:35 tomorrow afternoon with the team looking forward to the 75-minute event.
