Bio Fuelled Aston Claims Pole for First 2-Hour Race

The number 1 Barwell Motorsport Aston Martin DBRS9 of Jonny Cocker and Paul Drayson will head the grid for tomorrows 2-hour race. With Cocker at the wheel, the bio fuelled Aston Martin powered around the 1.9 mile Snetterton track in a time of 1m09.897 in the second 15-minute session, 0.067 seconds faster than the CiM Ferrari 430 of Hector Lester and Stephane Daoudi.

Jonny Cocker and Paul Drayson have scored three podium finishes from four races but, unlike their Barwell Motorsport team mates, have yet to step onto the top step of the podium in 2007.

Jonny Cocker: "With the two hour race this weekend it meant that everyone could run two sets of tyres in qualifying. Looking at the times there is quite a variation between the sessions and with my first run I wasn't very happy, I didn't get the best out of the tyres so having another go in the second session definitely helped. So really pleased to be on pole, a fantastic result and definitely the perfect place to start from. Having EEMS sponsoring the weekend and having their car on pole is absolutely perfect."

The GTC pole went to the RSS Performance Porsche 996 of Graeme Mundy and Jamie Smyth. The Beechdean Motorsport Ferrari missed both 15-minute qualifying sessions due to a gearbox problem which the team reported would be fixed before tomorrow's race.
