BRIDGMAN STORMS TO ROUND 10 POLE
Tim on top at Brands Hatch

Tim Bridgman put in an early banker lap in qualifying for the 10th round of the 2007 Visma Formula Palmer Audi Championship at Brands Hatch to secure his second pole position of the season.

Bridgman, who had already taken second on the grid for Round 9, set a time of 45.385 seconds on the Indy circuit in warm sunny conditions within the first few minutes, a time which couldn't be beaten by anyone else as the clock ran out.

Jason Moore will line up second on the grid, taking his first-ever FPA front row spot in an attempt to regain the form which brought him two podium finishes at Silverstone in April. Tom Bradshaw impressed to take third place ahead of Jack Clarke, who emulated his previous qualifying effort with fourth.

Stefan Wilson took fifth, with Matt Hamilton continuing to stun on his return to FPA with sixth on the grid. Jolyon Palmer will start seventh having been unable to recreate his pole form from earlier but, despite a late spin at Paddock Hill Bend, Palmer was just a tenth of a second off second-placed Moore. Richard Kent starts eighth, with Dominik Jackson and Alex Brundle rounding out the top 10.

Once again, points leader Luciano Bacheta had difficulty finding pace and could only manage 12th on the grid, albeit just half a second off pole position.
