Juno & Wolf share poles at Donington
A rare break in Britain’s damp summer offered the SPEED EuroSeries competitors a chance to qualify in dry conditions on the Donington Park track on Saturday morning, and it provided the series with an equally rare sight of Italy’s Ivan Bellarosa (Wolf GB08) not dominating the qualifying.
Darren Burke (Juno CN2012) kept the Italian honest throughout the session, with just one tenth of a second separating them after 45 minutes. Bellarosa was quickest overall and on pole for the first race of the weekend on Saturday evening, but with the car’s second fastest lap deciding the grid position for the second race, Burke claimed pole for race 2. Series returnees Jono Coleman and Nigel Greensall placed third for both races in the RLR Msport Ligier JS51.
Race 1 starts at 17.00hrs Saturday. Clouds currently building over the circuit…
