Engel Claims First Pole of 2007 Season

 

Carlin Motorsport's Maro Engel took the top spot in the first qualifying session of the 2007 season, one hundredth of a second ahead of Raikkonen Robertson Racing's Stephen Jelley, with Sebastian Hohenthal (Fortec Motorsport) and Marko Asmer (Hitech Racing) claiming 3rd and 4th respectively.

Engel took set his fastest lap early on in the session which was halted after just 13 minutes when Leo Mansell (Fortec Motorsport) went off at Old Hall causing a lot of damage to his Dallara Mercedes.

The session was restarted once the car was recovered but the top three position remained the same for the final 17 minutes, with Marko Asmer and Sam Bird (Carlin Motorsport).  Reigning Formula BMW Champion Niall Breen (Carlin Motorsport) will head up row 3 on his British F3 debut. 

In the National Class Sergio Perez (TSport) claimed pole position with a time that was good enough for 19th overall and three places ahead of his nearest rivals 'Frankie' Cheng (Performance Racing) and Mike Meadows (Master Motorsport).
