||Post qualifying interview with Max Chilton and Andy Meyrick
Max Chilton took his second pole position in a row on a extremely wet Rockingham track, finishing the red flag hit session 0.484s ahead of Atte Mustonen. The 17-year-old, who took his maiden pole position at Monza last weekend, revelled in the wet conditions to post the quickest lap just before the chequered flag was displayed. Andy Meyrick kept his 100% qualifying record in the National Class with his seventh pole position of the season ahead of Jay Bridger.
Marcus Ericsson set the early pace, setting a lap time of 1m32.987 ahead of Sergio Perez and Sam Abay, with Jaime Alguersuari going 0.027 second quicker than the Swede just before the red flags came out to stop the session following Hywel Lloyd's trip into the gravel at Pif Paf.
The session resumed once the Welshman's car had been dragged back onto the circuit, returning to the pits under its own steam. Chilton posted a 1m32.959 on his first flying lap to move into provisional pole position for all of 10 seconds before being demoted by Sam Abay and then Atte Mustonen in quick order.
The session was halted again as Alistair Jackson slid off the track at Pif Paf in the Ultimate Mygale. The session resumed with just six minutes remaining with Chilton posting the fastest lap of the session a lap before the chequered flag came out.
Round 7 will take place at 10:50 on Monday morning with qualifying for Round 8 taking place this afternoon at 14:15.
