FPW Racing’s Luke Hedger took pole position for the Monster Energy Motostar Championship by a comfortable 0.787 seconds ahead of Catherine Green in the sunshine of Oulton Park
The Championship leader, Hedger, posted his fastest lap in the first session earlier this afternoon and didn’t improve in the second session but it was enough to secure pole position, the second time this year he will start from pole at Oulton Park.
Catherine Green did enough to secure second ahead of Phillip Wakefield in third with Joe Irving managing to get onto the front row with his last lap of the second session.
Symitry IT Racing’s Harry Hartley also moved up during the final moments of the session as he jumped from eleventh to fifth but is 1.75 seconds behind Hedger. Callum Bey improved by 0.6 seconds from the first to the second session to take sixth ahead of comeback racer Connor Behan. Bradley Hughes rounds out the second row in eighth.
Repli-Cast UK’s Tom Carne was unable to hold onto his provisional front row start and slipped down to ninth ahead of Joe Francis and the man third in the Championship, Ryan Watson. Jon Vincent will start from twelfth for tomorrow’s race.
