Paul Rees (In2 Racing) was a strong third while Pepe Massot (Parr Motorsport) and Steven Liquorish (Team Parker Racing) set the standard in Pro-Am1 and Pro-Am2.Webster, who starts the second half of the season with a 10-point championship lead over Meadows, was fastest in both sessions and set his best lap on a new tyre run in the afternoon session. Rees was well in touch in third, while guest racer Richard Muscat (Redline Racing) was very impressive as he took fourth, right behind Rees.Massot was fifth overall and headed Pro-Am1 by seven-tenths of a second from another impressive series newcomer, Jordan Witt (Redline Racing). Liquorish was top of Pro-Am2 from Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport).Josh Webster (Redline Racing) first overall:“It’s been a really good day and it has been positive from the first lap. We’ve got the car handling really well and we had good pace this morning on old tyres. The car is awesome and if it rains for qualifying tomorrow I really like it here in the wet.”Michael Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing) second overall:“The car doesn’t feel comfortable to drive and we need to think about what we do. Of course, it could come to us if it rains for qualifying.”Paul Rees (In2 Racing) third overall:“That’s a good day. We’re working to close the gap to the leaders, which I’ve done. I think we’ve still got something in the bag and this will be my first time racing on the new Snetterton. They’ve done a good job with the track.”Pepe Massot (Parr Motorsport) first in Pro-Am1:“Not so good: we still have some time to find. I caught another car on the best lap for the new tyres and had to back off and start another lap.”Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) second in Pro-Am1:“It’s been a really good day. We looked at the data after the first session and that helped a great deal.”Steven Liquorish (Team Parker Racing) first in Pro-Am2:“That was better. Testing last week was a bit of a nightmare and I didn’t get much time in the car. Top marks to Stuart Parker and the team today and I felt confident even on the older tyres.”Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) second in Pro-Am2:“I put the new tyres on and I was aiming to really push on lap three when the tyres came in, but then I flat-spotted a tyre under braking for the Esses.”
