NEWS RELEASE 31 MAY 2015
Championship leader David Sutton will start the first race of the Silverstone weekend from pole position following technical checks on the cars which contested yesterday’s Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup qualifying session.
Two cars, including that of Team HARD driver Michael Epps, which had set the best time of the session, were excluded from the results of the session after power tests undertaken at the championship rolling road found them to be over permitted power levels. The other exclusion was for Joe McMillan’s Cobra Engineering Scirocco; both will start from the back of the grid with a 10-second penalty.
The revised grid will see Sutton’s SlideSports Scirocco go from the pole in round seven; it is Sutton’s fourth pole of the season. He will start ahead of the Team HARD Golf GTI of Howard Fuller and the PH Motorsport Scirocco of Phil House.
Round seven of the Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup is scheduled for an 0955 start with round eight following at 1725 – live on Motors TV.
