NEWS RELEASE 4 APRIL 2015
David Sutton and the SlideSports team laid down an early challenge today to their Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup rivals, claiming pole position for the opening round by a 0.6s margin. Sutton’s best lap of the 2.7-mile Cheshire circuit was 1m 51.636s, with Team HARD’s Howard Fuller his closest challenger at 1m 52.282s.
Last year’s vice champion Lucas Orrock will line up third on the grid ahead of double champion Phil House and Joe McMillan in his Cobra Engineering Scirocco. A late-session spin at Shell Oils flat-spotted Aaron Mason’s tyres; he’ll start sixth. Reigning champion Joe Fulbrook will go from 11th after suffering gearbox issues.
