Intelligent Money British GT Championship
Donington Park
Saturday, October 16th 2021




Richard Williams and Sennan Fielding handed the Steller Motorsport team its second GT4 pole position of the season after fine early work from Williams laid the foundations for the pair’s first top spot since Silverstone back in June.


With the overall championship already settled in favour of Century Motorsport’s Will Burns and Gus Burton during the previous round at Oulton Park, Donington qualifying became an open battle, epitomised by the top six crews all being powered by different manufacturers.



Williams made the best of the early running to lead Jordan Collard’s RJN McLaren by just over four tenths, as Will Moore slotted the Academy Motorsport Ford Mustang into third.


With the bulk of the work done by his early effort, Williams bailed from the session with over a minute to go to save tyres, but would have had a worrying moment when Michael Benyahia lit up the timing screens late on to vault his #3 Team Rocket RJN McLaren into second, trimming Williams’ advantage to 0.243s in the process.




In truth the McLaren had looked a threat much earlier, but Benyahia had his previous best lap disallowed for track limits.



Fielding jumped in for the second qualifying element and never looked troubled by his Silver Cup rivals, producing the second-fastest time of the session to seal pole for Steller.



However, while the top spot was settled, the fastest time was not, and that – somewhat predictably – went the way of the rapid Jamie Caroline, who trimmed 0.2s off the qualifying lap record with his final effort, lifting Toyota Gazoo Racing UK’s Supra from 10th to fifth in the combined times, and claiming Pro-Am pole in the process.



Alain Valente built nicely on Benyahia’s work to leave their McLaren second on the grid, ahead of Moore and Matt Cowley’s Mustang. New champions Burns and Burton will line up fifth in their Century Motorsport BMW M4, which wears a new golden colour scheme this weekend.



Matt Topham and Darren Turner recovered from their free practice mishap to go seventh fastest – as well as second in Pro-Am – in the Newbridge Aston Martin, with Jordan Collard and James Kell’s #2 Team Rocket RJN McLaren rounding out the top eight.



British GT's Donington Decider goes green at 13:00 BST tomorrow. Watch live build-up on SRO's GT World YouTube channel and Sky Sports F1 from 12:35.
