British GT4 - Fielding steals the show at Brands Hatch

British GT4 - Fielding steals the show at Brands Hatch

10.09.2022: Williams and Fielding scored their fourth GT4 pole position of the season during qualifying at Brands Hatch, but they were made to work right until the final moments before securing top spot.


Williams and Fielding scored their fourth GT4 pole position of the season during qualifying at Brands Hatch, but they were made to work right until the final moments before securing top spot.





Williams finished the first half of qualifying in fourth, which left Fielding with a 0.4s deficit to make up. But he delivered in spades by setting the fastest time of a disrupted second session to snatch top spot by just over a tenth.


GT4 was also incredibly competitive across the field, a point underlined by as many different manufacturers filling the top six grid slots.


When the opening qualifying segment went green, a host of drivers rotated the lead time with first Jamie Orton going fastest in Team Parker Racing’s Porsche before his time was bettered by Moh Ritson’s Paddock Motorsport McLaren, Edgar’s Toyota Racing UK GR Supra and then Day’s R Racing Aston Martin.


As the times tumbled, Day went faster still to make provisional pole his own before Freddie Tomlinson produced a superb late effort to move the Assetto Motorsport Ginetta into second and just 0.109s shy of the Aston. Edgar held on to third in the Toyota, with Williams snatching fourth on his final flying lap in the Audi. Orton was fifth, ahead of Marco Signoretti in the Academy Ford Mustang.


With just over a tenth of a second in it the second half was always going to be tight, but things were made even more unpredictable when a red flag stoppage reduced the fight for pole to a two-lap sprint.



Fielding took over the Audi from Williams and immediately set about closing the four-tenth gap to top spot, with his first flying lap briefly putting him out front before Collard built on Edgar’s strong start to go fastest on combined times in the Toyota. Miller then beat the lot of them, reclaiming provisional pole for R Racing right before running was interrupted when Chris Salkeld suffered an off out of Stirling’s that left Century’s #9 BMW stranded across the track.


When the clean-up was complete and the session resumed, there were barely five minutes left to run once the frontrunners got up to speed, and Fielding pushed like mad to try and find the few fractions of a second that would make the difference. With a clear track ahead he managed to extend his advantage over Day to just over half-a-second, which decisively put the Audi on top overall.


Collard/Edgar’s Toyota will start tomorrow’s race third, ahead of Seb Hopkins/Orton’s Porsche 718 Cayman. Matt Cowley improved the Mustang he shares with Signoretti to fifth, just ahead of Tomlinson/Joe Wheeler’s Ginetta.



It was so nearly seven different marques in a row, but Topham and Turner’s Newbridge Motorsport Aston Martin ended the streak by improving to seventh – and Pro-Am pole – late on at the expense of Century’s other BMW shared by Jack Brown and Will Burns.



This year’s penultimate Intelligent Money British GT Championship race goes green at 13:30 BST tomorrow. Watch it live on GT World’s YouTube channel.
