BSB Brands Hatch - Qualifying Results

Shakey Haslam Brands Hatch 2017

James Ellison claimed pole position and the fastest lap of the Brands Hatch Indy circuit in todays Datatag Extreme Qualifying session.

The Lancaster man set a blistering lap of 44.728 around the 1.2 mile Indy Circuit to snatch pole from JG Speedfit Kawasaki teammates Mossey and Haslam. 

Local man Shayne ‘Shakey’ Byrne will head up the second row with Hopkins and O’Halloran alongside him.

Tyco BMW’s Christian Iddon will start from the third row with Brookes (P8) and Laverty (P9) in tow.

Talking ahead of tomorrow’s opening 30 lap Ellison said: “It’s going to be a tough race, it always is with these boys, but we’re definitely in a good place to get the McAMS Yamaha on the podium and can’t wait to put on a good show for all the fans.”
