Asmer Ends Carlin's Pole Run

Hitech Racing's Marko Asmer ended Carlin Motorsport's amazing run of 11 consecutive pole positions after securing the top spot for Sunday's second British F3 race at Silverstone

Asmer Ends Carlin's Pole Run

The Aldershot team has had either Charlie Kimball or Alvaro Parente on pole since Stephen Kane snatched the top spot in the dying seconds of Spa's second qualifying session in April. That race was ultimately cancelled due to bad whether, and the grid from that session will be used in the rescheduled race tomorrow.

Asmer lapped the Grand Prix circuit in 1:42.891 to beat runaway championship leader Parente to the position.

Fortec Motorsport Mike Conway secured third spot to help keep his Championship hopes alive, with Lola driver Danilo Dirani in fourth, ahead of Kimball and Kane.

Salvador Duran took his second National Class pole position of the day with 14th place overall.
