Parente on Pole Again at Knockhill

Alvaro Parente took pole position for the fifth round of the British F3 International Series, ahead of tomorrow's race at Knockhill in Scotland

Parente on Pole Again at Knockhill

The Carlin Motorsport driver continues to do the best possible catch-up job after missing the first two races of the season.

But the Portuguese has got points leader Mike Conway (Fortec Motorsport) alongside him on the grid for the race on the small and tight track near Edinburgh. The pair of them shared the wins at the last meeting at Croft.

Third on the grid will be Stephen Kane, who is the first Lola representative on the timesheets. Like most drivers, he complained of traffic problems. Donington Park winner Danilo Dirani (in the other Lola) is again struggling with Knockhill, and was only tenth.

The session was interrupted by a red flag when National Class front-runner Salvador Duran had an accident in his P1 Motorsport Dallara-Mugen. Others to fall into the scenery late in the session were Ronayne O'Mahony, Nick Jones, Charles Hollings (who was fastest in National Class) and Jonathan Kennard.
