Van der Ende flies in Palmer Audi

The Team Brask backed Dutchman had an awful time in the last meeting at Brands Hatch, crashing in both qualifying sessions and suffering poor luck in the races.

'I'm very pleased,' he said. 'The guys did an excellent job repairing and setting up the car and I'm pleased to get this result for them.'

Irishman Derek Hayes dominated the wet second qualifying session, taking pole by a huge 0.655s margin.

'I put a set-up on the car that I knew I would be happy with and nailed it from the start,' he said. 'I was driving at 110%.'

Tim Mullen is on the outside of the front row for both races. Damien Faulkner will start race one from third and race two from fifth, while series leader Justin Keen qualified fourth in both sessions.
