Oliver White dominates Heritage qualifying at Snetterton

Championship leader Oliver White secured a dominant pole position for the first race of the Zig Zag Lighting Ltd Heritage Formula Ford Championship at Snetterton.

Qualifying took place in wet conditions that improved throughout, with White setting an early benchmark of 2m35.726s, before improving his time to a 2m33.926 by the end of the session, a huge 6.288 seconds clear of the rest.

Two-time Classic FF1600 champion Mike Gardner will start on the front row after spending most of the session in second place, setting a best time of 2m40.214s

Peter Lucas was third fastest, a further 2s behind in his Van Diemen, despite going straight on at Oggies corner early in the session.

A close battle for fourth developed in the closing stages between Neil Hunt and Simon Davey. Hunt was fourth fastest for most of the session, before Davey moved ahead on his final lap. But Hunt went faster still on his last lap to take back fourth by 0.267s.

Class B leader Scott Guthrie lines up in sixth in his Crossle 25f, a further 2s back, with Alan Fincham seventh in a Van Diemen.

Graham Woodin qualified in eighth ahead of David Roark, with Ben Hadfield completing the field in tenth.
