Mike Gardner dominates Heritage qualifying at Cadwell Park

Two-time Classic FF1600 champion Mike Gardner qualified on pole position for the latest round of the Zig Zag Lighting Heritage Formula Ford championship after dominating qualifying at Cadwell Park.

Gardner, a podium finisher at the previous round at Snetterton, topped the 15-minute session throughout, setting a best time of 1m35.485s in his Crossle.

Dutchman Jaap Blijleven, who is currently second in the championship, qualified in second place in a Reynard, 1.810s adrift of Gardner.

With championship leader Ollie White not competing this weekend, today’s two races represent an opportunity for Blijleven to reduce the 55-point deficit.

Tom Roark managed the third fastest time driving his Van Diemen after being just being pipped to a front-row start by Blijleven in the closing stages.

Class B championship leader Scott Guthrie slotted his Crossle 32F into an impressive fourth position just a tenth in arrears of Roark’s effort.

Christopher Stones (Van Diemen) and Neil Hunt (Mondiale) will start on the third row of the grid after qualifying fifth and sixth respectively.

Simon Davey qualified in seventh in a Van Diemen, with Ian Fernihough a further 0.6s behind in eighth in his Swift.

Don Boyack will start ninth ahead of fellow Van Diemen drivers Graham Woodin and Tom Roark.
