After the first few minutes of action, the majority of drivers where yet to set a true lap time and spent the first half of the session going wide and crossing over tyres.


Jake Hill claims provisional pole with five minutes remaining for all of a few seconds before his lap was disallowed for track limits violations.


Mikey Doble went purple (Fastest of anyone) in the middle sector before being dethroned by championship leader, Ash Sutton.


Doble wasn't going to make it easy for the Napa driver, he fought back and went top again by 0.061 of a second ahead of Colin Turkington and Ash Sutton.

Dan Cammish set the track alight with a scorching lap, but the race stewards quickly extinguish the Napa flame and disallowed his time for track limit offenses yet again.


Ingram showed what that Hyundai can do and goes third, demoting the BMW of Hill out of the top three.

The star of the first session, Sam Osborne, had both of his fast laps disallowed for track limits.


Cammish gets his third lap of the session taken away, with his teammate Osborne on track to improve as long as he keeps all four wheels on the black stuff.


Turkington improves, but not enough to take provisional pole off of Mikey Doble.


For the first time in 2023, The Napa Racing UK squad fail to lock out the pole position spot for race one on Sunday. They fell victim to the Power Maxed Racing Vauxhall Astra of Mikey Doble with a blistering 57.599, achieving his first ever BTCC pole.
