Ollie Taylor tops wet final test session at Silverstone

Team Pyro’s Ollie Taylor topped the time sheets in the final test session of the Friday at Silverstone, where the rain had picked up since the earlier session, with the times some five seconds off the pace earlier in the day.

Taylor, in the Team Pyro Honda Civic Type R FK2 TCR, was three-tenths of a second clear of Aiden Moffat in the Aiden Moffat Racing Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR, with Stewart Lines third fastest in his Maximum Motorsport-run Cupra TCR DSG.

Dan Lloyd, who was running with a transponder in his WestCoast Racing Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR for the first time today, was fourth fastest, just ahead of team-mate Andreas Bäckman.

Lewis Kent, who missed most of the first two sessions due to minor technical issue with his steering wheel, was out for the last session and was sixth quickest in his Essex & Kent Motorsport Hyundai i30 N TCR.

11 cars again took to the track, with VFR Racing’s Finlay Crocker opting out of the majority of the session and finishing in 11th in the new Honda Civic Type R FK8 TCR.

Darelle Wilson in the DW Racing Vauxhall Astra TCR and Olli Kangas in the LMS Racing Cupra TCR, won’t be out on track until tomorrow.
