Alex Ley tops red-flagged Snetterton practice

Alex Ley of Area Motorsport topped the practice session of the TCR UK season finale at Snetterton, a wet session which was red-flagged early on.

Adam Shepherd went off at Turn 1 on his second lap, bringing the red flags out.

Ley put his Hyundai i30 N TCR on top of the times with 1:25.450 and was close to three tenths faster than Honda driver Chris Smiley.

Jac Constable put his PMR prepared Cupra TCR in third place, 0.548 seconds from the top time.

Ley’s team-mate Bruce Winfield was fifth fastest, more than eight tenths adrift, with Callum Newsham in fifth, 0.887 seconds from P1.

Isaac Smith rounded off the top six for Race Car Consultants, just over one second slower than Ley.

Next up is the final qualifying session of 2022, starting at 10:40 local time/11:40 CEST.
