Alex Lynn secured all three pole positions for the FIA European Formula Three Championship round of Brands Hatch this evening.

In a pair of split sessions, the Prema Powerteam racer bided his time, before launching toward the top of the time sheets.

Best laps of 41.098s and 41.189s respectively were enough to give the Englishman top spot for the opening two races, with Lynn going faster still (40.845s) in the final session of the day. “For the first part, I just put in a few bankers [laps] and then decided to go for it. I was watching ‘Seabiscuit’ the other day and in the film whenever they wanted to go fast he’d say ‘time to let her loose’ and that’s exactly what I did.”

With 29 cars taking part this weekend, it was decided to split qualifying into two groups in order to prevent traffic unnecessary traffic issues. For both qualifying sessions, fifteen running contested group A, before the final fourteen went out in Group B to secure the positions.
The fastest group from the qualifying sessions assume the left hand side of the grid for all tree races, with the slower group residing on the dirtier side.

Lynn’s Prema teammate Raffaele Marciello topped both Group A sessions, ensuring he lines up 2nd for all three events. The Italian failed to break the 41.3s barrier during the first qualifying session, but smashed that in the second qualifying stint with a best 40.836s.
It leaves another Prema competitor, Lucas Auer, 3rd for all events. Both Sven Muller and Mans Grenhagen surprised, with the former securing 4th for the two races and Grenhagen taking 6th for race three.

The Group A session of qualifying two ended prematurely when Michael Lewis (Mücke Motorsport) went off at Paddock Hill Bend. The American is conscoius, but has been taken to hospital for check ups.
