Excellent, lets hope the speed is sustained tomorrow. AER must have pulled quite a bit of horsepower out of the bag to get the times down as well. :D

AER seeems to have been BEAVERING away and found alot of Horses. Read in Autosport that Reidy hoped they had found more power. Reidy thought they were about 30 bhp down on those things from Luton. The answer is they have found the horses.

Reidy for a brace of wins at Silverstone?

Excellent news...

Superb result, but totally agree that tomorrow's times are what really counts. It was nice for the team to put one over the Vauxhalls, and Warren isn't that far behind either.

Roll on Sunday for a brace of poles (and England beating Sweden!) and roll on Monday for a brace of wins?! Here's hoping!!!!!

Actually, what would be nice is for all 4 cars to finish so we can close the gap on Vauxhall in the Manufacturers Championship - MG are currently on 80 points to Vauxhall's 171 points!

Will be there on Monday to add my support - football takes priority tomorrow I'm afraid!

Qualifying!

Although they may have found more power - we are back on min ballast! It would have been nice if we could have stuck it to them at Thruxton and then set fastest lap in practiceat Silverstone! :)
