Smith heads Division 2 Warm Up as Trucks hit the track at Brands

Saturday, April 21 2012

Tonbridge racer Dave Smith was fastest in the opening Warm Up session for Division 2 machines in the Delphi British Truck Racing Championship.

Smith headed Paul Clark early on in the short warm-up session as the drivers adjusted to the track, now dry after showery conditions during Friday's test sessions. Visiting Dutchman Marco Donk split the pair after five minutes.

Division 2 Championship leader Oly Janes provided a late challenge to Smith, whose early form was proving very tough to beat. Indeed the Scania driver tried hard to close the gap, getting it down to a tenth but was unable to head the timesheet.

Donk remained in third, whilst Steven Taylor and newcomer John Powell relegated Clark to sixth place, ahead of Brian Burt, Frans Smit and Adam Bint.

The Division 1 Warm Up will take place at 10:15.
