Andrew Howard's Beechdean Aston Martin and Allan Simonsen's Rosso Verde Ferrari shared the pole honours this afternoon (Sat) at Brands Hatch in qualifying for the concluding rounds of the Avon Tyres British GT Championship.

Howard's 1m 31.393s lap of the Brands Grand Prix circuit was more than a tenth of a second fastest than anyone else could manage in the first qualifying session, and brought Howard his first-ever British GT pole. It was a double celebration for the Barwell Motorsport team, for their Invitation Class Ginetta G50Z, in the hands of Leo Machitski, went second fastest.

"The Aston was made for this circuit," said a delighted Howard. "It's an Aston track and the car is just awesome around here..."
