Thruxton Qualifying Update - Bushell reinstated to Rd6 pole

Team Pyro’s Mike Bushell (Tunbridge Wells) has been reinstated onto pole position for the second of the weekend’s Courier Connections Renault UK Clio Cup races at Thruxton, round six, after a number of track limits penalties applied during qualifying today, Saturday, 3rd May, were rescinded.

While team-mate Lee Pattison (Scholes) was originally declared as the pole position starter for both rounds five and six, the West Yorkshireman will still begin the first of Sunday’s races from pole but will now line-up second on the grid for race two.
