The signs were promising today for Team BOC during the 2 hour practice session at the new Hamilton street circuit. Andrew Jones ran as high as third but in the critical final stages of practice intense traffic thwarted his potential for a strong outcome.
Bradley Jones, Co-Owner:
Quote: ?A little dissapointing to have the two cars in the top 10 for the majority of the practice session. To just miss out at the end is frustrating. Andrew unfortunately did not get the chance to utilise his new tyres. Tonight the team will be busy working on a game plan for speed.?
Andrew Jones,Team BOC #12:
Combined Practice Position: 21st
Total Laps: 36
Practice Quote: ?I like the circuit but it?s very bumpy. I was comfortably spending the majority of my time in the top10. Unfortunately my fast run on greens (new tyres) was hindered by traffic and I only had a two lap window to get the most out of them...?
