in the Falken Tyres Porsche and David Brabham in the BE Racing Ferrari
were first and second fastest this morning, ahead of the Pretty

Tony Quinn was
next in another 911, the VIP Pet Foods car, with Allan Simonsen
in the Lamborghini and John Bowe in the big Bimmer next.
VJ Angelo was an outstanding
11th in his 23.

the BE Ferrari has an electrical issue this morning.
