The Team BMR Subaru driver was kicked out of the results an overboosting issue on the Levorg GT, a decision that hands pole position to the Handy Motorsport driver Rob Austin.

Jake Hill, who set the sixth fastest time, was also kicked out of the standings for a rear wing angle compliance.

Austin said: “Although this is not the way you want to get a pole position, we will take it.

"We had a car that could challenge for pole and we were quick throughout the session. I am delighted with the lap we pulled out of the bag at the end.

“During the mid-season red flag, I had a word with myself because I was overdriving. After that I relaxed, got the lap and we are in a really good place. We have a good chance tomorrow.”

Both Sutton and Hill will now start from the back of the 32-car grid for Sunday's first race.
