Donington Park: Cook completes practice dominance at Donington Park

Triple Eight Racing MG's Josh Cook has completed a clean-sweep of the practice running after once again sending his MG6 GT to the top of pile at Donington Park.
Triple Eight Racing MG's Josh Cook lays down an impressive marker ahead of this afternoon's British Touring Car Championship qualifying session after dominating practice at Donington Park.

The MG6 GT driver has emerged from the practice running as the favourite to take pole position later this afternoon having topped both of the 40 minute sessions around the former Grand Prix venue.

Cook saved his best effort until last during the final session, denying Brands Hatch pole-sitter and race winner Tom Ingram another free-practice crown.

West Surrey Racing's Sam Tordoff also shuffled Ingram's Toyota Avensis down to third after producing a late flurry of pace to go second behind Cook's MG.

Laser Tools Racing's Aiden Moffat secured the first of his breakthrough results here at Donington last season and fourth position in FP2 indicates the young Scot could be set for a repeat result.

Moffat's Mercedes A-Class was just 0.030's clear of reigning champion Gordon Shedden in fifth while Mat Jackson was the top Motorbase Performance runner in sixth.

Triple Eight's Ashley Sutton had held fourth up until the business end of the running but was later demoted to seventh, but still confirming the prowess of the MG package.

Eurotech's Jeff Smith was another to set an eye-catching time in eighth ahead of BKR's Aron Smith and West Surrey Racing's Rob Collard in ninth and tenth.
