Rockingham - Free practice (1)

17 September 2011

Frank Wrathall topped the times in first Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship practice at Rockingham.

His NGTC-spec Toyota was faster than Jason Plato despite a boost reduction and increased base weight for this weekend, with Alex MacDowall in third.

Points leader Gordon Shedden was down in eighth place while debutant Michael Caine was 15th and the returning Tony Gilham 24th - albeit in a new car after his switch to Geoff Steel Racing.

Jeff Smith suffered a number of spins while Lea Wood and Dan Welch both faced technical issues...
