As the morning F3 test session closed for lunch at Rockingham, Carlin's Jamie Green pitted in a hurry with an electrical fire on the car.

There was little damage but the team had not had a chance to inspect the cause although the extinguisher had been deployed.

On his first F3 run at the circuit, Green was running eleventh fastest on a 1 minute 30.196 seconds.

Alan Van der Merwe led the official timesheets with a 1m 28.968s followed by his team-mates Richard Antinucci on 1m 29.294s and Ronnie Bremer on 1m 29.336s giving Carlin a 1-2-3 in the dry conditions.

Next up was Fortec's Robert Dahlgren on 1m 29.556s followed by Danny Watts for HiTec (1m 29.660s) and Manor Motorsport's Clivio Piccione (1m 29.685s).

Afternoon results to follow later...
