Gordon Shedden on top again in Knockhill practice

Although unable to improve on his time set in the first session, the Scot was still 0.136 seconds quicker than Tom Chilton, who again finished second. Overall the session was a much more closely-fought affair, with 10 drivers being within a second of Shedden.

The strong performance of the NGTC cars continued in second practice – this time it was Frank Wrathall as the best driver in his Dynojet Toyota Avensis, setting the third fastest time towards the end of the session.
