Connery could not keep up with Minor over the race distance, despite setting the fastest lap of the race and weekend.
“It was definitely a bit tricky out there,” said Connery, who drives the No. 91 CC Autosport/James Lee Racing Van Diemen and will start from pole on Saturday’s race due to his fastest race lap. “I got a great start and thought I had it but Tim’s Citation is just unbelievably fast in a straight line.”
Ferrucci was third in his first start for HP-Tech Motorsport in the No. 10 Van Diemen, matching his qualifying effort and driving a smart race in tricky conditions.
“It was an interesting and fun, great race,” said Ferrucci. “It was a good first experience in the F2000 car. It has been all about getting used to the track.”
David Grant was third for the Polestar Racing Group, in yet another strong performance for the 2012 Atlantic Champion in the No. 29 Van Diemen.
Roberto Lorena completed the top five in the second HP-Tech car, battling back from a sizeable qualifying crash that left the team quite busy between the sessions.
