Franchitti makes mark on the grid

Dario Franchitti, of Scotland, managed to match the pace of his German team-mate Bernd Schneider in yesterday's free practice at Donington Park for the International Touring Car series. After lapping at more than 100mph, he made a slight error in the timed practice, however, and could only qualify third for today's fifth and sixth rounds. Schneider broke his own lap record with a time of 30.44sec and an average speed of 99.18mph.
