Kiwi Shane van Gisbergen set the second fastest time at Bathurst as Lee Holdsworth scored a surprise provisional ARMOR ALL Pole at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
“The qualifying session was awesome,” commented van Gisbergen. “Looking at the times everyone was so close which is pretty cool, and well done to Lee (Holdsworth), it’s great to see him up there qualifying on top.
“For us, we’re just getting better and better, and our car overall is getting better and better too. We’ve had some really cool laps around here, and it would’ve been interesting to see what happened in that last run if it wasn’t for the rain at the top of the mountain.
“Every run in qualifying we were sort of near the front, in that third or fourth position, and then popped up into second in that last run which was pretty cool. I’m looking forward to the shootout tomorrow.”
Third fastest was Scott McLaughlin with Cameron Waters fourth.
Saturday sees two more practice sessions, at 9:10am and 11:35am local time, will precede the 5:05pm Shootout.
