Will Brown will start this evening’s opening race of the Tasmania SuperSprint from pole position, with Andre Heimgartner the best of the Kiwis in fifth.
A blistering 50.8786 lap was enough for Brown to top Jack Le Brocq, the gap to the second spot an impressive two-tenths of a second, contradicting the previously tight gaps in today’s practice sessions.
Championship leader Brodie Kostecki will start from fourth on the grid, while second-placed Chaz Mostert was knocked out in Q2 and will start 11th. Shane van Gisbergen, who is third in the standings, starts ninth having aborted his final flyer as the chequered flag flew, a yellow flag at the hairpin jeopardizing his run.
Cam Waters was the sole Mustang to make Q3, managing to go third fastest, while Broc Feeney starts next to Heimgartner on the third row.
Truck Assist Racing have found some real pace at Symmons Plains, with Cameron Hill qualifying as the top rookie in seventh overall. James Golding starts eighth, while Scott Pye starts next to van Gisbergen on the fifth row.
Matt Payne rounds out the Kiwi contingent and will start 16th.
It was a difficult session for Shell V-Power Racing, with Anton de Pasquale facing mechanical difficulties early on and only recovering for 22nd while Will Davison copping a four-place grid penalty for impeding Feeney to be relegated from 16th to 20th.
Race 10 of the Supercars season begins at 5.50 pm tonight and will be shown live on Sky Sport 5.
