Anton De Pasquale and Shane van Gisbergen have taken pole position for tonights two Supercar races under lights at Sydney Motorsport Park.
The grid for tonight’s two races were decided by a pair of 10-minute qualifying sessions, both of which saw drivers heading out on a wet track.
De Pasquale claimed pole for the first race by about half a second after taking all three poles last weekend.
Shane van Gisbergen qualified second for the first race this afternoon, despite running wide at turn one early in the session.
The first session saw all but one of the 26 cars in the field heading out on wet tyres, with Todd Hazlewood the only driver to brave slick tyres, before coming back in to switch to wet tyres.
Cam Waters was sitting third in the session when he ran off the track at turn one, briefly getting stuck in the gravel trap, Though he was able to get out of the gravel as the red flag was brought out.
As Waters brought out the red flag, he wasn’t able to head back out in the session, as well as losing the lap time he had set, leaving him to start today’s first race from 17th.
Andre Heimgartner set a good lap in his Kelly Grove Racing Mustang, finishing the session in eighth, with fellow Kiwi Fabian Coulthard improving on yesterday’s qualifying to finish in 18th.
Van Gisbergen took pole for the final race of the weekend, backing up his race win last night.
By the start of the second session, the rain had eased with conditions improving through qualifying.
‘SVG’ took pole over Chaz Mostert by a tenth and a half of a second. Though Mostert’s team is under investigation for breaching parc ferme conditions between the two sessions.
Heimgartner had another strong session finishing in fifth with Luke Youlden filling in for David Reynolds also sitting just outside the top ten in both sessions.
Yesterday’s pole-sitter Will Brown also run off the track and into the gravel at turn one though he was able to get the Erebus car out of the gravel before the red flag was brought out.
Fabian Coulthard will start slightly further back in the final race after qualifying in 22nd.
The first race will start at 6.35 pm, with the second getting underway at 9.30 pm tonight.
