Mostert leads by 3.9 so he needs to find some time.

Lead down to 2.9 so it's looking good for Waters with 6 laps to go.

They were both blaming each other post race.... as it happens it didnt affect the results as Brown managed to beat Davo by 6 seconds.

Randle was the victim of both the Mostert and Brown penalties. :haha:

Supercars released Cooper Murray's onboard from the Super2 accident. It ended up going to the MA tribunal and he got disqualified for reckless driving, which he accepted. Considering he was turning him for about half the straight and never backed off that seems like a fair enough decision.

Thanks I had missed that over the weekend. Warranted the dsq from the race at least. Lucky he didnt get dsqd from the meeting. It was pretty well premeditated with only one outcome.

Darwin Triple Crown event is this weekend.

Today we had practice and qualifying for tomorrows Shootout and subsequent race.

One wildcard entry for the weekend, a T8 entry for Cooper Murray, who will later in the year be sharing the T8 Supercheap car with Craig Lowndes.

Practice 1 saw current Championship leader Will Brown top the times.....he beat James Golding by a few hundredths and 3rd was JLB for Erebus

P1 Top 10 was as usual at Darwin with its short laptime, pretty compressed with just over a quarter of a second covering the top 10.

Top 10 in practice 1


1 Brown

2 Golding +0.015s

3 Le Brocq +0.051s

4 Heimgartner +0.057s

5 Waters +0.101s

6 Winterbottom +0.129s

7 Randle +0.139s

8 Payne +0.212s

9 Davison +0.246s

10 Jones +0.261s


A few notables were seemingly off the pace, Mostert and Brodie K being down in 16th and 17th.

P11-25

11 Feeney
12 De Pasquale
13 Percat
14 Evans
15 Hill
16 Mostert
17 Kostecki
18 Courtney
19 Stanaway
20 Reynolds
21 Fullwood
22 Wood
23 Slade
24 Murray
25 Love

Qualifying was a 15 minute session to qualify for the Shootout for Race 1 tomorrow.

Golding sets Provisional Pole.

Solid pace from Golding, fast in P1 and again went out and set the pace after the first qualy runs, before going out again later to go faster again and end up in provisional pole.. Again a few notables did not qualify for the shootout, Kostecki and Mostert again not getting through.

Again close, the entire field are split by just 0.89s. the top 10 within 0.35s.


Drivers who will be in tomorrow's Top 10 Shootout

1 Golding

2 Percat +0.074s

3 Winterbottom +0.151s

4 Feeney +0.205s

5 Brown +0.210s

6 De Pasquale +0.252s

7 Reynolds +0.265s

8 Slade +0.270s

9 Waters +0.283s

10 Heimgartner +0.339s


Which leaves the following drivers with their 11-25 starting positions locked in already.

WAU really missed the boat today, and no doubt a long debrief there tonight..... Mostert starting down in 22nd, with Ryan Wood 24th.

Grid slots P11-25

11 Kostecki
12 Le Brocq
13 Payne
14 Stanaway
15 Randle
16 Fullwood
17 Davison
18 Courtney
19 Hill
20 Jones
21 Evans
22 Mostert
23 Murray
24 Wood
25 Love

It was a 1-2 in the final practice for Triple Eight with Broc Feeney second fastest. It was a 1-2 in the final practice for Triple Eight with Broc Feeney second fastest.

The warm up lap is underway minus Brodie Kostecki, he is being pushed off the grid. Not sure what his dramas are but he wont start from the grid. He was given a bump start but the car was misfiring badly. Hopefully a quick fix.
