Dumbrell takes first pole for race two

Dumbrell went to the top of the times just before halfway through the session before other drivers went faster, but reclaimed the top spot with two minutes remaining in the session.

Alongside him will be fellow FPR driver Mark Winterbottom, with Lee Holdsworth in third, while fourth and fifth are the two drivers Winterbottom is chasing in the championship, Jamie Whincup and James Courtney.

Sixth is Whincup's team-mate Craig Lowndes, with Jason Bright, Michael Caruso, Fabian Coulthard with one of his better qualifying results for the year and Will Davison completing the top ten.

Just missing out on the top ten are Rick Kelly and Russell Ingall in 11th and 12th, while Holden Racing Team's Garth Tander ended up even further down the order in 20th place - although less than eight tenths of a second off pole position.

Why replacing Supercars' GOAT with a teenager is worth the risk for T8

On the face of it, picking an 18-year-old rookie to replace arguably the greatest Supercars driver of all time is a risky move. But as Jamie Whincup takes up a team principal role and hands his car to Broc Feeney, it's one that he is confident will be rewarded in the fullness of time - time which wasn't afforded to Whincup in his early days
