The first two V8 Supercars practice sessions have been run at the spectacular Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.

The first two sessions were only contested by 14 cars with drivers who finished in the bottom 50 percent of last year’s V8 Supercars Championship Series field.

All cars get five sets of brand-new Dunlop control tyres for this weekend’s round, with cars not allowed to run on old rubber.

Irwin Racing’s Alex Davison ended the two sessions on top, followed by Rock Racing’s Jason Bargwanna and DJR Ford driver Jonathon Webb.
