Paul Dumbrell has continued his hot form, taking his first-career pole for Race 24 of the V8 Supercars Championship Series at Sandown Raceway.

After his breakthrough victory in yesterday’s race, The Bottle-O Racing Falcon driver took a narrow pole position from his Ford Performance Racing stablemate Mark Winterbottom.

The Dumbrell/Winterbottom FPR combination finished first and third yesterday.

Fujitsu Racing’s Lee Holdsworth will start from third on the grid ahead of championship rivals Jamie Whincup (TeamVodafone) and James Courtney (Jim Beam Racing).

Whincup’s team-mate Craig Lowndes will start the 200km race sixth ahead of Jason Bright (Trading Post Racing), Michael Caruso (Fujitsu Racing), Fabian Coulthard (Bundaberg Red Racing) and Will Davison (Toll Holden Racing Team).

Davison’s Toll team-mate Garth Tander qualified down in 20th place after the team worked for most of the night and morning repairing his Commodore from its heavy incident yesterday. CLICK HERE for more on that accident.

Race 24 of the V8 Supercars Championship Series includes the soft tyre and kicks off at 3.05pm this afternoon.
