New Zealander Shane van Gisbergen has topped the times in the final practice session ahead of the Skycity Triple Crown at Hidden Valley this weekend.

The SP Tools Falcon driver edged out Jonathon Webb, who had led the majority of the session in his V8 Nights-supported Tekno Autosports Commodore.

Van Gisbergen’s lap, set on his final flyer for the session, has given Ford fans some hope, with the rest of the day’s play dominated by Holdens.
