Nick Percat has recorded the quickest time in the second and final practice session for the Dunlop Series at Winton prior to Saturday’s all-important qualifying session.

The Walkinshaw Racing Holden driver recorded a 1:24.97s best on his 17th and final lap of the 40 minute hit-out.

The time proved a full 0.44s quicker than previous fast-man Luke Youlden, who is enjoying his first outing in Matthew White Motorsport’s FG model Ford Falcon this weekend.

Ash Walsh joined Percat in setting his fastest time on his final attempt to secure third fastest ahead of points leader Chaz Mostert.

The Ford Performance Racing pilot had spent much of the session on top before being relegated in the final 10 minutes.

George Miedecke, Rodney Jane, Dale Wood, Elliot Barbour, Geoff Emery and Glenn Wood completed the top 10.

Scott McLaughlin and Scott Pye, both title rivals to Mostert and Percat ahead of the final two rounds, were 12th and 13th respectively.
