Alex Davison set the fastest time in Practice 1

Alex Davison has recorded the fastest time in a second Townsville practice session that featured a mix of tyre compounds and driving talents.

With primary drivers in the bottom 50 percent of the championship invited to join the co-drivers for the second practice hit-out, a total of 24 cars took to the track.

Davison and IRWIN Racing’s Lee Holdsworth recorded fast early times on pre-marked soft compound tyres to sit atop the order for the majority of the 30 minutes.

Tim Slade, another to enjoy healthy pre-marked softs after being involved in the opening lap melee last time out at Hidden Valley, set the third fastest time.

Scott Pye impressed with fourth on hard compound tyres while Will Davison’s co-driver Steve Owen was fifth.

Scott McLaughlin, Jamie Whincup’s co-driver Paul Dumbrell, Alexandre Premat, Karl Reindler and Chaz Mostert completed the top 10.

Fast-man in opening practice, Steven Richards, was just 14th fastest after undertaking a single 19 lap run in the #5 Pepsi Max Ford.

By contrast, Ingall completed just seven laps after being garage bound for much of the 30 minutes undergoing major set-up adjustments.
