Le Brocq, Fullwood crack 2:05s in Super2 Practice 2
Jack Le Brocq has slashed the Dunlop Super2 Series practice record in Practice 2 at Mount Panorama.
MW Motorsport team-mates Le Brocq (#28 Nissan Altima) and Bryce Fullwood (#16 Nissan Altima) both went into the 2:05s bracket despite light showers briefly falling midway through the 40-minute session.
Le Brocq was the first to dip under the old practice record with a 2:06.2032 inside the final seven minutes.
He lowered the time to a 2:05.6465s next time around, knocking nearly 0.9s off Garry Jacobson’s old benchmark set 12 months ago.
Fullwood, who was fastest in Practice 1 a day earlier, went second-fastest late in the session and faster again just before the chequered flag, closing to within 0.3s of his team-mate.
Todd Hazelwood (#35 Matt Stone Racing VF Commodore) glanced the wall between The Cutting and Reid Park halfway through the session, but still went on to take the fastest lap until being bumped by the two Nissans.
Series leader Paul Dumbrell (#88 Eggleston Motorsport VF Commodore) was next-fastest, and Kurt Kostecki took the #55 VF Commodore he is sharing with brother Jake to fifth-fastest.
Jack Perkins (#4 Dragon Motor Racing Commodore) survived a scare at the top of The Esses before clocking a time good enough for sixth-fastest.
Rounding out the top 10 were Macauley Jones (#14 Brad Jones Racing VF Commodore), Will Brown (#38 Eggleston Motorsport VF Commodore), Andrew Jones (#8 Brad Jones Racing VF Commodore), and Nathan Morcom (#54 Eggleston Motorsport Commodore).
The first third of the session was effectively lost when Matt Chahda hit the wall heading up to Reid Park before any of the 15 cars could set a lap time.
While Chahda drove his #18 VF Commodore away from the scene, he failed to proceed past Conrod Straight and had to be retrieved by the flatbed.
Armor All Qualifying is coming up today at 1505 local time/AEDT.
