Jacobson pips Rullo in Super2 Prac 2 at Symmons
Garry Jacobson has edged Alex Rullo as the MW Motorsport Altimas finished one-two-four in Friday practice for the Dunlop Super2 Series at Symmons Plains.
Jacobson got in two flyers just before a late red flag to move to the top of the timesheets ahead of Rullo, with Paul Dumbrell finishing third in the 40-minute session.
Practice 2 began in similar circumstances to Practice 1 with Dumbrell and Chris Pither trading top spot, before Adam Marjoram (#15 Image Racing VF Commodore) was the first to make his mark on a new set of tyres.
Marjoram held first position for approximately five minutes before Dean Fiore (#23 MW Motorsport Nissan Altima) emulated him in setting back-to-back fastest laps around 30 minutes in.
More cars began to take green tyres as the final 10 minutes played out with Rullo (#62 Nissan Altima), who had three earlier excursions in the grass at Turn 6, taking two flyers to usurp his team-mate.
Jacobson (#26 Nissan Altima) similarly went second and then first shortly after, taking over the Super2 practice record at Symmons Plains.
A red flag was shortly called for Macauley Jones’ (#14 Brad Jones Racing VF Commodore) off at the Hairpin, just as Dumbrell had re-entered the circuit with green tyres on the #88 Eggleston Motorsport VF Commodore.
However, he was first out of pit lane when the session restarted with just over a minute remaining and made the control line to start a timed lap mere seconds before the chequered flag started flying.
Dumbrell managed to break up the MWM trifecta by bumping Fiore to fourth, with Jake Kostecki (#56 Kostecki Brothers VF Commodore) fifth.
Marjoram ended up sixth, ahead of Bryce Fullwood, Brodie Kostecki, rookie Zane Goddard, and Shae Davies.
Practice 1 fast man Pither was 11th in the second session, though it is believed that he did not get a proper run on green tyres in the #44 Garry Rogers Motorsport VF Commodore.
Will Brown was also trapped by the red flag when he was waiting in pit lane with new rubber.
He had earlier missed a large chunk of the session as Eggleston Motorsport effected major set-up changes to the on the #38 VF Commodore in an attempt to get the car to turn better through the Hairpin
Super2 is next on track for the two, 10-minute qualifying sessions which will set the grid for Races 1 and 2 respectively tomorrow from 1215 local time /AEST.
