Harris continues to set SuperUtes pace
Ryal Harris has maintained his status as pace-setter in SuperUtes by topping second practice on the Gold Coast.
The margin from first to second was not quite as great as in Practice 1, when Harris was more than a second faster than the rest, but he was still comfortably on top.
The series leader improved the benchmark to 1:33.4419s, almost 0.3s faster than the morning’s opening session, in his Peters Motorsport Mazda BT-50.
Tom Alexander was again second in the Ross Stone Racing Holden Colorado, but this time 0.4398s off Harris’ best time.
The New Zealander nosed into the tyre wall entering the main straight during the session but appeared to not cause major damage.
The Sieders Racing Team Mitsubishi Tritons of Cameron Crick and Mick Sieders were third and fourth respectively, from pseudo team-mate Luke van Herwaarde in a Western Sydney Motorsport Toyota Hilux.
Craig Woods (WSM Hilux), who lost the series lead last time out at Bathurst, was seventh-fastest, one position behind Aaron Cameron in the second Peters BT-50.
Eighth went to 16-year-old Tomas Gasperak in the Team 18 Holden Colorado.
Armor All Qualifying starts this afternoon at 1515 local time/1615 AEDT.
