Jordan Love was fastest in Porsche Payce Carrera Cup Australia qualifying at Phillip Island by three hundredths of a second.
The Sonic Motor Racing driver beat team-mate Dale Wood to the quickest time with a late flying lap.
Wood narrowly led the times in the first runs on a 1:31.111s, 0.04s in front of Love.
The Perth-native bettered Wood’s time in the closing stages of the 20-minute session on a 1:30.7789s.
Wood improved on his own time but was unable to knock Love from the top, setting a time 0.03s slower.
Practice 2 fast man Nick McBride snagged third at less than a tenth further back with only one run, saving a set of tyres for the races, as Warren Luff jumped up to fourth at the chequered flag.
Michael Almond managed fifth with Territorian Thomas Maxwell sixth followed by Cameron Hill, Practice 1 pace-setter David Wall, Cooper Murray and Josh Hunt.
Liam Talbot was the best of the Pro-Am runners in 11th.
Race 1 for Carrera Cup Australia, the first of the season to count towards the Endurance Cup, kicks off on Saturday at 1120 local time/AEST.
