Harris beats Crick to Ipswich SuperUtes pole

Ryal Harris

Ryal Harris beat Cameron Crick to pole position in Armor All Qualifying for the SuperUtes at the Century Batteries Ipswich SuperSprint.

Crick (Mitsubishi Triton), Toby Price (Mitsubishi Triton) and Tom Alexander (Isuzu D-Max) exchanged fastest laps in the first five minutes of the 20-minute session.

Crick was the first to dip into the 1:27s, laying down a 1:27.889s, which was then bettered by Harris (Mazda BT-50) who went 0.24s quicker.

With no improvements later in the session, Harris’ 1:27.640 sealed him the top spot, with his effort four seconds faster than last year’s pole position time, a 1:31.046s set by Alexander.

Crick remained second, followed by Alexander, Ben Walsh (Toyota Hilux) and Price, while Steven Richards was sixth (Holden Colorado).

Charlotte Poynting (Mitsubishi Triton) had a strange spin on the exit of Turn 2, rejoining to the asphalt without any issues.

The first race of the weekend for the SuperUtes takes place at 1220 local time/AEST.
