Provisional pole for Brodie Kostecki after frantic Sandown qualifying

Repco Supercars Championship leader Brodie Kostecki has taken provisional pole after qualifying at Sandown as title contender Shane van Gisbergen failed to make this afternoon’s Top 10 Shootout.

Kostecki set a time of 1m 08.455s to be the last runner in the Top 10 Shootout as Chevrolet once again held the top three positions, but the Ford Mustang features more prominently.

It was a Coca-Cola Racing by Erebus 1-2 as Will Brown was second at just 0.103s behind his teammate, while Red Bull Ampol Racing’s Broc Feeney placed third.

Thomas Randle was fourth for Castrol Racing in the lead Ford Mustang as Todd Hazelwood bounced back from a frustrating day during practice on Friday to set the fifth fastest time and David Reynolds led the Penrite Racing attack behind.

Shell V-Power Racing Team’s Will Davison was seventh ahead of Cam Waters for Monster Energy Racing, Truck Assist Racing’s Jack Le Brocq and Matt Payne in the second Penrite Racing Ford Mustang rounded out the top 10.

Van Gisbergen failed to set a lap late after running wide at Turn 9 after copping a kerb strike and will start tomorrow’s main event from 19th, just ahead of Anton De Pasquale.

Tim Slade had an off prior to his final fast lap to be 11th ahead of rookie Cam Hill, Mark Winterbottom, James Courtney, Andre Heimgartner and Chaz Mostert.

Nick Percat endured clutch problems in his Ford Mustang, which continued to linger from the final practice session to qualifying.

The Top 10 Shootout concludes Saturday’s action at Sandown at 5:20pm AEST.
