Will Davison leads the way on the Gold Coast

A last gasp lap has given Shell V-Power Racing Team’s Will Davison the advantage after opening practice on the Gold Coast.

A 1m 11.221s lap gave Davison a 0.018s margin back to Red Bull Ampol Racing’s Shane van Gisbergen, who is aiming to seal the 2022 Repco Supercars Championship this weekend.

Another title protagonist in Monster Energy Racing driver Cameron Waters was third from the Mobil 1 Optus Racing Holden ZB Commodore of Chaz Mostert and Mark Winterbottom completed the top five for IRWIN Racing entry.

In the newly repaired Penrite Racing Ford Mustang, David Reynolds was sixth from Mostert’s teammate Nick Percat, Anton De Pasquale in the second Shell V-Power Racing Team Ford Mustang, R&J Batteries supported Brad Jones Racing driver Andre Heimgartner and Truck Assist Racing’s Jack Le Brocq rounded out the top 10.

Outside the top runners, Brodie Kostecki was 14th, Tim Slade 15th, James Courtney in a spare Mustang 17th, Will Brown 19th, Scott Pye 20th and Broc Feeney 21st.

It’s the first time since 2019 the Repco Supercars Championship has travelled to the Gold Coast and many drivers pushed the limits, but there were no major problems or stoppages, particularly Davison as he aborted a run through the opening chicane and landed awkwardly.

The next session for the Repco Supercars Championship is the second practice session starting at 3:15pm AEST (4:15pm AEDT) this afternoon.
