Prodrive Racing (Australia) has locked out the front row for today's second race at Winton, with stablemate David Reynolds close behind at the NP300 Navara Winton SuperSprint.

Chaz Mostert will start from ARMOR ALL Pole Position, with teammate Mark Winterbottom alongside - Mostert's 1min24.0970 lap clinched his fourth pole from five races, and Prodrive's fifth consecutive P1 start.

"It's tricky out there with the oil from the Touring Car Masters, but the car still worked good, it slides across the oil," Pepsi Max's Mostert said.

"It's good to have your teammates up there as well; you can race together. It's awesome. Everyone's put in hard work on the FG X and it's working well."

Winterbottom was just 0.1028sec behind, as times fired in the closing seconds of the 10-minute qualifying session.

Alongside Reynolds will be Rick Kelly, backing up Nissan's earlier front row qualifying result, and good mates Will Davison and Jamie Whincup will start on the third row.

Scott McLaughlin bounced back to ninth after triggering the red flag in the earlier session, and Craig Lowndes is in tenth as Red Bull hunts for a result at Winton.

The shock of the session was Fabian Coulthard, dead last in 25th. A strange incident early on saw he and stablemate Dale Wood come together.
