Will Davison and Ash Walsh both featured in the top five in the second practice session at the Castrol EDGE Townsville 400, looking to bounce back after Erebus' Darwin result.

Both cars topped practice at the track last year, with Davison earning his first podium for the team in 2014. He achieved his first Erebus win earlier this year in Perth and has been looking forward to returning to the street circuit that has suited the car in the past.

Davison's 1min13.0250 lap was 0.4539sec ahead of Super Black young gun Andre Heimgartner - who has experience at the Townsville circuit from his Dunlop Series days.

James Courtney was home third, with Scott McLaughlin and his Volvo ahead of Walsh. All top five cars set their times on the soft tyre.

Five-hundred man Jason Bright was sixth, with David Reynolds, Scott Pye, Todd Kelly and Fabian Coulthard ensuring all five manufacturers were in the top 10.

Meanwhile Shane van Gisbergen spent the session in the garage as the team attempted to fix a vibration that plagued the STIX Darrell Lea Commodore in the first session. Van Gisbergen was able to set a quick time in that first run, but is behind the pace after missing the majority of each session.
