Russell Ingall has topped the second practice session at the Winton 400. 

Rain was falling at the start of the 20-minute run, but in the dying minutes, as the track dried out a number of times were set – none of which could beat the Repair Management Australia Commodore driver's 1min33.6809.

Ingall was happy with his Commodore after strong results in Tasmania, claiming 2014 feels like the best season start in years.

Tim Slade sits second by just 0.2 seconds, his stablemate James Courtney third.

A red flag punctuated halftime, Fabian Coulthard off at turn three in need of being retrieved, his third fastest time abolished.

Michael Caruso’s Norton Nissan suffered more brake problems – and four drivers didn’t even go out on track during the session, with both Ford Pepsi Max Crew Falcons remaining in the garage, as well as earlier fast man Will Davison, and Scott Pye.

Jason Bright, Scott McLaughlin – who suffered further power steering issues in the previous session – Shane van Gisbergen, Garth Tander, Rick Kelly, Todd Kelly and Jamie Whincup completing the top 10.

Championship leader Craig Lowndes was 11, and Coulthard relegated to 13th.
