Will Davison smashed his own lap record during the day’s final practice session of the Wilson Security Sandown 500. However, he was reduced to third after Red Bull Racing’s Craig Lowndes and Erebus Motorsport V8’s Lee Holdsworth improved on the time, Lowndes recording a 1min08.9334 to record the day's quickest time and set the new practice lap record.
No less than eight drivers broke the previously standing 1min09.3670sec practice record.
Rounding out the top 10 were Scott McLaughlin, Alex Premat, Mark Winterbottom, Garth Tander, Alex Davison, Jason Bright and David Reynolds.
Championship leader Jamie Whincup came home 18th while Fabian Coulthard, also in the Championship hunt, was 19th.
A final practice session follows tomorrow morning at 10.20am AEST, for all drivers. A qualifying session, co-drivers race and main series driver race follows to determine the starting positions for Sunday’s race, the first of the PIRTEK Enduro Cup.
