McLaughlin tagged the back of a slow-moving Jacobson at the exit of the final corner, leaving the Shell V-Power Racing Mustang to start 10th.

Jacobson though qualified last, meaning his grid penalty will be served at a future event.

The second-year main game driver apologised to McLaughlin after the session, taking full responsibility for the situation.

David Reynolds has meanwhile been given a two-place grid penalty for impending Andre Heimgartner's Kelly Racing Mustang.

Heimgartner came across both Penrite Racing Holdens at the exit of Turn 7, aborting his lap as a result.

Reynolds qualified 19th for Race 24 and will start 21st, while teammate Anton De Pasquale escaped sanction and lines up fourth.
