Jack Le Brocq has claimed Nissan’s first ARMOR ALL Pole Award in the Dunlop Super2 Series today in Phillip Island.

Le Brocq topped the qualifying charts with a best lap time of 1.31.4045s, ahead of former Prodrive teammate Garry Jacobson.

The Nissan enduro driver emphasised his growing confidence in his Altima after taking out pole today.

“It was a good package straight out of the gates,” Le Brocq said.

The MW Motorsport driver will be determined to double up and take out a second race win of the season this afternoon after victory in race four at Symmons Plains.

Defending champ Jacobson battled his FG X Falcon in the session and will line up next to Le Brocq for the Dunlop Super2 Series Race One this afternoon at 2:30pm.

Paul Morris Motorsport’s Anton De Pasquale will sit on the second row of the grid after claiming P3 in qualifying alongside Shae Davies in the second Altima.

Front runners Paul Dumbrell and Todd Hazelwood will share row three on the grid.

Early morning pacesetter Will Brown ended qualifying in P9.

The Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit remained dry for the duration of the Qualifying session.

Josh Kean went off track after a 180 degree spin through turns one and two.

"Once it hit the dirt I couldn't stop it,” Kean said after his off track adventure.

Kean returned to pit lane for the team to assess his Prodrive falcon and returned to the field with seven minutes remaining in the session eventually qualifying 12th.

Race One for the Dunlop Super2 Series will commence at 2:30pm this afternoon.
