Defending Dunlop Super2 Series champion Garry Jacobson set the fastest time in Friday morning's opening practice session at the Wilson Security Sandown 500.

The Shepparton native went to the top of the timesheets with a 1m10.02s lap in his Prodrive Racing Australia Falcon late in the session, finishing just 0.2136 seconds ahead of Jack Perkins.

Brad Jones Racing’s Andrew Jones and Macauley Jones claimed third and fourth places, showing consistent pace throughout the 40-minute session, while Richard Muscat rounded out the top five.

Todd Hazelwood goes into this weekend’s penultimate Dunlop Super2 Series round with a five-point lead over Eggleston Motorsport racer Paul Dumbrell.

Hazelwood finished 10th and Dumbrell 14th, nearly eight and nine tenths off the pace set by Hazelwood respectively.

Seven Super2 drivers will be completing double duties this weekend, stepping into co-driver seats for the first round of the PIRTEK Enduro Cup.

Hazelwood, Dumbrell, Macauley Jones, Jacobson, Jack Le Brocq, Muscat and Perkins have all secured seats in the main game for the enduros.

They will be back on track for a co-drivers-only Virgin Australia Supercars Championship session from 11:15am on Friday, before the second Super2 practice session at 2:45pm.
