MW Motorsport driver Garry Jacobson has claimed ARMOR ALL Pole Position for Saturday's Dunlop Super2 Series 250km race at Bathurst.

Jacobson set an imposing flyer in the closing stages, with a 2:06.0535s ultimately 0.0910 seconds clear of Brodie Kostecki.

The 30-minute session had a late flurry of laps, after Jake Kostecki found the tyres at Griffins Bend and caused a red flag.

Running resumed with nine minutes remaining, Sandown winner Brodie Kostecki taking top spot momentarily before Jacobson prevailed.

Jacobson's team-mate Dean Fiore and Chris Pither also both spent time in first place, but had to settle for third and fourth.

Eggleston Motorsport pair Will Brown and Paul Dumbrell will share the third row of the grid, the series leader 0.4468s off Jacobson's effort.

Last year's Bathurst Super2 victor, Macauley Jones will start seventh, with Alex Rullo, Kurt Kostecki and Mason Barbera rounding out the top 10.

Jacobson, Fiore, Pither, Brown, Dumbrell, Jones, Rullo and 12th-placed Bryce Fullwood are all on double duty with the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

The session's top rookie was Tickford's Thomas Randle in 11th.

The combination of Brenton Grove and two-time Le Mans winner Earl Bamber returned to the track after a driveline failure in practice.

Grove, though, finished at the foot of the order.

A 15-minute warm-up will take place at 9:30am on Saturday, followed by the Super2 enduro at 2:55pm.
