Thomas Randle will start the opening race of Round 4 for the Dunlop Super2 Series at the Century Batteries Ipswich SuperSprint from ARMOR ALL Pole.

The Tickford Falcon driver’s final run in the session yielded a 1:10.5227s, which proved 0.0705s clear of next-best Kurt Kostecki.

It marks Randle’s second career pole and comes as he chases his first career win, having had a victory taken away with a post-race penalty in Townsville.

"It's a massive payback to the boys. It's my first pole since Barbagallo last year, so a real monkey off my back," said Randle.

Kostecki backed out of a final lap that appeared set to snatch pole, with Matt Chahda having stranded his Ford in the Turn 3 gravel, triggering yellow flags.

Series leader Bryce Fullwood will start third in his MW Motorsport Nissan, sharing row two with the Eggleston Holden of Jack Perkins.

Zane Goddard ended up fifth, having been on top prior to the final runs. His best time was ultimately taken away due to a track limits breach at Turn 2.

Jake Kostecki, Tyler Everingham, Dylan O’Keeffe, Jack Smith and Brenton Grove completed the top 10, while just 0.5s separated first from 15th.

Ash Walsh and Will Brown both struggled and will line-up 11th and 14th respectively.
