Eggleston Motorsport rookie Will Brown has topped the timesheets in this morning's sole Super2 practice session at the WD-40 Phillip Island 500.

Brown finished with a best lap time of 1.44.4198s, taking top spot for the first time in his Super2 career.

Defending Dunlop Super2 Series champion Garry Jacobson claimed second just 0.008s behind the Holden driver.

Brown's veteran Eggleston Motorsport teammate Paul Dumbrell found the conditions challenging, going off  the track at the southern loop before finishing P3.

Shae Davies found the pace early in his Matt White Motorsport Nissan Altima comfortably finishing fourth in practice ahead of Todd Hazelwood. 

Davies' teammate Jack Le Brocq finished ninth after claiming the Altima's first Super2 win at the previous round at Symmons Plains.

Conditions on-track this morning proved challenging with the track drying throughout the session. 

While no rain fell in practice the track remained wet through the entire session. 

Nathan Morcom set off the first red flag early on in practice, after sliding off the track in the wet conditions.

A second red flag was waved when Brodie Kostecki’s #57 Falcon went off the circuit and Adam Marjoram having a similar incident with ten minutes remaining in the session.

No major damage was incurred.

The Dunlop Super2 Series will be back on track for ARMOR ALL Qualifying at 11:55am.

The weather forecast also predicts a shower during the opening Super2 race this afternoon.
