AS IT HAPPENED: All the action from Thursday’s Bathurst 1000 Practice

Lee Holdsworth secured provisional pole for the Bathurst 1000 after an action-packed qualifying session, albeit one that was curtailed when a rain shower swept over the top of Mount Panorama with a couple of minutes to go.

Holdsworth heads a Top 10 Shootout field for the first time in just under a decade; the last time was at the 2010 Gold Coast 600, while the fourth and most recent pole of his career came later that year at the Sydney 500.

The four fastest cars of Holdsworth, Shane van Gisbergen, Scott McLaughlin and Cameron Waters were covered by just 0.08 of a second, while barely half a second covered the top 10.

Jamie Whincup, Fabian Coulthard, Anton De Pasquale, Chaz Mostert, James Courtney and Nick Percat round out the top 10 field, while Bryce Fullwood missed out by just 0.0511s in 11th.
