Supercars rookie Will Brown has stunned the grid taking out his maiden pole position ahead of this evenings night race at Sydney Motorsport Park; the blistering pace came on the back of an outstanding performance last weekend.

The twenty-three-year-old from Toowoomba, who flies himself to events in his family plane, drove the wheels off his car to put in the perfect lap during qualifying to claim his first pole and first for a rookie since 2016.

The session’s biggest loser was Anton De Pasquale, who will launch from last place on the grid for tonight’race race after an engine failure in qualifying.

Tonight’s race is the first of two under lights this weekend in a first for the Eastern Creek venue.

Red Bull’s Shane van Gisbergen enters this round holding a commanding 338-point Championship lead over teammate Jamie Whincup. 

This weekend’s event, the Armor All Sydney SuperNight is the second of four in the Beaurepaires Sydney Cup. The driver who claims the most points from the 11 races in Sydney will claim a $25,000 cash prize.
