Will Davison claims pole for his 500th race start in Supercars

Will Davison is set to start on the front row of the grid for his 500th race, after securing pole with blistering pace earlier today in the Top Ten shootout.

Davison’s pole-winning time proved 0.0011s quicker than his own practice/qualifying record set last year.

This marks the third straight pole in Darwin for Davison, and his fifth for this year and shows great pace by the Shell V-Power Racing Team as teammate Anton De Pasquale closes out the front row.

“I’m putting a lot of pressure on myself today, it’s a very special day,” Davison said.
“I don’t get caught up in milestones, but the team did such a nice thing for me this morning.

“To still put laps together like that at 500 races, it means so, so much to me.
“We’ve got to convert, but that’s what it’s all about.”

Brad Jones Racing continued their good form at the Northern Territory circuit with Andre Heimgartner, beating out Shane van Gisbergen in qualifying to make the shootout.

Van Gisbergen had a rare slip in his shootout lap, hitting the kerb and lifting the 97 onto two wheels, recovering to cement a spot on the second row for this afternoon’s race.
