The second session saw an earlier red flag as Holden driver Jamie Whincup went off in the same corner, making light contact with the tyre wall.

The first session, featuring co-drivers only and light rain, saw Triple Eight Race Engineering driver Garth Tander being fastest ahead of Nissan drivers Bryce Fullwood and Dale Wood.

Brad Jones Racing driver Ash Walsh was one of many drivers to spin off at Turn 4, making contact with the tyre barriers.

The final practice session, also for co-drivers only, had veteran Craig Lowndes fastest ahead of Fabian Coulthard’s co-driver Tony D’Alberto, with 0.06 seconds separating the two.

The #15 Kelly Racing entry of Dale Wood was fourth fastest ahead of Tander and Jack Perkins, who is co-driver to James Courtney at Walkinshaw Andretti United.
