Anton De Pasquale beats Cameron Waters to Perth pole position

Andon De Pasquale beat Cameron Waters to pole position by a tenth of a second in qualifying for the first Supercars Championship Perth SuperNight race.

“I was pushing quite hard there, it’s so tight around here,” said De Pasquale. “You’re on a fine line of putting a good lap together.”

Points leader Shane van Gisbergen was third fastest for Triple Eight Race Engineering, two tenths from his Dick Johnson Racing title rival.

Erebus driver Brodie Kostecki was fourth fastest, with David Reynolds and James Courtney occupying positions five and six.

Andre Hemgartner was seventh for Brad Jones Racing, with Broc Feeney rounding off the top eight for Triple Eight – seven tenths from pole.

Title contender Chaz Mostert, currently placed third overall, had a nightmare session after being eliminated in Q1 and will start 23rd.

The first race of the weekend starts at 18:40 AWST/12:40 CEST.
