Lance Hughes has clinched the Gull Pole Position for race one of the BNT V8s at Hampton Downs with a 01:14.172 just ahead of his teammate and championship leader Jack Smith.
A well and truly wet circuit greeted the BNT V8s field for their qualifying session, though a late breakthrough of sunshine granted some late runners a chance at top spot.
Just 0.035 split the teammates of Hughes and Jack Smith at the end of the session. Brenton Grove was just back of them in third with Nick Ross and Robb Wallace rounding out the top top five.
Paul Radisich topped the times in Class Three.
Race 1 of the weekend gets underway at 4:45pm.
