Scott McLaughlin will start both of today’s Supercars races in Darwin from pole position.
Having stuck to the hard tyres yesterday, McLaughlin had plenty of soft compound Dunlops at his disposal for today’s two 10-minute sessions.
He put them to good use, though, bagging a pair of poles to make it a clean sweep for the weekend.
In the first session McLaughlin only just pipped teammate Fabian Coulthard, the Penske pair separated by just two-hundredths of a second.
Race 1 winner Anton De Pasquale was third fastest followed by Jamie Whincup, Nick Percat, Andre Heimgartner and Shane van Gisbergen.
In the second session McLaughlin had more of a margin, a weekend-best 1m06.309s leaving him three-tenths clear of Whincup.
Van Gisbergen edged Chaz Mostert for third, with Cam Waters and Coulthard securing third-row starting spots.
