The Bend Supercars: Waters grabs both Sunday poles

The opening 10-minute session came right down to a battle of the Tickford Mustangs between Waters and surprise contender Thomas Randle.

Waters initially got the very best of the key final runs with a 1m48.348s, limited to Randle to then go purple in the initial two sectors.

The rookie fell away in the ultimate sector, though, helping Waters hold on to pole by simply 0.07s.

Race 1 winner Shane van Gisbergen, who was simply fastest on the initial run, finished up third before James Courtney, Anton De Pasquale and Chaz Mostert.

Broc Feeney and Mark Winterbottom were next, while Bryce Fullwood and Lee Holdsworth were ninth and 10th.

The surprise of the initial session was an in-form Will Davison, who finished up just 23rd on the grid after locking through to his final run.

In the next session the majority of the fast times came on the initial run, Waters sealing pole with a 1m48.337s straight from the gate.

He did execute a better first sector on his final run but, with pole secured, didn’t continue on with the lap.

“It’s awesome,” said Waters. “The automobile is actually, really nice today. Much better than it had been yesterday. It’s still not perfect, nonetheless it can not be that bad.”

De Pasquale was second, just 0.03s slower than Waters, while van Gisbergen managed to get a set of thirds.

Randle capped off a good morning with eighth in the next session before Mostert and Davison.

The next session saw another big name in the bottom of that time period sheets, David Reynolds qualifying 27th and last.

The initial of today’s 120-kilometre races begins at 12: 30pm local time.
