Harrolds Rosso Volante Racing’s Jordan Love has finished fastest in the final practice session at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst International.
Returning to Australia following completing his racing season in Europe, Love set the pace in Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia powered by AWS prior to qualifying later in the schedule.
Setting a 2m 04.494s time, Love eclipsed Triple Eight Race Engineering’s Jamie Whincup to the tune of 0.641s as it was a Mercedes-AMG GT3 1-2-3 at the top of the timesheets as Broc Feeney was third.
Brad Schumacher and Tim Slade led the Audi charge in the Schumacher Motorsport entry, 1.032s off the leading pace, while the Wall Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3 completed the top five as Adrian Deitz is joined by David Wall.
Rounding out the Pro-Am Class was the Hallmarc Audi of Michael Caruso ahead of the SCT/Miles Advisory entry of Jack Smith and Tim Miles.
Michael Sheargold and Garth Walden led the way in Am Class by just 0.249s in the RAM Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT3 from the Koundouris brothers in their Supabarn Supermarkets Audi.
As the sole GT Trophy, Valmont Racing’s Mercedes-AMG GT3 shared by Marcel Zalloua and Sergio Pires is competing alongside the Am Class competitors, which it is closely matched to.
Nash Morris led the way in GT4 Class in the Mercedes-AMG he’ll share with Mark Griffith, with Chris Batzios and Sam Brabham in the Harrolds Volante Rosso Racing example close behind.
Rounding out the field was the Invitational Class KTM X-Bow GT2 of David Crampton and Trent Harrison, with this interesting model continuing to improve.
