It was a trouble free run for the Erebus Motorsport team
Lee Holdsworth continued his impressive lead-up to the Great Race with the seventh fastest time of the session with 2:09.37 in the Irwin Tools E63 AMG.
Lee Holdsworth: "It's a little bit disappointing as we had a really good car at the start of the session,”
The team moves onto the Bathurst 1000 next month motivated by its showing of good straight-line speed and some positive results from the weekend.
The three Erebus Motorsport E63 AMG’s have been trialling different setups ahead of tomorrow’s qualifying session and twin 20-lap qualifying races.
Erebus Motorsport statement regarding Tim Slade
All three of the Erebus Motorsport V8 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG V8 Supercars have completed every single racing lap of the weekend.
In the first year of introducing new brands to the sport there were two Mercedes-Benz and four Nissan Altimas in the top ten in Friday's V8 Supercars practice at the Hidden Valley circuit.
Days after winning the Bathurst 12H, Erebus Motorsport has unveiled the world’s first Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG V8 Supercars at a ‘purple’ carpet launch at All Phones Arena in Sydney.
First Jamie Whincup did not make it into the top 10 chasing for the pole, and then Will Davison made unusual errors. Tim Slade is one happy pole winner in the V8 Supercars Australia season finale weekend.
The result also ensured that Holden can no longer be beaten in the V8 Supercars Manufacturers Championship.
