Townsville Supercars: Waters sets Practice 2 pace
By:

Cam Waters narrowly set the pace in the second practice session in Townsville, edging fellow Mustang driver Scott McLaughlin by just 0.002s.

Points leader McLaughlin led the way for much of the half-hour session, going into the final green tyre runs with a 1m12.451s under his belt.

He managed to lower the benchmark to a 1m12.342s with a late quali sim, but it wasn't quite enough amid a flurry of improvements. Instead it was Waters that grabbed top spot, his time 0.002s better than McLaughlin's.

Chaz Mostert was a little further back in third, the gap just over a tenth to his former teammate, while James Courtney backed up his strong showing in Practice 1 with the fourth quickest time.

Title contender Jamie Whincup was fifth quickest ahead of Lee Holdsworth, Nick Percat, Bryce Fullwood and Shane van Gisbergen.
