The V8 SuperUte festivities would begin Friday morning with a practice session that would see Dave clock 12 laps around Wanneroo with a best time of 1m07.13s – the 12th fastest out of the 19-car grid. Dave would go even faster in the afternoon’s qualifying session, piloting his Dmax for 13 laps to a P8 qualifying result thanks to a fastest time of 1m06.35s. Dave had the following to say to wrap up Friday’s outing.

Dave Casey: “I’m really happy with qualifying, 8th is my best in SuperUtes ever. To come out top-10 with such huge experience in the field is a good indicator if you’re on the pace. The braking performance is better in this new Dmax compared to last year’s car for sure.”
