Jamie Whincup regrouped and returned to the top of the timesheets after a horror run on the street of Hamilton. The TeamVodafone driver posted the fastest lap of practice with a time of 0:56:6758.

Teammate Craig Lowndes was only two-tenths of a second behind in third, with a time of 0:56:8772.

The TeamVodafone duo have hit the Wanneroo track determined to defend their 2009 results, having both started off pole position and celebrated a race victory in the V8 Supercars last West Australian outing.

While tomorrow’s qualifying and 121.km race will see the teams take to the track on the traditional hard compound tyres they will switch to the soft compound for Sunday’s qualifying and dual races.

The V8 Supercars will qualify at 10.50am (local time) ahead of the first race of the weekend and the seventh in the V8 Supercar Championships Series at 2.05pm (local time).

TeamVodafone’s live raceday blog from the pit garage will commence on www.teamvodafone.com at 2:05pm (local time).
