Will Brown, the young Supercar driver, had a scorching lap in qualifying to take pole for the Top 10 Shootout at the Bathurst 1000.

The 23-year-old Erebus Motorsport, who was competing in the Bathurst 1000 for the first time, clocked a lap of 2: 03.898.

A driver at the other end of his career – the legendary Jamie Whincup – sensationally missed the top 10 finishing 11th.

Tim Slade had a brilliant time late in the session to grab fourth place and pull Whincup out of the top 10.

Brown was so busy celebrating his magnificent run that he probably missed the drama surrounding Whincup.

“I grew balls there and took a dive!” Brown said on Fox Sports.

“It was really great. How good was it!

“To do a 2:03 round here… I didn’t care if I got the pole or not – it’s a pretty mean moment. I’m just pumped.”

Supercars great Mark Scaife was stunned.

“Absolutely exceptional!” Scaife said on Fox Sports.

“Brilliant work.”

Scaife had put into perspective before qualifying how important the pole was.

“It’s huge, it’s huge,” Scaife said on Fox Sports coverage.

“It intimidates everyone.

“If you’re the fastest this afternoon, you come out of that joint with a spring in your step and walk into tomorrow with a really, really big smile on your face.”
