As expected, the S5000 machine was able to wrap under a two minute barrier. Gary Rogers motorsport driver Aaron Cameron set a time of 1’59.934 seconds. This is the only driver to sneak under the 120 second marker to get pole position in qualifying.

As previously reported, S5000 machines are less than this weekend, as motorsport Australia rules state that all racing cars must not exceed a power-to-weight ratio of 2 kilograms per horsepower on FIA grade 3 circuits. Running power

Despite Australian driver’s champion Joey Mawson running a deficit of 85 horsepower, yesterday he was only 0.8 seconds away from the actual number with old tires.

During qualifying, everyone was improving with laps, but it seemed that they were running out of time, but Tasman Series leader Cameron sneaked in in a minute and took the pole position.

Time is the fastest official lap set by Open Wheeler at Mount Panorama (Jenson Button’s McLaren Formula 1 lap was not an official session).

Cameron’s time is less than 0.7 seconds behind the full lap record of 1’59.291 set by Christopher Mies at the 2018 Audi R8 at Challenge Bassert.

Cameron stole the 0.15-second pole from teammates James Golding and Morson.

Nathan Herne qualified in 4th place ahead of former F1 driver Roberto Merhi John Martin, who had an early off-track excursion session on Turn 1.

Tim Macrow, Luis Leeds, Blake Birdie and Jordan Boys will finish the 10th qualifying round and Japanese driver Yoshiaki Katayama will return tomorrow after 72 hours of isolation as an international traveler.
