Gold Coast 600: Paul Dumbrell paces co-driver practice

Dumbrell, who ran 15 laps, went to the top of the charts early on with a 1:11.5685. He later one-upped himself, lowering his fast time to a 1:11.1445. 

Richie Stanway came the closest to knocking the Holden driver from the top of the charts, putting down a lap of 1:11.3143. Tony D'Alberto was third quickest at a 1:11.4371.

Chris Pither, Dean Canto, Steve Owen, Matt Campbell, Jack Le Brocq, James Golding and Alex Premat rounded out the rest of the top ten.

Unlike the first practice session of the weekend, the co-driver session went incident-free. However, there were plenty of close calls, including Campbell's brush with the wall halfway through the 30-minute practice.
