Max Twigg has claimed his second Australian GT Championship pole position, edging out Roger Lago in the JBS Australia Lamborghini by just 0.02 of a second.
The top four were separated by less than two tenths of a second, with three different brands represented on the front two rows of the grid.
For Twigg (Australian Engineered Flooring Mercedes-AMG), it marked his first pole position for Mercedes, and his first since he claimed the top spot at Eastern Creek in 2010.
Geoff Emery (Valvoline Audi R8 LMS) qualified third fastest with Championship points leader Tony Bates four fastest in the Moveitnet Mercedes-AMG GT3.
Bates had an eventful session, ending it in the gravel at turn three after sliding wide.
With less than two minutes remaining in the session, the incident was covered by yellow flags but was enough to stop improving their times.
A race winner in Adelaide at Round 1, Peter Major will start out of fifth for Race 2 in the PM Motorsport Lamborghini R-EX, while Fraser Ross is the leading McLaren in sixth place for Tekno Autosports.
The top ten is rounded out by Liam Talbot (MEGA Racing Porsche 911 GT3-R), James Koundouris (Supabarn Supermarkets Audi R8 LMS), Ash Samadi (Ah Apartments Audi R8 LMS) and Nick Kelly (Industrie Audi R8 LMS).
Race 2 is scheduled for 10:45 tomorrow (March 24) with Race 1 set to get underway this afternoon at 15:40.
