Reynolds snares first V8 pole

Ford driver David Reynolds has snared the first pole position of his V8 Supercars career for Sunday’s 200km race in Townsville.

Reynolds beat teammates Mark Winterbottom and Will Davison in a Ford Performance Racing 1-2-3 to qualify fastest in the 20-minute qualifying run at the Reid Park street circuit.

The 27-year-old clocked a one minute and 12.5817 second lap to take pole, with Winterbottom second-fastest with a 1:12.6489 and Davison third (1:12.7129).

“Awesome effort by the boys,” Reynolds told the Seven Network.

“The car’s been so pacey – it’s about time we got a pole.”

Holden veteran Craig Lowndes qualified fifth-fastest with teammate and championship leader Jamie Whincup to start from ninth on the grid.

Ex-Formula One champion Jacques Villeneuve will start from last position for the second time this weekend, again finishing more than half a second behind his nearest competitor.

Sunday’s race begins at 3.35pm (AEST).
