Shane van Gisbergen's perfect Supercars season has continued after smashing the lap record in the return to racing around Adelaide's streets.
The champion-elect set a scorching lap of one minute 19.1992 seconds in practice two on Friday, pipping Ford's Tom Randle, who had also broken the record set by Chaz Mostert in 2020.
Randle had the quickest time for most of the session but van Gisbergen was able to go faster in the dying seconds.
Van Gisbergen takes an unassailable 683-point lead into the final round of the season after winning an extraordinary 21 out of 32 races this year.
The Commodore driver is looking to cap off a stellar campaign by winning the two races at the Adelaide 500 this weekend to go with his Bathurst 1000 win and second-straight championship crown.
It promises to be an emotional event with Holden fans to finally bid farewell to the famous red lion.
General Motors retired the Holden brand in 2020, announcing it just weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic begun, but the Commodore has lived on in motor racing.
However, with the Gen3 cars ready to launch next year, Chevrolet Camaros will replace Holdens on the grid to battle the Ford Mustangs.
Qualifying for Saturday's 78-lap race will get underway at 5.35pm local time on Friday.
