A good start for the New Zealand drivers in practice for the Bathurst 1000 V8s this weekend with three posting top 10 times at Mount Panorama.

Jason Richards was point 73 of a second slower in his Holden than the three-time defending champions Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes, who were fastest in a Ford.

Greg Murphy was two places back from Richards with the seventh fastest time while Fabian Coulthard, also in a Ford, was 10th fastest.
