New Zealand race driver Shane van Gisbergen has set the fastest time during practice for this weekend's opening round of the Australian V8 Supercars in in Abu Dhabi, and expects similar times on race day.

The practice was the only opportunity for the drivers to take to the track ahead of tomorrow's qualifying top-10 shootout and the opening 200km race under lights.

Shane Van Gisbergen posted the fastest lap of 1:58.22, despite having his fastest lap discounted for short cutting the course.
