In the Australian Formula Ford Series William Brown’s Mygale topped an incredibly competitive official practice session with the top 11 cars covered by just 1.1 seconds. The Queensland driver drove his Mygale SJ12A to a fastest lap of 1:36.489, just 0.0148s quicker than Christian Morina, with Jake Spencer, Cameron Hill and Thomas Maxwell rounding out the top five.
