He went to the top of the timesheets with a one minute and 10.02 sec­ond lap in the morn­ing ses­sion, fin­ish­ing just 0.2136 sec­onds ahead of Jack Perkins.

Ja­cob­son will jump be­hind the wheel of his own Fal­con to­day and to­mor­row for two races, be­fore the at­ten­tion turns to race 19 of the V8 Su­per­cars Cham­pi­onship.

The first race starts to­day on Fox Sports at 3.15 pm, then at 10.55 am to­mor­row, be­fore back­ing up to race at 1.15 pm.

Last month, Ja­cob­son was recog­nised for a stel­lar 2016 af­ter win­ning the Phillip Is­land Auto Rac­ing Club Com­peti­tor of the Year.

The driver has been a part of the rac­ing club since 2009 and now has his name etched along­side all-time greats Greg Mur­phy Craig Lown­des.

On the track, Ja­cob­son has had a mixed year with a num­ber of faults, tyre fail­ures and en­gine blowouts, but is start­ing to and find form again.

He has fin­ished first once this sea­son and at his most re­cent meet at Syd­ney’s Su­perSprint he had two thirds and two fifth plac­ings from four races.
