Rain and storms are expected to strike the mountain sometime within the 45-minute no-holds-barred session scheduled for 5.05pm.

Rain also reached the mountain late Friday in a thrilling qualifying session that saw Lee Holdsworth claim provisional pole first in his 16-year Supercars career at Bathurst.

A Jake Kostecki shunt had red-flagged the session before the conditions helped Holdsworth stick to the top of the leaderboard in his Tickford Mustang.

With Sunday's race start pushing forward half an hour to 11 am due to looming wild weather, Saturday's Shootout is now being predicted to be heavily influenced by the heavens.

The Bureau of Meteorology outlook for Saturday (as of Saturday afternoon) predicts: "High (70 percent) and this evening's risk of a thunderstorm."

"It'll be fun, I remember we had the same thing in 2015 where a weather-affected shooting could be," said Shane van Gisbergen.

"It's a lottery, what end of the show you're. Hopefully our way slips and it starts drying up or getting colder or something.

"At least everybody has a decent chance."

Holdsworth is the last driver to reach the Shootout track. Yet what is normally a vital advantage could turn to a disaster if the weather turns nasty – and when it really counts, the very same rain that guaranteed his provisional pole could deny him a first row shot.

Holdsworth also said it could be "a little gamble," adding: "As long as you're in the 10, it'll work out."

Meanwhile, enduro veteran Warren Luff ended the timesheets in Saturday morning's third and final devoted practice session for co-drivers before Cameron Waters went fastest in practice 7. In Practice 6, Luff matched with Chaz Mostert in the # 25 Walkinshaw Andretti United Holden, with a best 2:05.4597s.

That time was set with 15 of the remaining 60 minutes knocking past fast-man Garth Tander from the order head.

Young gun Thomas Randle was a late improver to break Luff and Tander on board the benchmark's Brad Jones Racing Holden, dipping 0.2820s.

James Moffat, driving Jack Le Brocq's Mustang Supercheap, was fourth ahead of David Russell – an unexpected top contender in Garry Jacobson's Matt Stone Racing Holden.

Waters was ahead of Holdsworth and Chaz Mostert in Saturday's final practice session.

Of the Shootout runners, van Gisbergen wasted no time down a benchmark time, clocking 2:04.6283s in the early minutes before handing over to Garth Tander.

That was just six minutes to go as Friday's qualifying pacesetter Holdsworth was 0.1641s faster.

Waters, however, had the last laugh, with 2:04.3493s cutting 0.1149s off his teammate's time – barely missing the Forrest's Elbow exit pillar.

The top ten after Friday's qualification session were:

Lee Holdsworth, Shane van Gisbergen, Scott McLaughlin and Cameron Waters, Jamie Whincup, Anton De Pasquale, Chaz Mostert, James Courtney and Nick Percat.

During shootout, they'll take the track in reverse order.

Bathurst 1000:

Heavy crashes prolong prosecutions

It didn't take long for Bathurst to claim any hapless casualties when some heavy accidents on the mountain stopped things.

Any strong crashes rocked Super 2 qualifying as Mount Panorama proved too difficult to tame a few drivers.

The session was disrupted twice when Tickford Racing's Broc Feeney and Triple Eight Race Engineering's Angelo Mouzouris all lost control and slammed Bathurst 's barriers.

Another incident involving Declan Fraser pulled out the third red flag, and the session ended as the tyre wall required repairs.

Seventeen-year-old Feeney was the first to experience Bathurst's fury when he lost balance at The Esses' bottom and collided with the tyre wall, and fell onto the asphalt. One TV analyst described 'absolute aggression.'

"He came hot ... he flew down the mountain," the caller said.

Tickford Racing said Feeney 's car suffered "heavy damage," but unharmed survived.

Next, Mouzouris learned a hard lesson on the famous track. The youngster, speeding into The Esses, became briefly airborne when three of his wheels rose off the ground.

It looked like he had a chance to survive, then zipped into the grass and smashed into the asphalt before ricocheting into a fence on the track's opposite side.

"You see the inside wheels pick up and he fought the car from there," said a Fox Sports analyst. "Ah, man.

"He had wheels in the air, but never regained his balance — like a tightrope walker struggling to find his feet desperately.

"Couldn't, because it's gone."

Declan Fraser's mishap resulted in another red flag and selecting the qualifying order by push laps halfway through the session.

Image Racing's Will Brown finished with a fastest lap of 2:07.0695, ahead of Jordan Boys second and Thomas Randle seventh.
