Jason Richards and Team BOC staged another strong performance on final day of track activity today. Jason backed up his 5th place in Race 1 with an impressive 7th in Race 2. Jason had the car speed to finish inside the top 5 again before an electric gremlin hampered his progress.
Bradley Jones, Co-Owner:
Race 2: ?Another fantastic drive from Jason. I?m really pleased with the ease he?s shown adapting to the Team BOC Commodore, a car that?s different to the one he?s been used to racing. The race pace he has shown and his qualifying efforts have convinced me he?ll be a championship contender.?

Race 2: ?I got a great start and felt I had the pace to go with the leaders until an electrical problem began to hamper the performance of the car and by the last safety car period I was struggling to change gears. I feel like I?ve passed my first day at school, the teacher said I did well..!!.?
