- 2019 V8 Supercar Championship Season - News - RICHARDS SALVAGES GREAT RESULT
News // Richards Salvages Great Result

Team BOC Media Bulletin 4 of 4
Sunday Report
2010 Australian V8 Supercar Championship
Event: Hamilton ITM400, Hamilton New Zealand. Races: 7 & 8

Gaining 13 places in 59 laps was a satisfying result today for Jason Richards, who again won the battle of the Kiwis in the V8 Supercar race at Hamilton Street Track.

After saying yesterday?s Team BOC Commodore was uncomfortable to drive, the crew made extensive changes overnight. Unfortunately the set-up did not work for qualifying, with Richards starting the race 25th, but a sensational drive and some great strategy saw him finish 12th, the first of the New Zealanders for the second day running.

V8 Supercars will next be in action two weeks from now at Queensland Raceway, Ipswich.
                               
Jason Richards, Team BOC #8:
?In retrospect, yesterday was probably the best the car has been but we changed it for qualifying today; we changed the philosophy. It didn?t seem to work and starting from 25th we didn?t have much to lose so we bailed and joined Jason Bright?s set-up. It was good for the first few laps but then lost the tyres.

?The places I made up were mostly through strategy because we didn?t have the brakes to pass people. I managed to put a really good middle stint together, which gave us a bit of a leap into the pack after the stops and the car felt good but when the tyres go away you can?t make up any ground.

?I didn?t see a P12 here today so to be fair we finished both races probably where our car speed was.?

Brad Jones, Co-Owner:
?I think it was a fantastic job by both Jason and the team to go from 25th up to 12th. It was a combination of good strategy and sensible driving. Jason just knuckled down on a tough weekend and got the best result he could. Two top-12 finishes in two races is a good solid result on any day.?
