- 2019 V8 Supercar Championship Season - News - EASTERN CREEK TEST DAY
News // Eastern Creek Test Day
V8 supercar teams converged on Sydney?s Eastern Creek Raceway for the 2011 V8 Supercars Championship launch and opening test day. A huge crowd enjoyed free admission and warm summer?s day for their first chance to see the team?s new liveries. Adding to the value was the chance for the fans to walk amongst the races and drivers during a lunchtime grid walk. 
 
For Team BOC?s Jason Bright it was valuable track time and a chance to get his eye in as all teams prepared for the season?s opening races at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi.
 
The day was split into two sessions. During the morning session, Team BOC?s new pilot, Jason Bright and crew cycled through a series of scheduled set up changes. Bright completed 53 laps during the first session recording 1:32.4901 on lap 51 to finish just outside the top ten in 11th position. 
 
During the afternoon session, V8 Supercars allowed teams to test on the Dunlop sprint tyre. The Team BOC crew continued to work through the test schedule gathering vital data on the cars handling and performance on differing set ups and tyre compounds. 
 
A highlight for the team was a visit from Jason Richards, incredibly suiting up and running laps in the race car only two days after completing a chemotherapy course. JR showed all his fighting qualities recording times inside the top ten. 
 
Brighty completed another 42 laps in the afternoon session recording a 1:31.05 on his 38th lap to post an outstanding third fastest time for the day. 
 
For JR, the chance to drive the Team BOC Commodore again was a big thrill; 
 
?To be able to get in a car after finishing my first cycle of chemo is very encouraging. Mentally it is so good to be here today and see the fans and my V8 family.? 
 
Jason Bright will meet with team engineers at the Team?s workshop today for a post test day debrief. 
 
Jason Bright thought the day was OK, but could have been a little more productive; 
 
?3rd place today at official test. Happy with 3rd but didn't feel we put out best foot forward today. Looking forward to Abu Dhabi and grip!?
