News // RICHARDS: 'IT'S BEEN AN EXCELLENT WEEKEND'

Jason Richards could not wipe the smile from his face today after leading his team home in seventh place at the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit this afternoon.

After four months on the sidelines fighting cancer, the Team BOC driver admits he is not quite race fit but it was hard to tell as Richards battled throughout the 25-lap race, at one point running second.

Team-mate Jason Bright passed Will Davison on the last lap to finish tenth, making Team BOC one of only two outfits to have both cars in the top ten. 

Tomorrow's race starts at 6.20pm.

Jason Richards
Team BOC #14
"I'm here to enjoy myself so I had a good stab. I have to say, so far, it's been an excellent weekend: third in practice, ninth in qualifying, P5 in the shoot-out, seventh in the race and I was still managing to reel in the guys ahead. All in all, I'm just rapt. I'm having fun and that's what it's all about.

"We assumed the soft tyres were a lot faster and would last longer but I think I actually did my fastest lap on the control tyre so we got strategy a bit wrong. I actually struggled on the soft tyres; the car just works a lot better on hards. It's interesting because last year it was the other way around."

Jason Bright
Team BOC #8
"We didn't have a good first lap and we didn't have a good pit stop. Then we got screwed by Murph and lost a spot to Jonathan Webb trying to pass him. If we'd not lost all that time, we would have been right on Frosty but it would have been hard to get much further up than that."
