News // QUALIFYING THE HIGHLIGHT

Starting seventh at Queensland Raceway was the highlight of today's racing for Team BOC, with the day going downhill after that. 

A slip with the pedals in the day's first race relegated Bright to last on the track with 12 laps to go. He re-passed Tony D'Alberto, Dean Fiore, Fabian Coulthard, Jonathan Webb, Jason Bargwanna and Garth Tander to finish 21st.

After a 15-minute service break Bright started the second 22-lap race from 21st and was up to 15th when a safety car was called on lap three. The team took a gamble, deciding to pit for new tyres. Bright drove through the field to finish 14th but says the strategy did not pay off. 

Qualifying for tomorrow's race starts at 11.20am.

"In the first race I got my foot jammed under the brake pedal so I was really late pulling up at the last corner. That dropped us to last. It was a pretty costly mistake when you've got to start the second race where you finished the first. We made a few spots back but not as many as we needed.

"In the second race we took the safety car on lap three as an opportunity to do tyres. Ideally the safety car would have come five laps later and it would have been a lot clearer decision. We dropped eight positions by doing it and only really got back up to where we were so I don't feel it really paid off. 

"I think we can improve qualifying quite a bit still. We lost out today because there was oil on the track mid-session and we hadn't done our best time by then. I think we were capable of a few spots higher but I think we will be stronger tomorrow."
