- 2019 V8 Supercar Championship Season - News - FALSE START AT GOLD COAST
News // FALSE START AT GOLD COAST

Early optimism at Team BOC evaporated today after Jason Bright went from eighth fastest in the first practice session to 19th overall by the end of the day.

The team is now stripping-back the car and re-walking the Surfers Paradise street track to find some answers before qualifying for the Armor All Gold Coast 600 starts tomorrow at 9.35am.

International co-driver St?phane Sarrazin used the team's wheel-spin warning system to help him acclimatise to the new car but later found it was unreliable and could have affected his lap times.

"We've obviously gone the wrong way with something. In the first session we were eighth but I think that was because other teams didn't use new tyres so I don't think we've lost heaps in the later sessions. I think we may have gone backwards a little bit but we just weren't there in the first place."

St?phane Sarrazin
Team BOC Co-Driver
"I asked for the braking lights to be put in the car but it wasn't working well so I was not using the car at 100% in my two sessions. I went out again in the fourth session without the lights and it was much better but we don't like so much the handling.

"Surfers Paradise is a proper street track. I like a lot but you need to be confident everywhere and I'm not yet. I need to do more laps and improve myself but it will be OK."
