News // BRIGHT HITS OUT AFTER 'GUT WRENCHING' ACCIDENT

Just two weeks after Jason Bright's huge smash in Adelaide the Team BOC driver was once again rueing the cost of misjudging qualifying at Albert Park today.

Bright's hotlap was red-flagged in yesterday's qualifying leaving him 25th for today's 13-lap qualifying race. Just two laps in however disaster struck as Michael Patrizi and Steve Owen made contact in front of him, colliding with Bright and pushing him into the wall.

With less than three hours before the next race Team BOC's crew was once again stretched to breaking point but finished repairs in the nick of time. Bright went on to finish 25th.

Bright is now calling on V8 officials to enforce the rules they stress during driver briefings after it was decided to take no further action against Patrizi or Owen.

V8 Supercars has one race tomorrow, at 15.20.

Team BOC
"It was unbelievable, after what the guys have been through this last fortnight, to see the car all smashed up again after the second lap. It's gut wrenching especially when the car has been so quick all weekend. One bad lap in qualifying and we end up battling with guys we shouldn't be battling with and get caught up in their mess.

"I think they all felt the desperation of not being in the bottom three and, in the end, it cost everybody. Neither Owen nor Patrizi were prepared to leave racing room, but those are the rules. The officials, once again, haven't done anything about it, even though they tell us at every driver briefing to leave each other racing room. This is the perfect opportunity to enforce the rule and they don't do anything about it, but I've come to expect that.

"The crew did an awesome job to get the car out there. It was all a bit of a rush, with a couple of things not right, but the main thing was we got out there and got a bit of a feel for it."
