News // BRIGHT LIMPS HOME IN 24TH

Lingering damage to Jason Bright's Team BOC Commodore is thought to be the cause of his lacklustre pace at Symmons Plains today.

Brighty, who has been the innocent party in two large shunts so far this season, says the car behaved strangely throughout today's 59-lap race and suspects a cracked rear bar or something similar.

He eventually finished 24th, several laps down, after an early collision with Jonathan Webb. The Tekno Racing driver, who spun out on the first lap, misjudged a pass on Bright and collected his bumper as he skimmed off the front of Team BOC's car into the gravel for the second time in ten laps.

There will be one final practice session tomorrow at 10.05am before qualifying at 13.00 and the 84-lap race at 15.35.

"I'm bitterly disappointed about the result but something didn't feel right today. I nearly spun the first couple of laps and was locking front tyres throughout the race; it was like the rear bar was broken or something. It was by far the worst car I've ever driven.

"Jonathan Webb collected me when he was trying to pass and damaged our front bumper. He made a lunge down the inside and couldn't pull it up. I had to turn in and he collected my bumper at the hairpin as he speared off. The vibration I was having wasn't worth a big crash when there could have been a big chunk missing from the wheel so we decided to pit and repair the damage."
