- 2019 V8 Supercar Championship Season - News - LOWNDES ENDS BRIGHTS PODIUM CHARGE
News // LOWNDES ENDS BRIGHT'S PODIUM CHARGE

Qualifying third at Phillip Island today was the best indication so far that Team BOC is on the path to victory according to Jason Bright.

It was the team's highest qualifying performance on control tyres since Bright joined the squad in 2010 and he looked certain to convert it into a podium before Craig Lowndes ran into him on lap 16.

Lowndes was given a drive-through penalty and Bright recovered to finish 8th after 32 laps.

Bright says if the team's rate of improvement continues he expects to be extremely strong for tomorrow's race, which starts at 15.40.

"It was cat and mouse coming out of the pits today because the tyres were so hard to get up to temperature. We had warm tyres already when Shane Van Gisbergen came out on cold tyres. I got on his inside into Turn Two and we were side-by-side into Turn Three when Lowndes ran into the back of me and sent me into the sand trap.

"I'm sure he didn't mean it but it cost us both and, at that stage of the race with around 18-20 laps to go, there was a lot more racing to do.

"I think we definitely could have ended up with a podium today so tomorrow I think we've got a good shot. Given how much we've changed, and the rate that we're improving, if we can keep it up tomorrow we'll be very strong.

"I'm really happy with Qualifying. It's the best qualifying we've had in the dry for a very long time and definitely the best qualifying we've had on hard tyres since I've been at Team BOC. I'm very happy "
