News // ROLLERCOASTER RACE ENDS IN WALL

Twists and turns dominated Team BOC's efforts at Townsville today and, unfortunately, the last was a broken anti-roll bar that saw Jason Bright's amazing recovery end in the wall.

From 22nd on the grid Bright made a perfect start and took an early safety car to change onto the faster soft-rubber tyre. He blazed through the field to P12 by lap 30 before the roll bar broke not long after.

He continued but, a few laps later, the damage caused Bright to lock up going into Turn One. Unfortunately the road ahead was blocked as Tony D'Alberto and Michael Caruso battled for position and Bright struck the GRM car, putting himself out of the race.

V8 Supercars qualifying starts tomorrow at 12.35pm.

"I locked the right-front tyre as soon as I got on the brakes. I looked for a gap but the whole track was covered. I hit the back of the GRM car and I'm sorry for them but I did my best to miss everyone. I wasn't going for a passing move; I was just trying to pull it up.

"I haven't really been happy with the braking all weekend and brakes are usually our strong point so I'm hoping this is the reason. It's just a shame it decided to give up the lap there wasn't any room to go down the slip road.

"From where we started the race, the early stop really got us back in the hunt. We would have been able to go to lap 52 before pitting and I'm sure we would have come home pretty strong.

"The car was better in the race than qualifying. We had better pace than the cars around us but not as good as we need to be. We've shown we can be better so we need to fix it up for tomorrow and see where we went wrong."
