Anticipation is building for this afternoon when qualifying for this year?s Great Race at Bathurst will get underway and Team BOC is looking strong.
Jason Bright and Andrew Jones had a strong performance in yesterday?s practice, consistently in the top five quickest cars despite using old tyres.
Bright?s last two visits to The Mountain have produced top-5 finishes and he is now hopeful of climbing onto the podium again come Sunday for the fourth time in his career.
Bright and endurance co-driver Jones will be on track from 9.25am today for another practice session and qualifying commences at 2.45pm.
?Like many other drivers, we opted to save this weekend's allocation of new tyres for the qualifying session.
?The car was better in the last practice session. We had better pace than other cars around us, but not as good as where we need to be up in the 2m07s.?
Team BOC Co-Driver
?We will have to wait until qualifying this afternoon to see where we actually are, but there's a lot of promise. The car felt great, we did make some slight adjustments last night, which could see us top the qualifying chart."
