News // BRIGHT SALVAGES VITAL RESULT

Damage sustained during the rolling start at Darwin today looked certain to end Team BOC's race but Jason Bright nursed the car home for an important points haul.

Will Davison spun on the start of today's second leg, causing a chain reaction back to Bright in ninth place. From that point Bright's splitter was cutting into the car's front tyres, which started delaminating with five laps to go. Then, whilst running fourth, Bright's splitter broke and he limped home in eighth after 42 laps.

The result has secured third place in the championship for Bright thanks to Davison's DNF.

Qualifying for tomorrow's two races starts at 9.55am with the first race at 1.15pm.

"We probably didn't qualify as well as we should have and made an absolutely woeful start so we had a fair bit of work to do. The car had really good speed for half the race but probably wasn't looking after its tyres quite as well as we're used to.

"I started ninth in the second half and got tangled up in all the melee at the hairpin and somehow, even though I copped hits from every direction, we drove through and the steering was still straight. Unfortunately it damaged the splitter and that was rubbing on the tyre from then on. It probably hurt our race a little bit but we were sitting in fourth place and really didn't expect to be there after the start we'd had.

"Then the splitter broke with two laps to go at the end of the straight, which meant I couldn't pull the car up. The last couple of laps we were just hanging on. It's a shame because, up until five laps from the end, we had really good pace and then it looks like the right front tyre started to delaminate from all the cutting on the splitter and we lost pace. Up until that point I don't think Webby would have been able to put any pressure on."
