- 2019 V8 Supercar Championship Season - News - NEXT WEEKS TEST IS TIMELY
News // NEXT WEEK'S TEST IS TIMELY

Qualifying turmoil left Jason Bright with a mountain to climb in today's race at Townsville and the Team BOC driver is now counting down the days until next week's test.

A red flag in the last five minutes of the morning's qualifying session meant Bright, who had just started his one flying lap, had to pit and queue behind the entire field. The disadvantage saw him qualifying 17th compared to fourth yesterday.

Bright lost more track position on Lap One after several cars behind him barged through across the curbs and, to add insult to injury, was then given a pit lane penalty for tagging one of them as he drove back through.

He eventually finished 16th, saying the team is long overdue a test to reassert the advantage it had earlier in the year.

V8 Supercars will be back in action at Queensland Raceway from 26-28 July.

"We need to improve. We're just not quick enough at the moment and we haven't got the advantage we had a couple of rounds ago. Hopefully this two-day test helps.

"We just had better qualifying pace a couple of rounds ago and the other area we need to work on particularly are my starts and we've got a whole bunch of stuff to try there.

"Our race pace was good yesterday but we were up against it today after qualifying mid-pack. We took more risks and pushed too hard on the tyres. They just had nothing left at the end there.

"The red flag in qualifying ruined our day really. We went out intending to be the first one on the track and ended up being the last. We wanted to make sure we weren't getting held up but we had to drive out at the back of the queue and didn't get to warm our tyres properly and went into Turn One with no heat in the tyres. My first lap in qualifying was my only lap and that was on used tyres from yesterday.

"Lap One was crazy. At Turn One I had cars driving down the inside, off the track, and passing me. Nothing was done about it but that's just typical of the stewards all year. I'm sure that will happen at a lot of race meetings from now on this year."
