Rain hampered V8 Supercar running today at Winton Motor Raceway, Team BOC's home track, but Jason Bright finished practice in the top ten despite stoppages for stranded cars.
Bright, who was in the top two quickest during wet spells, believes the team should be quick in the wet or dry for the weekend's races saying today's practice slick tyres were poor.
One final practice session will begin tomorrow at 09.30 before qualifying for the two-part 120km race begins at 12.25.
"It dried out from about 20 mins into today's last session but there were so many red flags; it was just a weird session. Every time a car went off they just couldn't get back onto the track so they had to be towed.
"We only got one hit on our last set of tyres. We weren't really happy with it but, given it's a usual Friday and we don't know what tyres everyone's got and, knowing ours weren't that great, I'm happy with 10th. I was surprised to hear that we were 10th.
"We were very strong in the wet. We were P1 and P2 for the whole first period whilst it was wet. Andy [Jones] did one lap and was P1 for the whole of the co-driver session but I think we'll be strong in the dry too. We didn't have good tyres for that run at the end of the session and didn't end up as far off as I would have expected on that set of tyres. Our car was strong here in the dry on our last test day so I'm not fussed."
