- 2019 V8 Supercar Championship Season - News - GOOD RECOVERY AFTER NIGHTMARE WEEKEND
News // GOOD RECOVERY AFTER NIGHTMARE WEEKEND

Friday's damage seemed to put a Team BOC recovery out of reach at the Gold Coast this weekend but the crew defied the odds to bank a 15th place finish today.

After missing one of Friday's practice sessions and all yesterday's on-track running, however, Jason Bright and co-driver Andrew Jones were at a major disadvantage.

Bright qualified 27th and Jones started the race, running until lap 65. Bright took over behind the safety car and initially lost several positions as he became accustomed to the aggressive circuit before climbing back to 15th by the chequered flag.

Phillip Island is the penultimate round of the season and will be held on 22-23 November.

Jason Bright
Team BOC
"I was still trying to figure the joint out on the restart and I just got bombed by a few guys and went backwards.

"Once I got into the rhythm the pace was alright compared to some of the guys I was around but we were nowhere compared to the guys running at the front. I assume that's because the car wasn't right after the rebuild, which is to be expected.

"We just have to get back to the workshop and give it a good going through before we have a test next week. Hopefully we'll find something else wrong."

Andrew Jones
Team BOC Co-Driver
"I went into today's race thinking it was just the start of any other race and tried to get into the rhythm as quickly as I could. I made a mistake over the back and went down the escape road. That hurt a little bit because we lost the back of the train.

"We weren't the fastest car out there but I thought I was motoring along OK. Given we were 140 laps behind everyone else, taking into account the missed practice sessions and yesterday's qualifying and race, we thought if we could finish in the 15 that would be a good day."
