Mechanics worked wonders on Jason Bright's car at Phillip Island today, elevating Team BOC from 21st in Practice One to fourth overall by the end of the day.
Bright said it felt like a different car when he emerged onto the track following a one-hour gap between his two on-track sessions today.
Tomorrow will see one final practice to tune this set-up before Qualifying at 12.55 and Race 32 at 14.45.
"We lost a bit of time in my first practice session because we had a few problems and I wasn't happy with the car. We just had no flow. I think we rectified that for Practice Three; immediately the car was better so we were able to tune from there.
"I'm much happier with the car now. I think we're at least in the ball park but there's more to come. We've eliminated a lot of the problem but we've got tonight to really hone in on it. We've got a good direction.
"I was really looking forward to driving on the resurfaced track here this weekend because I heard it has a lot of grip but that's not much fun with under-steer and over-steer all over the place!"
