Story of the day

After last year's strong pace, much was expected of the Team BOC VF Commodore at Phillip Island and straight out of the box the car was fast and competitive. The team's primary focus through the day's three practice sessions was to improve handling balance on the fast, flowing, Island track. Despite a scary off track moment at turn on in second practice, everything ran smoothly with top 10 lap times in the opening two sessions. In final practice Bright was left with only one flying lap at the end of the session to set a fast time but a mistake at the hairpin cost him a chance to finish in the top 10. All up it was a good first day for Team BOC.

Driver Quotes

Jason Bright

“I don’t think we’re too bad. This is the sort of track that does suit us. I’d be disappointed if we weren’t strong here to be honest. In the second session I had an off at turn one. That’s our weakest sector and I had to find out if it was me who was being a bit soft but as soon I tried to go a little bit deeper I was off at 240 kays! It was pretty wild but luckily the grass is dry enough and there’s plenty of bitumen there now to wipe off a bit of speed before you hit the grass. It definitely got my attention. In the final session the car was alright but I didn’t manage to put a lap together. We left it pretty late to go out and I only got one flyer and didn’t do a good job of it. I think we could’ve easily been in the top 10. All the teams will probably be a little bit stronger tomorrow but I think we’ve got top 10 pace here.
