Story of the day

Bright and the Team BOC VF Commodore were on the pace straight away, finishing first practice in fourth position. Unfortunately early in the second session the car suffered damage to the rear of the car after Bright locked the rear brakes and spun into the tyre barriers. The damage was largely cosmetic and the car was repaired in time for the third session where Bright again showed the potential of the car with a strong 9th place finish.

Driver Quotes

Jason Bright

“The car is strong. They weren’t very good laps at the end of the final session – the car was up on two wheels a couple of times but we’re still up there in the times. I think there’s a lot more in it. If we can put in some nice clean laps and settle it down over the kerbs I think we’ll be in a good position tomorrow. Losing time by sitting out the second session cost us a little bit. We would have gotten a bit more time to notice what the car was doing over the kerbs. It’s hard to say. It’s all about settling the car down now for tomorrow.”

On the spin in the second practice session: “It was just a simple spin. I locked the wheels and just backed it in to the tyres.
