STORY OF THE DAY

Not even .5 of a second off the pole sitter, Jason qualified in 14th for today’s 200kms race. A rough start off the line and a safety car where Jason was forced to sit behind his team-mate and wait to pit meant he went abruptly from 14th to 22nd position. The team made the strategy move to put soft tyres on, hoping that all the rain that had been predicted was on its way. By making this decision when other teams elected to use their hard tyres Jason was on a charge through the field. He had made his way from 22nd position to 7th position, passing half of the competition! After the rain finally came everyone pitted for wet weather tyres, as the rain also brought out a safety car the field was bunched and had to complete a restart. Jason had a flyer of a restart managing to jump past a number of cars to get up into 4th position. With a battle between Reynolds and McLaughlin in front he soon capitalised on this as well and moved into 2nd position. His Freightliner Racing team-mate Fabian Coulthard was also on a charge and eventually got past Jason for 2nd position. Due to the rain the race was shortened and on the final lap… almost disaster. Shane Van Gisbergen had been catching Brighty quickly and on trying to get past hit him off the track, sending him into a wild spin. Lucky he was able to get back on track and rejoin in the same position. From here he pressed on for the final laps and claimed his first podium result of the season. A stellar effort by Jason and the crew at Team BOC.

JASONS WORD

“It was action packed early on there in today’s race. We had to double stack there after the first lap incident. I missed the chance to get in the pits any earlier so it put us right down the order.”

(On the last lap incident) “I could see Shane coming up on us and at turn 4 I thought I gave him enough room but he came in quite hot, he nailed me in the door and I ended up spinning on the grass. I didn’t think I was going to be able to get off the grass as I was spinning for a while there. I grabbed the pit lane limiter and putted out of there and when I came to the track I just went for it.”

“Shane realised he was coming on strong, our tyres probably weren’t the right pressure but we held onto it. He came up and apologised afterwards.”

“It was great to have a podium today, it has been a fair while since we’ve been up here. I feel like our pace in the wet has been good for a while now and it’s paid off today.”
