SLEUTH STATS

- 0.0005s is the pole-winning Margin between Jason Bright and Jamie Whincup on Sunday in 2014 after Craig Lowndes was given a grid position penalty, despite qualifying fastest.

- This time last year Jason celebrated his 500th Supercars race start at the Townsville event. Team BOC ran a special one off livery, the 2011 Team BOC livery, in which Jason scored the teams’ first main game race win. 

- Jason’s best result at Townsville was in Saturday’s 2013 race where he finished 5th.

- Twelve different drivers have claimed the 15 available pole positions in Townsville from 2009 to 2015, but only five drivers have won races in Townsville – Whincup, Tander, Winterbottom, Courtney and Davison.
