Brad Jones Racing has given racing fans a sneak peek of how Jason Bright’s Team #8 BOC Holden Commodore will look for the upcoming V8 Supercars season.
Bright started his 2011 campaign strongly with regular top-ten finishes and two race wins – he was even considered a title contender – but his championship run faded badly at the mid-point of the season, and this was compounded when he fractured a rib and missed three races late in the season.
But in many ways, the team’s championship challenge represented a major change in the team’s fortunes. Bright’s two wins were the team’s first in its history.
“Last year was pretty special for me to be able to deliver BOC its first couple of wins after their long standing support,” Bright said when looking back at his 2011 season.
“They can rest assured that in 2012 I am aiming even higher than just a couple of wins and I look forward to working with them along the way.”
The Albury-based team is now entering its tenth season with BOC as its title sponsor, and it’s now approaching the 2012 season with two new drivers in its three-car line-up – Fabian Coulthard and rookie Dave Wall – after dispensing with the services of the underperforming Jason Bargwanna and the Kelly Racing-bound Karl Reindler.
