FPR AND BRIGHT TO GO THEIR SEPARATE WAYS IN 2007

June 23, 2006 - Ford Performance Racing (FPR) today confirms that 2005 and 2006 CAT FPR Falcon driver, Jason Bright, will not be driving for the team beyond December 31, 2006.

FPR is currently negotiating with several appropriately credentialed local and international drivers to fill one of the Prodrive team's driver's positions alongside Mark Winterbottom for the 2007 Australian V8 Supercar Championship Series and beyond.

FPR Commercial Director Rod Barrett stated, "We wish Jason every success with his plans for the future and thank him for his efforts in helping to develop our cars to being amongst the fastest on the track. We expect to make an announcement about his replacement in the coming months,"

"Jason and the team still have nine rounds to contest this season. One of the main aims is to gain Ford's first Bathurst victory since 1998. Overall, winning races is where the team's focus is set for the remainder of the season," Rod added.
