BRIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP PROSPECTS WITH STONE BROTHERS RACING

In a bold announcement Fujitsu Racing's Jason Bright has revealed that he will be setting his sights on winning the 2009 V8 Supercar Championship Series behind the wheel of a Stone Brothers Racing (SBR) prepared Ford Falcon.

Bright's #25 Fujitsu Racing entry and key staff from his Britek Motorsport operation will relocate to SBRs Queensland based facility, and equally as boldly, create a three-car "Superteam" to take on the likes of the Holden Racing Team, Triple Eight Race Engineering and Ford Performance Racing.

An enthusiastic Bright is convinced the alignment of the two operations will see instant success on track.

"This is the perfect opportunity to return to the pointy end of the field and the timing for this merger has never been better," said Bright.

"I've tried to push the Fujitsu Racing Falcon well into the top ten and have done so on a number of occasions. However, with a new car coming on stream and the changes in fuel technology we simply don't have the resources, or time, to research and develop what is needed to be competitive.

"Ross and Jimmy Stone have made great strides in these areas and already have a race-winning package.

"I am delighted to be able to return to a team I enjoyed so much success with when I first started my V8 Supercar career. I'm after my first V8 championship starting right now."

A decision on the second, currently IRWIN Industrial Tools sponsored, Britek entry will not be made until early December, but this car would also benefit from the SBR alignment and all options are currently being considered.
