New car, paint for Jason Bright

Jason Bright will have a brand new Brad Jones Racing Commodore, and a brand new livery, when the V8 Supercars season kicks off next month.

Veteran V8 star Bright will step into chassis BJR006 for the 2016 season, a brand new car which will have its very first run at the Winton test day on February 22.

And it will sport a fresh livery as well, with BOC signing on for a 12th season as a naming rights sponsor in V8 Supercars.

“It’s always nice to get a new car and the preparations are coming along really well,” said Bright.

“The crew have had a little bit longer to build this car than they did with ‘Brodie’.’

“I felt like we were moving forward at the end of last year and we need to take that momentum into the start of this season. We want to improve on last years’ results and be battling for podiums like we did at the end of 2015.

“I’m excited to be working alongside the two Tims (ED: Tim Slade and Tim Blanchard) this year. They’ll fit into the team really well and I think they will hit the ground running.

“There have been a lot of changes up and down pit-lane and I feel like we will be a competitive group.”

Bright’s new car is one of two new chassis that have been built by BJR in the off-season, Slade set to race the other new car.
