Bright’s gets new V8 Supercar chassis for 2016

Team BOC is the latest of the V8 Supercar teams to reveal its war paint for the season ahead, the deal also delivering a new chassis for stalwart Jason Bright.

After his milestone year in 2015 – claiming his 50th V8SC podium and 500th V8SC race start - Bright is lining up for his seventh season with the team while BOC heads into its 12th season as a naming rights sponsor. It makes BOC the longest current naming rights sponsor of any V8 Supercar team in the field.

This colorful livery will be debuted on one of the two brand new chassis that are currently being built in the Albury workshop.

Bright’s new car, BJR 006, will be his third next gen chassis while both cars will be shaken down at Winton on February 22.

“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,” he added. “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 Tim’s 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.”
