Prodrive team seeks Bright spot milestone
SUPERCARS veteran Jason Bright will enter an exclusive club in Townsville, as Prodrive Racing Australia hopes a milestone weekend can spur them to close the gap on their rivals.
Bright will become the fourth driver after Garth Tander, Craig Lowndes and Russell Ingall to compete in 250 championship rounds at this weekend’s Townsville 400.
“It must mean I’ve done something right over the years. It’s pretty cool to be in that company for sure,” Bright said.
While the 44- year- old will be celebrating the personal milestone, his Prodrive team will bring up their 200th round.
Prodrive have been knocked off their perch as the leading Ford team this year.
But Bright believes Prodrive, which has Chaz Mostert, Mark Winterbottom, Cameron Waters and himself in their stable, still has time to bridge the gap.
