Pro­drive team seeks Bright spot mile­stone

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

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.
