The livery for Jason Bright’s Britek Motorsport Ford Falcon has been unveiled ahead of the 2017 Supercars season, as well as a new co-driver with Dunlop Super2 Series champion Garry Jacobson.
Bright rejoined Britek Motorsport and Prodrive Racing Australia for this season, having last raced for them in 2006, and got a first taste of the Falcon late last year.
“The car didn’t do anything surprising but it was quite different to what I’m used to,” said Bright to supercars.com.au.
“Having said that I was comfortable in the car quite quickly and that will only improve when it is set up to my specifications. How the car behaves will obviously be different again when we go to Sydney Motorsport Park for the test day as well, particularly with the introduction of the new tyre construction so it’ll be a lot to acclimatise to on one day but I’m confident that I’ll be ready to take on Clipsal by the end of it.”
Jacobson will make his Supercars debut in the endurance races together with Bright.
“It’s an honour to be given the opportunity to drive alongside Brighty in the Supercars main series as a co-driver,” said Jacobson.
“It’s exciting for me to gain even more experience in these cars and it shows that the team and Tim (Edwards, Team Principal) trust in my ability and trust that I can do the job on the day.”
