Brighty's Back In A Ford

Launch season continues for the Supercar contenders with the arrival of Jason Bright's new rig.

The veteran's crossed back over to the Blue Oval after a number of years steering for Brad Jones Racing.

This time round though, Bright will race on a Racing Entitlements Contract - basically a competition licence - he co-owns.

It'll be painted in the white, black, purple and blue colours of major sponsor MEGA Limited, which is petroleum company.

Is he worried about the transition to the Ford set-up? Not really after a quick fang in the FG Falcon late last year.

"The car didn't do anything surprising but it was quite different to what I'm used to. Having said that I was comfortable in the car quite quickly and that will only improve when it is set up to my specifications.

Gary Jacobsen will co-drive with Bright for the Enduro Cup rounds which include Bathurst and Sandown.

A test at Sydney Motorsport Park looms for the drivers later this month ahead of the series-opening Clipsal 500 from March 2-5.
