Bright targets Darwin success.

Fujitsu Racing's Jason Bright will hope to impress again as he heads to one of his most successful circuits in the V8 Supercar Championship for the sixth round of this year's title chase.

Bright's overall record at Hidden Valley Raceway reads one round win, plus two other podium finishes, as well as three pole positions from nine starts. Indeed, Hidden Valley was the venue for Bright's first overall round win in the series as well as first-ever pole position.

“Darwin is a great track and a place I really enjoy visiting,” he said. “The whole atmosphere and the chance to escape the Victorian winter really works for me and I look forward to the race every year.

“I firmly believe that we can enjoy a very good result in the top-end. Our previous race at Sandown was far from our best and the entire team is keen to get back inside the top-10 in Darwin. If we get inside the top-ten in qualifying, from that point I'm sure we can justifiably look at moving further up over the weekend.”

Fujitsu Racing chief engineer Geoff Slater said he was looking forward to the Darwin challenge.

“After the wintery conditions we had at Sandown, at least in Darwin we will be guaranteed warm and dry conditions at this time of the year,” he said. “The track presents its own challenges with the long straight and the technical section around the back.

“We are very happy with the handling in our Ford Falcon V8 Supercar and our engine shop has been working very hard to improve that end of the deal as well.”
