The BF Ford Falcons of Jason Bright and Marcus Marshall have been unveiled at the team's Dandenong base today, with two new-look Fujitsu and Irwin liveries on show.

Bright's 2008 Fujitsu Racing Falcon has a revised paint scheme with white replacing the red used by the car during last year.

Phil Perham, Fujitsu General's Manager of Sales and Marketing, affirmed the company's support of Jason Bright's team, which is entering its fourth year of competition.

"Fujitsu General is once again happy to be onboard with Jason Bright and Britek Motorsport for 2008," said Perham.

"With a fresh new livery design for the car and team and with the experiences gained over the past few seasons, we are looking forward to a successful year on the track.

"During 2007 the team showed a lot of promise without tasting any real success. Hopefully with a little luck this promise can be turned into some on-track results in 2008!"

Irwin Industrial Tools will enter its second year of support for Britek Motorsport's second car.

Marcus Marshall, a former Champ Car and V8 endurance driver, will pilot the #26 Falcon in 2008, and Irwin's Managing Director, Nick Pritchard, is anticipating a strong performance this year.

"We are delighted with the look of the 08 IRWIN Racing Falcon," said Pritchard.

"IRWIN has made a commitment through to the end of 2009 with this program and with the new look and new driver in Marcus Marshall, we are sure to get some great benefits from our V8 Supercar programme.

"Britek Motorsport has been first-class in their approach to the 2008 season and we can't wait to hit the track in Adelaide."

Team owner and lead driver, Jason Bright, is expecting an improved performance from his team, and has set goals to gain consistent results.

"We have launches, photo and media sessions, plus a very important test at Winton Motor Raceway on Tuesday 12 February," said Bright.

"Our goals for 2008 include running the Fujitsu entry in the top-10 consistently and bringing the IRWIN car into the top half of the field.

"The competition is extremely tough and for us to achieve our goals we will really have to earn it.

"As an organisation Britek Motorsport is prepared to give it everything and I'm sure we can really turn some heads this year."

Fujitsu Racing and Irwin Racing will hit the track for the first time in 2008 at the upcoming V8 Supercar test day, before the opening championship round in Adelaide on February 21.
