Follow Jason Bright

One of Australia’s best internationally credentialed drivers in recent years with success in Indy Lights and sportscar racing, Jason Bright was the 1995 Australian Formula Ford Champion and Australian Drivers Champion in Formula Holden in 1997.

After making his V8 Supercars debut at Symmons Plains, he was snapped up to share a Falcon with Alan Jones at Sandown and Bathurst.

Bright took the seat from Jones in the newly-renamed Stone Brothers Racing in 1998 and promptly won Bathurst before heading back to America in 2000 to pursue his dreams of Indy/Champ Car racing.

He returned home to sign full-time for the Holden Racing Team in 2001 and has since driven for Team Brock/PWR Racing and Ford Performance Racing.

In 2005 he established Britek Motorsport while still driving for FPR, and finally took the seat in his own team for the 2007 season.

Bright joined BJR in 2010, but 2013 was his most successful year with the team, with four pole positions and two race wins, including an emotional victory at Pukekohe to claim the Jason Richards Memorial Trophy, finishing seventh in the Championship.

After a long stint with the Albury-based team, this year Bright has elected to go his own way and has taken his REC (Racing Entitlement Contract) to Prodrive to challenge in the Ford Falcon FG X.
