JASON BRIGHT: V8 SLEUTH PODCAST

JASON Bright joins us for this week’s episode of the V8 Sleuth Podcast powered by Timken.

The Bathurst 1000 winner and Supercars veteran has driven a diverse range of cars across his career so far, and our chat covered most of them!

Brighty talked about his one-off Indycar race on home soil at Gold Coast Indy in 2000, along with his Indy Lights season that same year – including the gruesome injury he received after a huge practice shunt. He also tells a hilarious story about the day he was supposed to have his first Indycar test in 1996, although he certainly didn’t find it very funny at the time…

We then drill down on his Supercars career, including his frank assessment of his time at the Holden Racing Team, how his deal to switch to Ford came together – and then how it all came apart – and his winning years with Brad Jones Racing, along with tackling your National Motor Racing Museum Couch Racer Questions plus our traditional MotorFocus Top 10 Shootout.

We also reveal the winners of the V8 Sleuth Podcast Trivia Competition!
