Jason Bright has purchased two Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR cars to compete in the TCR Australia Series.
The 1998 Bathurst 1000 winner visiting the TCR Asia event at Sepang last weekend and secured two Golf cars from Team Engstler and will enter them under the name of Team Tradie.
While Bright is aiming for on-track success in TCR Australia, he is also developing a unique competition that will see one lucky winner drive the Volkswagen TCR car at the end of the year.
Bright made his Australian Touring Car debut in 1997 and went on to have a distinguished career that saw him rack up 260 career starts and claim 50 podium finishes. With notable wins including the Bathurst 1000, Sandown 500 and Adelaide 500, Bright has solidified himself as a household name and fan favourite in the Australian Touring Car scene.
“I’ve have been looking at the TCR Series for some time and it’s great to confirm that I will be driving in the series this year,” said Bright. “The class is perfect: affordable, competitive and relevant to the current motoring market. I really feel it’s going to be a great addition to the motorsport landscape. I went to Malaysia on the weekend and purchased the car that actually won the weekend with Diego Moran. I know it’s got good form, so I can’t wait to get it to Australia, have a test and get ready for Round 1.”
