2010 will see Brad Jones Racing take to the grid with a new driving lineup. Kiwi Jason Richards will remain in the Team BOC Commodore and be joined by V8 Supercar star Jason Bright.
As the only V8 Supercar teams to be located in a regional centre, Albury (NSW) based BJR has one of the strongest pedigrees in Australian motorsport. With brothers Brad and Kim at the helm, BJR have won ten national titles in five different categories, in over 17 years of professional motorsport.
Having won in championships in AUSCAR (4), NASCAR (1) and Production Cars (1) and after five years as the official Audi Australia factory team, during which it twice won the driver championship and the manufacturer's crown, Brad and Kim moved into the world of V8 Supercar.
In 2001, the Jones brothers established their V8 Supercar outfit from the assets of Tony Longhurst's Falcon team - including his car and Level One franchise.
In their fourth season campaigning V8 Supercar's, they won their first V8 Supercar title; the 2004 Konica Minolta V8 Supercar Series with Andrew Jones at the wheel.
Since then, the team freely admits they have not yet reached their full potential, other than blistering performances at the legendary Bathurst 1000.
2006 and 2007 didn't go to plan for the team. With several driver lineup and management changes the team struggled to find their feet. In 2008 however, the team joined forces with Holden, and signed a supply agreement with Walkinshaw Performance to bring the team back to the forfront of Australian Motorsport.
2009 saw a continuation of the Walkinshaw Performance supply agreement. Jason Richards was very fast early in the season scoring top 5 finishes at the first few rounds. A pole position at Hidden Valley and a podium finish at the Bathurst 1000 were the highlights for the Albury based outfit.
Jason Bright’s signing to replace the retiring Cam McConville, for the 2010 season now places BJR in a strong position. The team were also successful in securing Trading Post as naming rights sponsors for the No 14 VE Commodore. Fair Dinkum Sheds joined the team as naming rights sponsor on a third VE Commodore to be driven by V8 Rookie Karl Reindler. BJR will prepare and run this car under Jason Bright’s Britek licence. With over 23years V8 supercar experience behind the wheels of the two BJR Commodore this year, big things are expected from the Albury outfit.
