Jason Bright has taken his first V8 Supercars victory in since 2006, winning Race 8 of the V8 Supercars Championship at Barbagallo Raceway.

After a delayed start due to the start-line incident Karl Reindler and Steve Owen, Bright romped away to the win ahead of TeamVodafone’s Jamie Whincup and Bright’s team-mate Brad Jones Racing.

The result made for an up and down race for Brad Jones Racing, who have scored a double podium and a car that is most likely destroyed (Reindler).

The last time Bright won a V8 Supercars race was in 2006 at Bahrain.

Craig Lowndes (TeamVodafone), Tim Slade (Lucky 7 Racing), Alex Davison (IRWIN Racing), Garth Tander (Toll Holden Racing Team), Will Davison (Trading Post FPR), Lee Holdsworth (Fujitsu Racing) and Shane van Gisbergen (SP Tools Racing) rounded out the top 10.
