Team BOC and Brad Jones Racing have unveiled the new-look livery that Jason Bright will carry on his #8 Holden Commodore in the 2012 V8 Supercars Championship.

The coming season marks BOC's 10th year of sponsoring Brad Jones Racing, a partnership which began in 2003 when Andrew Jones won funding for his V8 Supercars Development Series car, taking the series title the following year.

To celebrate the milestone, the new look draws its inspiration from previous BOC Commodores, most notably that of the car that the late Jason Richards drove in 2009.

Entering his third year with the team, Bright will again drive the same Commodore that delivered BJR its first wins in V8 Supercars last year at Barbagallo and Winton.

After struggling with a poor run of form in mid-season and then missing three races with a broken rib, Bright went on to finish last season in 16th, but both BJR and BOC are optimistic that Bright can deliver in 2012.

“Last year was pretty special for me to be able to deliver BOC its first couple of wins after their long standing support,” Bright said.

“They can rest assured that in 2012 I am aiming even higher than just a couple of wins and I look forward to working with them along the way.”

BOC's general manager Bruce Currie added: “BOC is both proud and excited to be entering its 10th year supporting Team BOC in V8 Supercars,”

“This significant milestone is testament to the strong relationship the team has built over the years with our employees and our customers. We really hope that 2012 can be a fabulous year for all involved.”

The 2012 BOC livery will be on show at the official test day at Sandown on 11 February.
