- Brad Jones Racing’s Supercars Championship debut came here at Phillip Island back in 2000 – running a single AU Falcon for Brad Jones

- Tim and BJR are chasing their first Phillip Island Supercars win, both the team and Tim have finished on the podium, but have just missed that top step. Tim’s podium finish came here on Saturday in 2012 in the Lucky 7 Falcon run by Stone Brothers Racing.

- The BJR team will run a whopping 7 cars at Phillip Island this weekend – 3 in VASC, 3 in Super2 and one in the Kumho V8 Touring Car Series. No other team in Supercars racing history has done this.

- Tim’s first PI VASC start was here in 2009 with Paul Morris’ team (co-driver to Ingall), he finished in 7th in the 500km race. A solid first hit out at the Island!
