Lost in a special moment.

Jason Bright very fittingly won the Jason Richards Memorial Trophy in New Zealand as part of the latest V8 Supercar round.  Brighty was Jason's teammate before he had to leave the sport, and now drives Jason's car (same sponsor - BOC - and number 8).  The team is still very connected to the Richards family after Jason lost his brief fight with cancer in 2011, so it was good to see them win the first memorial trophy.

However, Brighty may want to be a bit more aware of his surroundings when jumping up on the podium.  It certainly was one of those heart warming moments in sport though.  Having met Jason Richards through my chaplaincy work I'll admit that I was moved to tears today, especially when his daughter jumped into Jason Bright's arms and presented him with a painting she'd made for him.
