Nick Percat will run the Dunlop colours in Darwin

Nick Percat will sport the colours of Dunlop for this weekend’s BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown.

The #8 Brad Jones Racing Holden ZB Commodore will utilise the eye catching yellow and black livery that was used at the Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint in April.

Dunlop has been a long time supporter of the Albury squad with the tyre brand taking naming rights sponsorship on the car at events in 2017 and last year.

Percat heads to the Top End lying seventh in the standings off the back of 10 top 10 results in as many races.

The South Australian has form at Hidden Valley having claimed his first podium for BJR at the circuit in 2017.

“The Hidden Valley circuit has been a happy hunting ground for us in the past,” said Percat.

“My Saturday podium result here a few years ago was a super memorable moment for the team and I; it was my first podium finish with BJR and even though we came home in third, the way these guys cheer you would have thought we won it. 

“We’ll be doing all we can to get back up on the podium again this year.” 

Brad Jones Racing will field four cars in Darwin following the confirmation that Jack Smith will run in a wildcard entry.

The #8 Dunlop entry will head out on track for the first time on Friday with opening practice scheduled for 1110 local time/1140 AEST. comment policy
