Supercars team Brad Jones Racing will field two Freightliner Racing Commodores the first time ever with Nick Percat unveiling a one-off design for this weekend’s Winton round for his #8 Holden.
Freightliner has been the naming rights sponsor of the #14 Commodore since 2015 while genuine parts supplier Alliance has also backed BJR’s entry in the second tier series driven by Andrew Jones.
Percat, who joined the team this year, is hoping for the same success his teammate Tim Slade enjoyed last year.
“After the success Tim Slade had last year the guys and girls at Freightliner Racing are really excited to go back to Winton,” Percat said.
“Winton is a happy hunting ground for Brad Jones Racing. It would be a dream to get both of the Freightliner Racing Commodores on the podium this weekend. I know the team and I will be doing all we can to get up the front.”
Freightliner Racing debuted a special one-off black and yellow livery for their family brand Alliance Truck Parts for Tim Slade at Townsville last year, and the same contrasting colors are seen here this weekend.
“The Freightliner Racing Commodore looks awesome. It’s a different contrast to the matte black cars in the field and the pops of yellow and chrome will really make it stand out on track,” Percat added.
Freightliner director Stephen Downes said he takes great pride in seeing a second car in the company’s colours this weekend.
“It was great to reveal Nick’s car at the Hartwigs Freightliner Dealership in Albury. It’s even better that we can feature Freightliner on Nick’s car for the teams’ home event, the support the guys get here is really something else,” he asid.
“A lot of eyes will be on both Nick and Tim this weekend, especially after the success Tim had here last year and the team at Freightliner hope both of the cars go well.”
