The Dunlop Super Dealer Racing Commodore and Nick Percat prepare to take on the Supercar world for the BP Supercar All Stars Eseries starting tomorrow night.
The famous Dunlop colours have featured on the #8 Brad Jones Racing Commodore at a number of Supercar events over the last four years, becoming a fan favourite, and now extending this to tracks around the world with the Eseries.
The 10-week series will see drivers battle it out on track from the comfort of their own homes, giving fans their weekly Supercar fix by watching and hearing all the action live via FOX Sports 506, Kayo, Ten Play and LIVE streamed across the BJR Facebook page.
2020 marks Dunlop Tyres’ 19th season supplying the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship and Senior Brand Manager, Tony Kiernan is delighted to now add iRacing to the brands portfolio, “Dunlop is pleased to see a Dunlop Super Dealer Racing livery for Nick Percat in the Supercars All Stars Eseries.
“The striking yellow and black design always looks great and is just as eye-catching on Nick’s iRacing ride. While a return to normal racing is a little way off, it’s fantastic Dunlop Super Dealer Racing can support BJR in this innovative virtual racing format that will create excitement and engagement for not only Supercars fans but motorsport fans all over the world.”
Nick Percat is not new to the iRacing world having been involved for a number of years and he is looking forward to the challenge, “I’ve had a sim since 2012 and have been using iRacing since then. I have never really taken it too seriously but I’ve been practicing a lot more now and will fire up and get into the sim groove tomorrow!
I’m excited just to race something! I’d race the trolley around the supermarket if I was allowed to. This is a great platform for Supercars to still provide our fans and sponsors some entertainment. Spa is definitely a track I’m keen to race at. I went to the F1 event last year and imagined driving the Supercar there. Now I can! I’ll be giving it a good hard crack!”
We’re all set to get the (virtual) engines started again and go racing tomorrow night, 7pm AEST. Don’t miss it!
