BJR liveries will remain the same for this week’s round with Nick Percat in the #8 Dunlop Super Dealer Racing Commodore and stablemate Todd Hazelwood in the #14 Plus Fitness Racing ZB. Both drivers have practiced hard over Easter and they’re both eyeing off some good results.
“The racing was really fun, and I enjoyed getting my competitive side flowing again,” said Percat.
“I had some great battles at Phillip Island and look forward to racing at two iconic tracks up next. leading into the next round, I’ve been working on improving my strategy and more testing in race runs so I know exactly how much fuel to put in.”
And for the first time, prize money has also been introduced with a $1000 prize for the round winner, donated to the driver’s charity of choice.
