Biante Model Cars are thrilled to present the Biante backed Brad Jones Racing Holden VF Commodore which will be driven by Nick Percat at the 2017 Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint.
After a long association supporting and producing collectable scale models for Brad Jones Racing, this is the first time a full Biante designed and branded livery will be seen on a Supercar as part of a championship round.
"Biante Model Cars have fantastic relationships with many teams up and down pit lane in the Supercars Championship with our model program. Our ties with Brad, Kim and the team at BJR have always been very strong so it's thrilling to have this opportunity to have a full livery at a championship round." says William Hall, General Manager of Biante Model Cars.
After a brake failure at the Australian Grand Prix saw car 8 badly damaged and withdrawn from the event, Nick Percat is aiming for a change of fortunes in Tasmania with Biante on board;
"We had some bad luck at the AGP with the brake failure but the team have done an outstanding job getting the car back into shape and the Biante livery looks awesome, would make a pretty good model I reckon!"
Team Owner Kim Jones added “We’ve had an association with Biante for over 20 years and it’s fantastic that they are taking up this opportunity to be the naming rights sponsor at Tasmania.”
“There is a strong model car collectors group in Australia and the drivers, Brad and I get to meet many of them through the Biante Collectors Nights. The #8 Biante car is going to look sensational on track and I’ll definitely be adding one of these BJR Biante Model cars to my collection.”
With the livery designed in house at Biante, stay tuned for an official call for orders for the Biante Brad Jones Racing Commodore; along with the rest of the teams they are producing models for from the 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship Season in the coming weeks.
