Nick Percat and Macauley Jones are gearing up for the biggest event of the year, and are thrilled to have Boost Mobile partner them for the famous Bathurst 1000 event at Mount Panorama. In another one-off livery for BJR’s Car 8 Commodore, a striking silver and metallic orange look has been unveiled for the great race this weekend.
Boost Mobile are renowned for their pre-paid mobile plans through the 4G Telstra Mobile network, offering fantastic data, call and text deals to suit any budget. With no-contracts, they keep it simple for people on the move and who enjoy an action-packed lifestyle.
Boost Mobile back up their #neverstopplaying mantra even further by being involved in some of the best sporting events in Australia, from surfing and snowboarding, motocross and for us, our biggest event of the year – Bathurst!
Percat, who won the great race in 2011, and was the first rookie since Jacky Ickx in 1977 to do so, is building quite the Bathurst record; his tally now sits with 3 podiums and 4 top 4 finishes in 6 starts.
Co-Driver Macauley Jones, who turns 23 on race day, is lining up for his 3rd Bathurst campaign. On his debut year, Macauley finished 15th with Dale Wood and 10th last year with Tim Blanchard in the teams #21 Commodore.
Nick Percat “Boost Mobile are already a familiar face in the world of Supercars. With Bathurst being the biggest event of the year it’s the perfect opportunity for Boost Mobile to showcase their brand even further with the fast-paced Supercars audience. Plus, we’ve got support again from some familiar names you’ve seen on Car #8 this year, including Clipsal, which is fantastic.”
“It’s an exciting time for the team at Boost Mobile because you’ll see JC (James Courtney) in his Boost Mobile livery, and ours! Even though we’re competing against each other, I know we both want to be on top of the podium.”
“Our fans are always eager to see what we come up with next, and I think everyone will be pretty excited to see this metallic Boost Mobile Commodore on track. Another show-stopping addition to the Car 8 liveries of 2017!”
“Bathurst is every drivers’ favorite track. Anyone that knows Brad Jones and this team, knows that a Bathurst win would mean absolutely everything. Everyone there works incredibly hard, and after the tough year they have had, it would be fantastic to get the Boost Mobile Commodore on the podium and spray some champagne.”
General Manager of Boost Australia Jason Haynes added “Boost Mobile is excited to be supporting Brad Jones Racing for this years’ Bathurst 1000 being the pinnacle of Australian Motorsport. Brad and our Founder Peter Adderton go way back to when Peter was a partner in the Audi race team, so it will be great to reunite at the Mountain this year."
"Boost Mobile is proud to support drivers Nick Percat and Macauley Jones for Bathurst and we welcome Macauley to our ambassador program for the remainder of the 2017 season. We wish both Nick and Macauley the best of luck for the great race."
"While it’s a little unorthodox having 2 different teams with 2 different cars we felt it provided the opportunity to extend our reach and the awareness of Boost Mobile to enable us to engage more with motorsport fans. Like BJR, we believe we have a great product, great coverage, great network and plenty of data which in racing terms may align with elbows out, fast speed and more horsepower!"
