Nick Percat has extended his driving agreement with the Brad Jones Racing team for another two years. The team is excited to confirm that this will see Nick driving with the Albury squad until at least the end of 2020.
“I am really excited to have extended my contract with Brad Jones Racing. The goal with Brad, Kim and the whole team was to fight for race wins and eventually a championship.”
“My first year with BJR was character building for the whole team and I, and the way BJR continued to push and get on with the job was seriously impressive. This team is a big family, everyone has each other’s back and we all have the same goal.”
The Bathurst winner joined the BJR team at the start of 2017, in what would be described as a very challenging and character building season. Fast forward to 2018, 4 rounds into the season and Nick has already produced two podium results and sits 12th in the championship.
“When Brad and Kim told me they wanted to extend my contract I couldn’t have been happier. BJR is where I want to be and where I think I’ll get my best result. I know the results we have had so far this year are just the beginning, the whole team is working extremely hard to give me a winning package.”
“I can’t wait to score my first race win with BJR and continue to improve the car, this will be the longest period of continuity I’ve had in my supercar career. I believe that continuity is what wins races and lets you fight for championships.”
Team Boss Brad Jones added “Nick’s commitment and pace for us is unquestionable, so we’re really happy to have that stability and consistency going forward with both Nick in Car 8 and Tim Slade in the Freightliner/Alliance Truck Parts Commodore.”
“I feel like Nick has grown with us in his time here already and he fits into the team really well; I can’t wait to see what we can achieve as a group over the next three years.”
Nick will be in Coregas Racing colours again when the team head to Barbagallo next week for the Perth SuperSprint event.
