After supporting Brad Jones Racing at this year’s Adelaide 500 event, X-Convenience and Mobil will feature on the #8 Supercar of Nick Percat for the inaugural Tailem Bend Supercar event in less than 3 weeks’ time.
X-Convenience, fueled by Mobil, has 18 service stations in South Australia and continue to grow.
The X-Convenience team said: “Brad Jones Racing has teamed up with X-Convenience, to be a part of this iconic event in Tailem Bend. X-Convenience, in conjunction with Mobil, wanted to get behind the local events by supporting one of their own – Nick Percat. We believe this inaugural event, will be a great boost for the local economy and South Australia.”
“Nick Percat has shown tremendous skill and speed throughout this season. We’re proud to partner with Nick and the highly regarded Brad Jones Racing team. X-Convenience are a family owned and operated company that strive for success, just like BJR,” the X-Convenience team added.
Brad Jones said: “I’ve raced in the Mobil colors before, when I was Peter Brock’s team-mate in 1989. Mobil is such a highly-regarded brand and has a long association with motorsport. X-Convenience and Mobil supported us for the Adelaide 500 event and this is a great extension of our valued relationship.”
Nick Percat “We’ve had the Mobil X-Convenience Supercar in the pipeline for some time, so it is fantastic to finally show a preview of my Supercar with the X-Convenience branding and iconic Mobil colors. I know fans will get a kick out of seeing this car on track, and considering the history of the brands, it is very cool for me too.”
“I’ve visited The Bend Motorsport Park a couple of times now for the official launch and various media appearances; there is no doubt it is going to be a fantastic event with some very close, exciting racing. Everyone is really looking forward to it!”
“South Australians love their motorsport and many people will be travelling across from all over to watch us at this inaugural Supercars event. Hopefully they get to drop by one of the 18 X-Convenience locations whilst they’re in the state!” Percat added.
The X-Convenience Mobil Racing Supercar is set to be on track at Winton Motor Raceway next Tuesday for the team’s second test day of the season, before making its way across to South Australia for the first ever Supercars event at The Bend Motorsport Park.
