News // IPSWICH SUPERSPRINT PREVIEW

As the Supercars head back to the sunshine state for the second this time month, Nick Percat will be in revamped Hare & Forbes Machinery House colours for the Ipswich SuperSprint event. Fans will recall the #8 Supercar sporting a white Hare & Forbes livery in 2017 at the Phillip Island SuperSprint event.

 

Nick has competed in five rounds at the Queensland circuit, with four top ten finishes to his name. He is looking for his first top five finish at the track, dubbed the ‘paperclip’ because of its unique layout.
