DUNLOP SUPER DEALER RACING

The Dunlop Super Dealer Racing Supercar will return to the grid for the Beaurepaires Melbourne 400 this weekend with Nick Percat set to run the iconic yellow and black colours for the first time this year. 

The famous Dunlop colours have featured on the #8 Brad Jones Racing Commodore at several Supercar events over the years and it has quickly become a fan favourite.

It’s also a monumental round for Nick as he heads into his 200th championship race on Saturday at Albert Park. 

The Melbourne 400 is an event that everyone looks forward to with plenty of on-track action for all the family as the Supercars share the stage with formula one for their season opener. A long track where anything can happen with high speeds and high tyre degradation, you don’t want to miss this! 

Stay tuned to the Brad Jones Racing Facebook and Instagram pages across the event for the latest updates. Broadcast of the race will be LIVE on FOX Sports and Channel Ten across the weekend. Your local TV times and coverage information can be found here - https://www.supercars.com/tv-schedule/
