The striking Dunlop Super Dealer Racing Supercar will return to the real-life grid when Supercars resume this weekend for the Sydney Motorsport Park SuperSprint after the COVID break.
The iconic yellow and black colours have featured on the #8 Brad Jones Racing Commodore at a number of Supercar events over the years, including six rounds of the Supercars All Stars Eseries over the past 3 months.
“It was great being able to showcase the Dunlop Tyres ‘virtual’ Supercar throughout the Eseries but I’m so bloody excited to line up on that grid for real this weekend,” said Percat.
“We always get fantastic support from the Dunlop dealers when we roll out the yellow and black livery. The dealers get so excited seeing this car on track as they’re very connected with the brand and the team so I know they and the fans will love seeing this livery for our first round back.”
“It’s going to be a very exciting weekend of racing, especially with the new two-day format. We don’t get much time to tune the cars between sessions so it’ll make it very interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing how it all unfolds and finally putting on that helmet for the first time in what feels like forever! I’m keen to get out there and put on a great show,” Percat stated.
