Percat, who took a shock win on Sunday in Adelaide last year for back marker squad LD Motorsport, will have one-off backing from event sponsor Clipsal at next month’s 500.

The special livery comes as proud South Australian Percat makes his debut for Brad Jones Racing, and celebrates the final year of Clipsal’s 17-year stint as the naming rights sponsor of the Adelaide race.

“I’ve been to every Clipsal event so I have plenty of great memories from throughout the years,” said Percat, who grew up in Adelaide. “I used to come here as a young race fan so to win it last year was just incredible; it doesn’t get much better than that.
“Clipsal have sponsored the event since 2000, and it is pretty cool to have them on my car for this event.

“I’m honoured to be a part of Clipsal’s farewell to the Adelaide 500 sponsorship and considering the longevity of this partnership, I think people will still call the event ‘Clipsal’ for many years to come.

“The home town support is awesome and the locals really love their motorsport. Everyone has a great time at the Clipsal 500 and I can’t wait to get back.”

The Clipsal/Percat reveal is the second new livery to come out of the Brad Jones Racing stable ahead of the 2017 season, with the covers having come off Tim Blanchard’s Commodore last week.
