South Australia’s own winner of the Superloop Adelaide 500 will sport a bold livery at this year’s event, with National Pharmacies upping its support of Nick Percat for the opening round of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
Percat, the winner of the 2016 race, will debut the livery at testing this week.
He, along with teammate Tim Slade, is looking for a solid start to build on some solid performances in last year’s championship.
“It’s fantastic to have the support of South Australian renowned brand National Pharmacies on board for the Superloop Adelaide 500,” Percat said.
“South Aussies love their motorsport and Adelaide really comes alive at this time of year, the event seems to take over the town. It’s easy to see why plenty of people continue to travel from far and wide to get to this one; it’s a standout on the Supercars calendar.
“I was a part of the Superloop Adelaide 500 launch back in October, so it’s safe to say we’ve been counting down to this event for some time now.
“At this time of year everyone is always eager to get back behind the wheel and go racing.
“After our results in 2018, I am looking forward to another great year with BJR. We really stepped up and after some consistent results between Tim and I in the ZB Commodore throughout the season, I think it’s time to solidify that even more.”
National Pharmacies support of Percat continues the South Australian company’s support of South Australians. The almost 100-year-old company recently became the naming rights partner of the iconic Adelaide Christmas Pageant (as the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant) which is owned and operated by Events South Australia, the promoter of the Superloop Adelaide 500.
National Pharmacies managing director Tony Wojciechowski said the opportunity to take out full ownership of the No. 8 ZB Commodore was a great opportunity for the brand at its home race.
"National Pharmacies are excited to be partnering with Brad Jones Racing and South Australia's own Nick Percat at this year’s Superloop Adelaide 500,” Mr Wojciechowski said.
"An iconic race in the calendar, the Superloop Adelaide 500 is an exciting family event, which is enjoyed by many of our employees and members. We are Looking forward to seeing the National Pharmacies #8 on the streets later this month.”
The Superloop Adelaide 500 is the first event of the Supercars Championship and takes place from 28 February - 3 March 2019 at the Adelaide Street Circuit. Tickets are available here.
