Drivers delivered to new homes after Adelaide 500

THERE were a number of special deliveries in the Supercars paddock in the wake of the season-ending VAILO Adelaide 500.

The long-held tradition of crews taking drivers swapping seats the following season to their new homes early was alive and well.

Among those to get in on the action was Walkinshaw Andretti United; Chaz Mostert wheeling Nick Percat down to Matt Stone Racing on a tyre trolley.

There was extra room for awkwardness in that exchange as Percat had bumped MSR star Jack Le Brocq into the fence in the early stages of the race.

MSR, though, was also into the post-race shenanigans, with its crew carrying Jack Le Brocq down to Erebus, where he will replace Will Brown.

Other hijinks included Grove Racing dispatching David Reynolds to Team 18 in a Penrite oil drum.

Reynolds signed off from Groves with a third-place finish on Sunday, his fourth consecutive podium to end the season.

The paddock antics capped a weekend of farewells that included WAU’s pre-race presentations for Percat and departing engineer Adam De Borre.

“A big thank you to everyone at WAU, all the partners, and of course the Walkinshaw family for my time here,” said Percat.
 
“It’s been great fun, and while we didn’t quite get the results we wanted, it’s been a pleasure.

“Good luck going forward, I look forward to banging doors with the guys next year on track.”
