THE covers have come off the colours that Nick Percat will carry for his return to Walkinshaw Andretti United in 2022.
Percat will drive the squad’s #2 Mobil 1 NTI Racing entry; the latter steps up to co-naming rights partner after two years with the squad through its Truck Assist brand, while the former recently cemented a deal that will see it celebrate its 30th year with the squad next season.
“To see the Mobil 1 NTI Racing car in the flesh, I think it looks absolutely amazing, and it all feels very real now,” Percat said.
“I’ve had some pretty cool history with Mobil 1 last time I was here, so it’s great to be representing them again, and then to have NTI step up as well with the team and show their support in me and the team is really cool.
“It’s fantastic to see such a strong show of support from the entire partner group, the family type atmosphere from the top down is something that was really obvious from the moment I walked back through the doors.
“I can’t wait for that first test day, it’s going to be really important as a team to get to know each other better and start to gel, everything to this point has been great, so I just can’t wait to put the helmet on and roll out there.”
The reveal also confirmed that Supercheap Auto has joined the team as a partner, along with Isuzu Trucks and Anthem Workwear.
Platinum partners Morris, Goodyear Autocare and Amarok W580 have continued their support in 2022, while also returning are Corestaff, Versor, PPG, Appliances Online, Palm Trans, Prixcar Fleet Services, Woodstock Bourbon and Cola, UMS, Thetford, UMS, Amadio Wines, Lloyds Auctions, Raceline, OMP, SP Tools, King Springs, Kangan Institute, NGK, Oakley, Motum Simulation, K&N Filters, Kleentek, Stratasys, and TPF Sports, while the #2 Holden’s black, white and silver livery was brought to life through partners PPG, Signzone and Spicers.
“We are rapt to reveal the Mobil 1 NTI Racing No. 2, we think it’s a seriously good-looking race car.
“It wouldn’t feel right to not have Mobil 1 on the bonnet, and to have NTI join them as a Co-Naming Rights Partner is fantastic, and we can’t thank them enough for their increased support for the 2022 season. Both are amazing companies who we are proud to represent.
“The support of our entire partner group has been incredible, we’ve got a lot of familiar brands on our car who we share great history with, which we are really thankful for, while also welcoming new partners to the fold this year.
“I’m really excited to see what Nick can achieve this season. He’s fitted in seamlessly around here, so it’ll be nice to get on track and get the year underway.”
The new livery will hit the track for the first time at Winton next Tuesday for the Victorian Supercars teams’ pre-season test day.
