WAU’s parting gifts for Percat, De Borre

THE final day of the season marks a raft of farewells in the Repco Supercars Championship paddock.

Walkinshaw Andretti United has begun its Sunday at the VAILO Adelaide 500 with presentations to two of its key departures; driver Nick Percat and engineer Adam De Borre.

Percat is leaving WAU after a difficult two-year tenure in its famous #2 entry, bound for a career reset at Matt Stone Racing.

V8 Sleuth’s coverage of the VAILO Adelaide 500 is proudly presented by Bad Boy Mowersexplore the world of Bad Boy Mowers with the new Spring/Summer catalogue of high-performance mowers here.

A much-anticipated return to the Walkinshaw family that had raised him into a Bathurst 1000 winner in 2011 has mysteriously failed to fire.

But that’s not been due to a lack of effort from the driver, who will today race with a bonnet signed by each of the WAU crew members.

The bonnet will be gifted to Percat as a memento after the weekend.

Also out of WAU is Chaz Mostert’s long-time engineer Adam De Borre, who has opted to step back from the grind of Supercars Championship duties in 2024.

De Borre and Mostert have a special relationship, having worked together for all bar one of the driver’s full-time Supercars seasons across three different teams.

WAU presented De Borre with a framed photo this morning, while Mostert will give his race helmet to his engineer and friend after the season finale.
