For a driver who won the Bathurst 1000 on his first attempt, the path back to the Walkinshaw fold for Nick Percat wasn't straightforward.

First signed by Walkinshaw Racing in 2007, Percat won the Australian Formula Ford Championship two years later, breaking Steven Richards’ record for most race wins in the process.

He progressed to the Dunlop Super2 Series in 2010 and finished fourth, earning an endurance drive call-up alongside Garth Tander for the then Holden Racing Team.

The duo proceeded to take out the 2011 Great Race, Percat becoming the first rookie winner in 30 years.

He continued biding his time in Super2, contending for the 2012 championship before trying his hand at Carrera Cup, stacking up a record number of poles and fastest laps en route to runner-up honours.

Percat finally got his chance to graduate from the Walkinshaw co-driving ranks to a full-time seat in 2014.

With two podiums and 12th overall to show for a stellar first campaign, Percat was suddenly left without a 2015 drive when Racing Entitlements Contract holder James Rosenberg elected to sell up.

A lifeline arrived through minnows Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport for the next two seasons.

While some times were tough – Percat missed the final two rounds of 2015 due to a blood infection – he was able to give team boss and friend Lucas Dumbrell his first ever Supercars race win in Adelaide and a podium at Bathurst in ’16.

His break would finally arrive when Brad Jones Racing called him up to succeed Jason Bright in its #8 Holden, although the first year of the partnership disappointed.

Percat was often BJR’s top-ranked driver and headed into his first year with Walkinshaw Andretti United as one of the most experienced drivers on the grid.

2022 didn't go to plan, but Percat capped a tough year with a stunning drive from 20th to second in Adelaide.

In 2023, he will race a Ford for the first time in Supercars. Can Percat return to the winners' circle?
