Bendix takes naming rights of Nick Percat's MSR entry
Percat will race #10 Bendix Chevrolet for entire 2024 season
MSR will reveal new-look cars on Friday February 9
Australian automotive and brakes brand like Bendix has partnered with Matt Stone Racing as the new naming rights partner on Nick Percat’s Chevrolet Camaro.
MSR recruit Percat, who arrived from Walkinshaw Andretti United, will carry Bendix backing for the full 2024 Supercars Championship.
The Yatala-based team previously carried Truck Assist naming rights across both its entries, with the brand now backing WAU rookie Ryan Wood.
For MSR, the Bendix sponsorship helps usher in a new era with Percat, who arrives with over 300 race starts to his name alongside Cameron Hill.
Bendix is no stranger to Supercars, given its involvement with the category via its trade partners. It’s the first time Bendix has taken naming rights of a car in Supercars, with the full livery to be unveiled on Friday February 9.
“It’s great to have such an iconic Australian automotive brand like Bendix partnered with Matt Stone Racing and Supercars this year,” team owner Stone said.
“There is a lot of continuity with Bendix and many of our other partners that are involved in the automotive space. It really bolsters the strength of the MSR family of partners as we head into a big season.
“The Bendix Racing Team Supercar that Nick will race looks great in the renderings, and I can’t wait for fans to see it in a few weeks’ time."
George Kyriakopoulos, FMP Group Australia Bendix CEO, added: "Bendix is looking forward to racing in the Supercars category in 2024.
“As the pre-eminent motorsport category and one of Australia’s most watched sports, Supercars is a natural fit for us. We are as passionate about cars as our customers, and quite frankly we are ready to race!
“Bendix is Australia’s leading braking brand with an extensive range of braking components including brake pads, rotors and accessories. Whether it’s Bendix GCT™ for passenger vehicles or Ultimate™ 4WD to suit four-wheel-drive vehicles, Bendix has you covered.
“For those with a more sporting intent, Bendix also offers Ultimate+™ Brakes and Rotors as well as Street Road Track™ Pads – we understand that vehicles come in all shapes and sizes: passenger cars, EVs, SUVs and 4WDs.
“All products are extensively tested, so drivers can Brake With Confidence, and now with MSR, Bendix can Race With Confidence.”
Percat will test with MSR in full for the first time on Monday February 5, with the 2011 Bathurst winner lapping Hill’s car at a rookie day on Wednesday.
