Brad Jones Racing will run near-identical liveries on its lead ZB Commodores at the Vodafone Gold Coast 600.

For the Surfers Paradise event, BJR’s Nick Percat/Tim Blanchard entry takes on the Alliance Truck Parts colours usually campaigned by Tim Slade.

Bathurst proved a tough round for BJR, with none of their three-strong fleet finishing on the lead lap, Percat’s 14th acting as the squad’s best result..

That disappointment came despite Slade/Ash Walsh joining Percat/Blanchard in making the ARMOR ALL Top 10 Shootout.

Eighth in the championship, Percat is expecting a return to form at Surfers Paradise this weekend.

“The Gold Coast has been a good hunting ground for me and BJR in previous years,” he said.

“Last year we came away with P6 on Saturday with Macca [Macauley Jones] as my co-driver.

“Street tracks are always great fun, the podium is in our sights and I’d love to add some surfboards to my collection.

“I’ve got a fast race car, so we need to remain focused and get the most out of it.

“It’s awesome to have the continued support of Freightliner / Alliance Truck Parts and be running the same colours as Sladey’s.”

Percat’s #8 car has been backed on a round-by-round sponsorship arrangement this year, having run a Mobil 7-Eleven scheme at Mount Panorama.

Practice for the second leg of the PIRTEK Enduro Cup begins Friday.
