Brad Jones Racing has unveiled the latest in a series of rolling sponsors for Nick Percat’s #8 Holden ahead of the Watpac Townsville 400.

Percat’s entry has attracted backing from McHitch Uniglide Trailer coupling for the event, where the 28-year-old will be looking to build on his Hidden Valley podium.

The BJR Holdens enjoyed their most competitive outing of the season to date in the Top End, with Percat third on the Saturday and team-mate Tim Slade fourth on Sunday.

“It’s great to have a family, regional based business like McHitch supporting a family team like Brad Jones Racing,” said Percat ahead of Townsville.

“Many of our supporters have trailers, caravans and even race trailers, and they want hassle free, safe towing, so to showcase the McHitch brand to our fans is pretty cool.


“After our podium finish in Darwin, I’m very much looking forward to getting on track in Townsville.

“The team have had podium finishes there before and with our increasing momentum I feel like we are in a good position to continue scoring some strong results.”

McHitch will also back Richard Mork’s V8 Ute Racing Series entry in Townsville, where the category will hold its second points paying round of 2017.

The McHitch product was invented by former historic touring car racer Joe McGinnes.

“It's ironic that a racing car hobby towing an XW GT competing in the Biante Historic Touring Cars supports led to the development of the now successful McHitch system,” he said.

“We look forward to being trackside at Townsville to support Nick and the team at BJR. We’re excited to see the #8 McHitch Commodore on track this weekend.”
