Nick Percat has locked in his Supercars future, with the star driver extending his deal with Matt Stone Racing to the end of 2027.

Percat, who initially signed a two-year deal with MSR to the end of 2025, has extended with the team for a further two seasons.

The 2011 Bathurst winner has been one of the stories of the season, with Percat sitting fourth in the championship after five rounds.

Percat has captured career-best form with MSR, with the veteran claiming his first Supercars win since 2020 at the Grand Prix in March.

The Melbourne win came in Percat’s sixth race with MSR, which had previously achieved one win in six seasons.

“I’m extremely excited to have extended my contract with Matt and the MSR family,” the 35-year-old said.

“From the moment I met the guys and girls at MSR, I knew it was the team I wanted to be at.

“Throughout the season so far everyone has continued to lift and I can see the momentum building.

“I feel I have found a family that I can grow with and continue to get great results; Matt and the team have all the tools in place for success and I’m proud to be a part of it.

“Having a long term deal with MSR means we can build on our great start, and the relationship with the crew and [Race Engineer] Jack Bellotti will be extremely strong for the years to come.

“It’s very exciting for me to be a part of what we have here at this team and the journey ahead.”

Percat arrived at MSR off the back of two torrid seasons with Walkinshaw Andretti United, with the partnership delivering one podium in 62 races.

Previously, Percat raced for Brad Jones Racing between 2017 and 2021, with the Adelaide-born driver securing career-best championship finishes of seventh with the team in 2020 and 2021.

In his first year with MSR, Percat is on track to blow his previous best out of the water, with Percat recently telling Supercars.com he now expects nothing less than a top five finish this season.

“Nick has been a fantastic addition to the culture at our team,” team owner Stone said.

“The results have been solid and we are looking strong in what is a very tight championship this year both in drivers and team’s points.

“It’s great to have Nick locked in for the next few years at MSR, we are excited for what the future holds together.”

Percat will resume his 2024 campaign at this weekend’s NTI Townsville 500.
