The Melbournian is looking forward to lining up with Percat in the car #8 Holden Commodore, “I’m thrilled to be joining BJR as co-driver to Nick. It’s a very exciting time. I have to say a huge thanks to Brad and Kim for the chance to be a part of their organisation. They’re a team with so much history in not only Supercars but in Australian Motorsport.
“I feel that the experience of competing in my first Supercars enduro campaign, as well as making my Wildcard debut at Tailem Bend last year, will put me in good stead for the upcoming season of endurance. To finish third overall in the Pirtek Enduro Cup and grab my first Supercars podium at the Sandown 500 last year was something I will never forget, and I have to thank everyone at Tickford Racing and Lee Holdsworth for giving me the chance to showcase my skills on the main stage.
I’m very focused on getting behind the wheel of the BJR #8 Holden Commodore and delighted to be teaming up with Nick. I’ve known Nick for many years and are sure we are equally as hungry to get the results the team deserves,” said Randle.
Nick Percat is confident coming into the new season and is looking forward to a strong endurance campaign. Nick is eager to work with his new team-mate.
“I’m really excited to have Thomas alongside me for the enduro cup. He is fast and a proven race winner in Super2. An extremely motivated young driver who showed last year he can do a good job. He will be a great asset to the whole team.”
The PIRTEK Enduro Cup kicks off at Tailem Bend followed by the renowned Bathurst 1000 and the Gold Coast 600 to wrap up. The powerful pair will be working closely leading up to September when they will be ready to fight for the Cup.
