Nick Percat joins Matt Stone Racing

Nick Percat will make the move from Walkinshaw Andretti United to Matt Stone Racing after signing a multi-year deal with the Queensland-based squad.

A race winner with the Holden Racing Team, Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport and Brad Jones Racing, Percat will join Cameron Hill at the team to replace Erebus-bound Jack Le Brocq.

“We are thrilled to have Nick joining the team on a multi-year deal,” said Team Owner Matt Stone.

“When we were looking for a driver to fill our available seat for 2024, we were looking for someone with proven race-winning experience.

“It’s exciting to sign a driver that has not only achieved race wins multiple times, but also won Bathurst and had such strong consistent championship results in his time at BJR. The Bathurst 1000 is a clear goal on the top of MSR’s list. After our maiden race win earlier this year in Darwin, having someone like Nick in the team next year, is another big step up for the team.

“I look forward to the results that we can unlock with Nick, and together with team-mate Cameron Hill will be a strong combination over the next two seasons.”

Percat won the Bathurst 1000 on debut and has forged a decade-long career in Supercars achieving his most consistent success when leading Brad Jones Racing’s fortunes from 2017-2021.

“I’m really excited to be joining MSR for the 2024 and 2025 Supercars seasons,” Percat enthused.

“It’s definitely something that I’m really looking forward to; I really like the way Matt runs his team and the family feel and culture he’s got going on there. It only took a few minutes to realise I was keen to join the team when I met with him at the workshop and saw the team for myself. It’s really positive and I can’t wait, but also for me personally, it’s cool to be back aligned with the GM family.

“Obviously it’s a big part of my family’s history and my love of road cars started thanks to Holden, so it’s very cool to be driving back under that banner.

“The results that MSR has achieved with the new Gen3 car have been super impressive. I can definitely see why and how they are so strong now that I’ve got to know Matt and a few guys a bit better.

“I’m looking forward to continuing that, and the team itself is in a really good position to kick some goals over the next few years. Hopefully I’m a big part of that and can help with a bit of experience and we can keep pushing towards the front. Matt’s assembled a great group of guys and girls there that can get the job done.

“I can’t wait to be a part of a new team and drive a new car for the upcoming seasons.”

This seat was believed to be the last in play as the Blachard Racing Team is expected to confirm James Courtney and rookie Aaron Love for 2024.
