Driver Profile

The 2024 season marks a new chapter in Nick Percat’s Supercars career, with the experienced South Australian joining the Gold Coast-based Matt Stone Racing squad and piloting a Chevrolet Camaro LZ1. 

In what marks Percat’s 10th season as a full-time Supercars driver, 2024 promises to be a big year for both himself and the team, as a switch in colours and machinery is set to rejuvenate the 35-year-old as he embarks on the next phase of his storied career.

Percat’s professional racing journey started in 2007 running the Australian Formula Ford series, a series in which he would go on to win dominantly two years later, breaking Steven Richards’ record for most race wins in the process.

He progressed to the Dunlop Super2 Series in 2010 and finished fourth, earning an endurance drive call-up alongside Garth Tander for the Holden Racing Team the following year.

In what was a remarkable feat, the duo took out the 2011 Great Race, with Percat becoming the first rookie winner in 30 years.

Whilst continuing his co-driving duties with the Holden Racing Team, Percat went on to contest the Super2 Championship and Carrera Cup in the following years, before making his main-game solo debut in 2014 for Walkinshaw Racing.

In his rookie year, he went on to score two podiums and finished the season in 12th.

2015 saw a switch to Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport for two seasons, where he would record his first solo race win in Adelaide in 2016, along with a podium later that year at the Bathurst 1000.

In 2017, Percat moved over to Brad Jones Racing, his home for the next five seasons, which would yield two more wins, both coming in 2020, whilst finishing seventh in the Drivers Championship in both 2020 and 2021.

In 2022, Percat returned to the Walkinshaw Andretti United squad and teamed up with Chaz Mostert for two seasons, before making the switch to the Matt Stone Racing Team for 2024 as both driver and team look for success in the future.
