Nick Percat’s Brad Jones Racing Holden Commodore Supercar will carry primary sponsorship from Biante Model Cars at the Tasmanian SuperSprint held at Symmons Plains on April 7-9.

“Biante Model Cars have fantastic relationships with many teams up and down pit lane in the Supercars Championship with our model program,” said William Hall, General Manager of Biante Model Cars.

“Our ties with Brad, Kim and the team at BJR have always been very strong so it’s thrilling to have this opportunity to have a full livery at a championship round.”

After an unfortunate accident at the Australian Grand Prix, Percat is looking for a change of fortune in Tasmania.

“We had some bad luck at the AGP with the brake failure but the team have done an outstanding job getting the car back into shape and the Biante livery looks awesome, would make a pretty good model I reckon,” enthused Percat.

Team Owner Kim Jones is very pleased to welcome Biante as the naming rights sponsor for Tasmania, adding to the 20 year association between the model car manufacturer and the team.

“We’ve had an association with Biante for over 20 years and it’s fantastic that they are taking up this opportunity to be the naming rights sponsor at Tasmania,” said Jones.

“There is a strong model car collectors group in Australia and the drivers, Brad and I get to meet many of them through the Biante Collectors Nights. The #8 Biante car is going to look sensational on track and I’ll definitely be adding one of these BJR Biante Model cars to my collection.”
