Nick Percat added “It’s always exciting to reveal the new livery before each event. The yellow on this is really bright and bold, it definitely won’t be missed on track.”

“The Dunlop team that work with us at the track constantly engage with drivers and teams to ensure we’re getting the most of the tyres. At the end of the day our Dunlop tyres are what is in between us and the road, so performance and reliability is key. When you’ve got good tyres, it gives you confidence to push the car harder and make more passes. That’s what the fans love to see.”

Macauley Jones will get behind the wheel of the Dunlop Super Dealer Commodore first, for the co-driver for Friday’s co-driver session, before Nick Percat takes over for the remainder of the weekend.
