News // MELBOURNE 400 PREVIEW
+

Last year was the first time in history that the Supercars raced for points at the Albert Park circuit, and for Nick Percat it was a standout weekend with 4 top ten finishes; notably standing on the podium twice during the event, with a 2nd and 3rd place finish.

Nick will be racing in Freightliner Racing colours this weekend, and after a strong showing for the season opener in Adelaide, he is looking forward to continuing that momentum in front of the massive Melbourne crowd. With the Supercars supporting the opening round of the Formula One championship this weekend, Albert Park is the place to be!
