Nick Percat was an ace at the Porsche Carrera Cup Pro/Am race at Phillip Island, racing with Shane Smollen. Percat immediately adapted to the Porsche/Michelin package and immediately resumed his V8 Supercars rivalry with Scott McLaughlin.

The pair engaged in huge battle throughout race one, with the pair trading places and never separated by much more than a second or two. Together with Smollen, he would take out race one.

Race two would see him fight with Nick Foster and while the Percat wouldn’t take the win, he would take second and Percat/Smollen duo were awarded the over round win.

It has been a hectic year for Percat, joining the Lucas Dumbrell V8 team and being an integral part in brining that team from a-somewhat amateur outfit to a professional outfit.

This race weekend presented Percat with an opportunity to race relatively pressure-free and also to help others.  Very much the motorsport man, he was watching the Formula Ford races with interest (in fact he was watching one while this interview was happening) as he was a mechanic for a friend that was racing in the series.

Even when they reach the top, some still love the sport and help the next generation!
