Nick Percat to Drive the Newly Signwritten #8 Commodore

R&J Batteries has extended our sponsorship of Brad Jones Racing (BJR) for the entire Virgin Australia Supercars Championship 2020 season. We are super excited to join forces with BJR once again by taking the naming rights on Nick Percat’s #8 Holden Commodore.


Our first sponsorship of BJR was at the recent Sydney SuperSprint event which saw Percat winning a race and Todd Hazelwood securing his first podium. It is the success of this initial sponsorship which prompted us to extend the sponsorship for the rest of the season. “It was an easy decision for R&J Batteries to step up the partnership with BJR after such a great event in Sydney,” said Ray Robson, Managing Director of R&J Batteries.

“BJR has a tremendous track record in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. The chance to extend our relationship with Brad, Nick and the team is one we have jumped at. We are proud to be taking on the naming rights for Nick’s #8 car,” said Stuart Hamilton, Chief Executive Officer at R&J Batteries.

R&J Batteries has taken an active interest in motorsports throughout the years. We have been involved with and sponsored at all levels from grassroots and junior levels to the Supercars Championship 2020. “We have the utmost respect for Brad and the team at BJR. We both have roots in regional Australia, but both compete at a national level in our respective businesses. To be involved with BJR and the Virgin Australia Supercars series is a very exciting step in our long history with motorsport,” Hamilton said.


Following such a successful run at the Sydney SuperSprint, Nick Percat is now gearing up to secure another podium. He will be racing at this weekend’s BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown event overthe 8th and 9th of August at the Hidden Valley Raceway in Darwin. In discussing R&J Batteries coming on board his #8 Commodore for the rest of the season, Percat said, “I’m excited to have R&J Batteries on the car. It’s always fun having a new livery each round but to get the backing and support locked away for the remainder of the year feels great, especially during this difficult time.”


Nick Percat had a successful stint in the season thus far with him currently sitting 4th in the championship. We wish Nick all the best for the upcoming Darwin race and all the other events in the season.
