Percat and Hill ready for Bathurst 12 Hour

Nick Percat and Cameron Hill will be vying for a class win aboard the Supaglass Racing entry at this weekend’s Repco Bathurst 12 Hour.

The entry will be prepared by Matt Stone Racing but run under the Supaglass Racing banner, after the car’s major sponsor for the event, Supaglass Industries.

The Canberra-based industry leader in glass manufacturing is also the official bonnet partner of the MSR Supercars campaign.

Given the close proximity to Round 1 of Supercars, also at Mount Panorama next weekend, this week’s Bathurst 12 Hour will provide a solid lead-in to the season opener for Percat and Hill.

Team-mates in Supercars this season, they will share the #10 IRC GT entry in the Invitational Class with car owner John Holinger.

While not realistically in contention for outright victory due to the high number of Class A GT3 cars, the Supaglass Racing crew will be gunning for the Class I win.

The car will be engineered by Jack Bellotti, Percat’s main game Race Engineer.

The Supaglass Racing entry is also supported by Holinger Engineering, SS Signs, Enhanced HVAC and UNIT.

Sunday’s Bathurst 12 Hour will be broadcast live on Channel 7, Fox Sports, and Kayo Sports.

Cameron Hill – Driver:

“I’m pumped to get the 2024 racing season properly underway with the Bathurst 12 Hour this weekend. It’s like a bit of a warm-up for the first round of Supercars, but we will also be gunning pretty hard to score a good result for Supaglass Racing. We’re stoked to have them onboard for such an internationally recognised event. Looking forward to working a bit more with my new team-mate Nick and fingers crossed we have a good run.”

Nick Percat – Driver:

“It’s a good way to start the season off with MSR and also working with Jack, my Race Engineer. We’re already speaking the same language, which is good, but a full weekend at the 12 Hour will only help that ahead of Round 1. Looking forward to sharing the car with Cam and John; we worked together for the first time at the test day last month and gelled well. Bathurst is always a wild place so who knows what can happen, but hopefully we have a solid race and get a good result out of it.”
