Per­cat the top pace­set­ter

NT News - - SPORT -

BRAD Jones Rac­ing’s Nick Per­cat is hop­ing to repli­cate team­mate Tim Slade’s suc­cess from last year at Win­ton af­ter emerg­ing as the sur­prise pace­set­ter on a rain-marred open­ing day of Su­per­cars prac­tice.

In slip­pery and, at times, soak­ing con­di­tions at the coun­try Vic­to­rian track, the Holden driver rock­eted to the top of the stand­ings af­ter a late fly­ing lap in the sec­ond prac­tice ses­sion.

Per­cat pro­duced the day’s fastest time, more than a sec­ond ahead of DJR Team Penske star Scott McLaugh­lin, Ere­bus driver David Reynolds and Fabian Coulthard.
