Percat's Challenging Day In Darwin

Coates Hire Racing’s Nick Percat endured a challenging day at Darwin’s Hidden Valley Raceway in races 17 and 18 of the 2014 V8 Supercars Championship.

Starting 24th in Race 17, Percat was involved in a spirited battle with Robert Dahlgren (Volvo) and Dale Wood (Falcon) early on. Percat broke clear by mid race, only to have Wood and Dahlgren catch and pass the HHA Racing Commodore right near the end of the 35-lap encounter that saw Percat eventually cross the line 23rd.

After getting the jump on the field from pole position, it was reigning V8 Supercars champion Jamie Whinchup who greeted the chequered flag first, chalking up his maiden win in Darwin. Second went to his Red Bull teammate Craig Lowndes, (celebrating his 40th birthday) followed by Shane van Gisbergen who grabbed the final podium position.

Rounding out the top six were Scott McLaughlin (Volvo) in fourth from Garth Tander (Holden) and current championship leader Mark Winterbottom rounding out the top six.

In race 18 Percat started 20th and drove a solid race to finish in 19th after 35 laps.

The Red Bull duo of Whincup and Lowndes dominated the second race and finished in the same order as the previous encounter earlier in the day. Third on this occasion Fabian Coulthard (Holden), followed by Garth Tander (Holden), McLaughlin and Winterbottom rounding out the top six.

Nick Percat: "It sure was a tough day for us, but we will re group overnight and come out firing for tomorrow's qualifying and longer race".
