Perth SuperNight – Friday Race Wrap

Four Holdens filled the top-10 for the opening race of the Pirtek Perth SuperNight event at Barbagallo Raceway in Western Australia.

Jamie Whincup picked up the best result for the roaring lion with the #88 Red Bull Holden Commodore finishing in fourth.

Teammate Shane van Gisbergen came home behind Whincup in fifth with the pair scrapping it out in a tight fought battle over the final laps of the 120km race.

Nick Percat got off to a flying start after a strong qualifying performance earlier in the day and was able to secure a seventh place result.

Running the striking new Holden Guaranteed Value livery for the event, Percat’s result was an impressive one as the third quickest Holden in Perth.

“It was good today, we got a really good start and result and it’s a credit to everyone out here and everyone at Supercars this is a really good what they’ve done to put this night race together,” said Percat.

Rounding out the top-10 was the Penrite Racing Holden Commodore of David Reynolds.

Tomorrow’s race will see 33 additional laps added which is sure to spice up the racing with additional pit stops and varying strategies to play a big part in proceedings.

Catch all the action live on Fox Sports and the Ten Network with Race 12 kicking off at 8.45pm AEST.
