The Advertiser 7 sports star of the year
Hey Guys,
My friend Nick has been nominated for this year's Advertiser Sports Star of the Year.  He is a really great kid and is the current Australian Formula Ford Champion.
He is very deserving of this accolade so if you have a spare 30 seconds, please click on the following link and vote for finalist number 4.
By voting you have the chance to win $500 cash... And lets face it, at this time of year... I wouldn't say no ;)
Thanks so much
Tenille :)

Quote from: The Advertiser
The  21-year-old's move from Adelaide to Melbourne, to be closer to his Formula Ford team, Sonic Motorway Services, paid big dividends with the Flagstaff Hill youth winning the 2009 Australian Championship.

Nick won 12 races this year bringing his national total to 22 wins, breaking a 15-year-old record and giving him more wins than Mark Webber, the Brabham brothers, Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup.

Lowndes, Whincup and Garth Tander were past Formula Ford Champions.

Percat Prepares For Clipsal

Round 1 of the 2010 Fujitsu Development Series is almost upon us, and with preparations nearing completion for Nick Percat and his teamfor 2010, JAY Motorsport, they headed to Winton Victoria for the season opening test day.

Conditions for the test day were fantastic, with clear blue skies,and temperatures in the mid to high 20's...however the track had seen a large amount of rain the night before making it slightly changeable as the rubber went down.

With Percat having his first official test for the 2010 season in car number 222, showing his factory links with the Walkinshaw Racing factory and the Holden Racing Team.

"It was great to be back in a race car, as it seems a long time since I won the Formula Ford championship in 2009 already!"

"I ran through a full program of running on very used tyres,and the car performed faultlessly out of the box after its major rebuild in the off season, so full credit to Keith Rennie and the boys for doing such a good job" said Nick.

"As has been the case for a while now, I have been really working on my fitness and it showed today with my consistency and speed over a race distance. The feedback from the team was rather positive with my lap times right in the ballpark too"

"I'm looking forward to racing on my home town track in Adelaide, as I have been pretty fast in all the other categories I have been there in, so I will be doing my best to start the season well at the Clipsal500!" added Percat.

Nick Percat is still chasing sponsors for the 2010 season,and currently has openings for any interested parties for the Clipsal 500 and future events.

Help support one of South Australia's and Australia's future stars of motor racing....
