13 February 2023

Walkinshaw Andretti United has pulled the covers off the Mobil 1 NTI Racing #2 Ford Mustang that Nick Percat will drive in the 2023 Supercars Championship.

The release of the car marks a milestone in the team’s history, its first Mustang following a long association with Holden and General Motors.

Percat will get his first laps behind the wheel of the Mustang on Wednesday February 15 at Winton Motor Raceway.

“The Mobil 1 NTI Racing Mustang looks incredible; the white base is really clean and the car itself looks so tough,” said Percat.

“The team have put in some crazy hours and made a lot of sacrifices to get it to this point, so I can’t thank them enough, we’ve seen Gen3 take shape pretty rapidly at the workshop to be able to get behind the wheel now is exciting.

“A huge thank you to all our partners, existing and new, that have made this possible, the continuity is incredible, and I’m really proud to represent them all in the new era. To be a part of Mobil 1’s 30th year with the team is unbelievable, and the support from NTI I’ve had has been amazing.

“Really looking forward to getting our heads around these new cars as quickly as possible and seeing what we can do.”

Team principal Bruce Stewart added: “We’ve all been working towards these cars for so long now that to see it in the flesh, looking so good, is a bit surreal to be honest. Our Team has been incredible with their dedication and commitment in getting here.

“We wouldn’t be in this position without the support of all our partners. 2023 is Mobil 1’s 30th year with our team which is just incredible, NTI have been a huge supporter of our team, but everywhere you look on these cars there are fantastic partners like Morris in their 13th with us now, who are intrinsically linked in the business and VALO who joined us mid last year and have done wonderful things for our sport.

“The fact we’ve had nearly every single partner recommit to us is the loyalty we love, and everyone in this business appreciated their support, as well as the new partners who have come on board who we are excited to work with.

“It’s getting very real now, I can’t wait to see the Mobil 1 NTI Racing Ford Mustang GT on track Wednesday, and to get the season underway.”
