Percat smashes lap record on single-seater return

The Supercars ace accepted a last-minute offer to race a Formula 1000 car for Arise Racing at Barbagallo Raceway on Saturday, his first competitive hit-out in a single-seater since he raced in Formula MRF at the Indian GP in 2011.

However the Bathurst 1000 winner wasted little time getting back into the open-wheeler groove, grabbing a pole and all three race wins.

He also set a new lap record by six tenths of a second with a 53.079s, which would have put him second on the grid for both Supercars races at the circuit earlier this year.
