BJR Supercar driver Nick Percat has had the most consistent season of his career in 2020.
Percat sits sixth in this year's championship and, but for few unlucky incidents, could be as high as third.
The stats say it all, with 19 top 10 finishes from 30 races including a pole position and two race wins with Percat on top of his game leading into the season finale at Bathurst this weekend.
Percat has won the race before and had numerous finishes at the pointy end of the field.
"I think it great for us that we have been able to come back to Albury to rebuild the cars and for us all to have time home before we head to Bathurst," Percat said.
"Its been a huge effort by everyone to do what we have done this year, and while we have had some great success it has been taxing, so this is a great lead up for us to be properly prepared because it's such a big week up there.
"But having said that, the Melbourne teams are really good at prepping their cars on the road, they have trucks shipping everything they need up to them, but it's the personal stuff like being able to see your family and friends that makes the biggest difference."
Percat has tried to maintain his normal routines despite the disruption of Covid, and believes it has helped him cope and be in good shape for the 1000km race on the weekend.
"I haven't changed my usual training schedule. Even though we have only been doing short races this year, I kept to my normal training so I'm in good shape for the endurance race," he said.
"I'm really looking forward to it, I love the refuelling, the strategy, driver changes and all the drama that comes with this type of racing, so I can't wait."
Percat is teaming up with Thomas Randal, who is leading the 2020 Super 2 Championship and raced at the Mountain last year as co-driver for veteran Supercar driver Lee Holdsworth, finishing a credible seventh and being one the top five fastest co-drivers in the event.
I'm always quietly confident going to BathurstNick Percat
"Thomas has good form at Bathurst and he's going really strongly in Super 2 this year, which just confirms his status as great person to have as a co-driver," he said.
"It's good that he'll be racing in the Super 2 event up there this year to get some solid track time under his belt.
"He knows the race and how it works, especially after doing with a big team like Tickford last year, so its super exciting for me, I've never been to Bathurst where I won't have to worry too much about what my co-driver is doing."
Percat doesn't lack any self-belief heading to another Bathurst 1000, relishing the opportunity to have another crack at one of the best races in the world.
"I'm always quietly confident going to Bathurst, it's a place that clicks with me and hopefully this year we've got a race winning car," he said.
"It's been two or three tenths faster at every track we've been to this year, so hopefully it's the same up there this week and we'll be in a position to have a genuine crack at winning it."
