Percat won the 2009 Australian Formula Ford Championship in his third season in the category having dominated the season after finishing runner up the previous year to Paul Laskaseski. In 2011 he returned to single seaters for a one off support race for the 2011 Indian Grand Prix driving a Van Diemen built Formula MRF for a winner takes all $50,000 prize. He took pole position and won race one but was taken out in race two by eventual winner Jordan King.
On 9 October 2011, he partnered Garth Tander to win the Bathurst 1000 race for the Holden Racing Team. In winning the Bathurst 1000, Percat became the first South Australian born driver to win the race.
On 24 December 2014, it was announced that Percat would contest the 2015 season with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport. He endured a mediocre season, with a best finish of 6th at the Gold Coast 600. He finished 22nd in the championship despite not racing in the final two rounds of the year due to a foot injury.
The 2016 season kicked off with Percat taking a shock win in unpredictable circumstances at the 2016 Clipsal 500 Adelaide, which was also the first win for the team. Percat became the first South Australian driver to win the local event.
Percat placed second in the 2013 Australian Carrera Cup Championship
