Supercars veteran Cameron McConville returns to the category as a solo driver with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport after initially retiring in 2009.
While he was a regular enduro driver from 2010-2012 and subbed at Brad Jones Racing and LDM on occasion during that time, McConville had a four-year absence from driving in the category that included a stint as driving standards observer for CAMS.
McConville re-joined LDM for the 2016 Pirtek Enduro Cup and alongside Nick Percat led the team to an impressive third place at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
The veteran will now drive car #3 alongside rookie team-mate Alex Rullo as he takes on a mentoring role to the youngster.
Among his career highlights, McConville is remembered for his last-lap dive on Rick Kelly at Winton in 2004 for Garry Rogers Motorsport.
Starting in karts, McConville progressed through Formula Vee to Formula Ford, before being noticed by Dick Johnson and getting the chance to race in a Ford Sierra in the 1992 1000.
After years racing numerous categories, McConville’s first full-time Supercars opportunity came in 2000 with Rod Nash Racing, after finishing second at Bathurst with Craig Lowndes in 1999.
He skipped between teams before landing at GRM in 2004.
After a stint at PWR from 2006-2007, McConville raced for Brad Jones Racing, but following hit and miss results and a big accident at Phillip Island in 2009, he decided to retire and tackle Supercars only as a co-driver.
