Two-time Dunlop Super2 Series winner Paul Dumbrell will race on in the second-tier category this season, keeping his skills sharp for his PIRTEK Enduro Cup duties alongside Jamie Whincup.
Despite making his first Supercars appearance in 1999 at the tender age of 16, Dumbrell first competed in Super2 in 2001, finishing runner-up on debut.
He earned his first title the following year before being signed to replace Russell Ingall with Larry Perkins’ Holden Commodore squad in 2003.
In 2007 he left to join Supercheap Auto/PWR Racing, before moving into the HSV Dealer Team for 2008 under the Autobarn Racing banner.
In 2010 Dumbrell made the switch to Ford and broke through for his first race win at Sandown en-route to his best-ever Championship finish.
The following year he retired from full-time Supercars racing, partnering champ Whincup for the enduros for the first time.
He and Whincup won the prestigious Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 that first year, and took home the Pirtek Enduro Cup in 2014.
