Two-time V8 Supercars Dunlop Series Champion Paul Dumbrell does not have his car adorned with the #1 in 2016, having finished runner-up to new Champion Cameron Waters last year.

This year, he steers Car 88 for Eggleston Motorsport in the Supercars Dunlop Series in what is his fifth assault of the category and third consecutive season with the Croydon-based squad.

Despite making his first V8 Supercars appearance in 1999 at the tender age of 16, Dumbrell first competed in the Dunlop Series in 2001, finishing runner-up on debut.

He earned his first Dunlop Series 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 finally broke through for his first race win at Sandown en route to his best-ever Championship finish.

The following year he retired from the V8 Supercars Championship, to partner six-time Supercars Champion Jamie Whincup for the PIRTEK Enduro Cup.

The pair remains a solid combination, again teaming up for the three biggest events in the main game.
