- Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport
Former racer Lucas Dumbrell remains the youngest team owner in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship as he enters his seventh year at the helm of Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport.
At the tender age of 19, Dumbrell made history and established the team after an accident in a Formula Ford at Oran Park in late 2008 left him a quadriplegic and stripped him of his life long dream of competing in V8 Supercars as a driver.
Dumbrell, who had raced in Aussie Racing Cars and Formula Ford, didn’t lose his passion for motorsport and purchased a Racing Entitlements Contract from the now-defunct Sprint Gas Racing and arranged an alliance with Walkinshaw Racing, who provided a car, engines and technical support for LDM’s first two seasons.
With the likes of Daniel Gaunt, Cameron McConville, Mark Noske, Nathan Pretty, Warren Luff, Scott Pye, Dean Fiore, Russell Ingall and Tim Blanchard - all of who have been given the opportunity to steer for the Holden based team.
This year see’s LDM continue with it’s two car line up in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship with pilots Nick Percat and Andre Heimgartner.
