The winner of what is now known as the Dunlop Super2 Series in 2000 and '05, Dean Canto has been a Supercars regular for the best part of two decades.

He has been a co-driver at Tickford Racing since 2008, joining the team following two full-time seasons at Garry Rogers Motorsport.

Canto has now co-driven the Ford squad's Bottle-O entry since 2010, with Paul Dumbrell, David Reynolds and most-recently Mark Winterbottom.

With Reynolds, Canto finished second at Bathurst in 2012 and took a Supercars victory at the Gold Coast two years later.

This PIRTEK Enduro Cup is Canto's third alongside 2015 Supercars champion Winterbottom, the pair finishing sixth in their first trip to Mount Panorama but failing to finish the last two years.

Canto was the winner of the maiden Super2 Series in 2000, then known as V8 Lites, in a privately-run EL Falcon.

Between main game stints with Briggs Motorsport/Triple Eight and GRM, he became its first two-time winner five years later, with Dick Johnson Racing.

When he is not racing Supercars, Canto runs a performance driving school as well as undertaking driver coaching and TV and film work.
