Paul Morris is an Australian Touring Cars veteran.
After initially starting in Formula Ford racing, he made his Bathurst debut in a Toyota Corolla in 1991 and began racing BMWs full-time in 1992 – an association that would continue for the next eight years in Group A and Super Touring.
A two-time Super Touring champion, Morris took his career to America in 1998 racing Indy Lights, before returning home to establish his own Paul Morris Motorsports operation on the Gold Coast.
His team debuted in V8 Supercar racing in 2000, initially with backing from Big Kev cleaning products, before switching to the family Sirromet Wine brand.
A winner at Calder Park in 2001, results had been a little lean for Morris, but found re-newed motivation when both Supercheap Auto and new teammate in Russell Ingall came on board. He retired from full-time V8 Supercar racing at the end of 2008, but has since raced at the 2009 enduros and with a one-off drive at Yas Marina Circuit to replace the absent Greg Murphy.
In 2013, Morris teamed with Scott Pye across the PIRTEK Enduro Cup and helped achieve the rookie's career best finish, sixth at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
But in 2014 after starting last on the grid and not leading a single lap, Morris achieved ultimate success with a surprise victory at the Bathurst 1000 alongside Chaz Mostert in the factory Ford Pepsi Max Crew #6 Falcon.
Since his full-time retirement, the 'Dude' has dabbled in the V8 Supercar Dunlop Series over the past six seasons, acting as a benchmark for developing drivers.
