Two-time V8 Supercars Dunlop Series Champion Paul Dumbrell mounts a title defence campaign this season after clinching his second crown in 2014.

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 in the series 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.

There followed an up and down four-year relationship, which culminated in Dumbrell's best season yet in 2006, where he took the Jack Daniel's #11 Commodore to a finish right on the verge of the top 10 in the Championship.

In 2007 he left to join Supercheap Auto/PWR Racing, before moving into the HSV Dealer Team for 2008 under the Autobarn Racing banner.

After celebrating his 100th V8 Supercars start in 2009, Dumbrell made the switch to Ford in 2010, finally breaking through for his first race win at Sandown en route to his best-ever Championship finish.

Retiring from the V8 Supercars Championship in 2011, Dumbrell has partnered five-time Champion Jamie Whincup for the PIRTEK Enduro Cup since 2012, and will again co-pilot the #1 Commodore in 2015.

Walsh receives his first taste of full-time V8 Supercars action with Erebus in 2015 having been a proven performer in the category's breeding ground, the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series, as well as a V8 Supercar co-driver in recent years.   

Walsh has earned the right to test himself against the best after finishing as runner-up in the Dunlop Series Drivers Championship in 2013 before backing that up with a third place finish overall in 2014.    

Ipswich-born Walsh commenced his career in Formula Ford, where he set a national record for winning nine consecutive races on route to finishing runner-up in 2007.       

A stint in Europe followed where Walsh raced competitively in British Formula Ford for Australian Team, Borland, and in the Western European Championship Formula Renault 2.0 for HiTech Junior alongside the likes of current Formula One star Daniel Ricciardo.

His performances saw him recruited as a rookie test driver for A1 Team Australia where he matched it with other rookie drivers before the series concluded.       

Walsh returned to Australia and after a brief period away from racing, returned to Australian Formula Ford before a successful foray into the Dunlop Series, firstly with Miles Racing before joining Matt Stone Racing.

The younger brother of V8 Supercars regular Drew Russell, teenager Aaren Russell made the big step up to the Dunlop Series in 2010.

Having impressed as a teenager in Formula Vee racing in New South Wales – taking home second in the Championship in 2009 – he helped expand Novocastrian Motorsport to a two-car Dunlop Series operation in 2010. He impressed on debut, finishing his first series campaign in a V8 Supercar inside the top 10.

2011 saw Russell make some ground in the series, becoming a regular runner in the midpart of the field despite running equipment much older than many of his rivals.

Now Russell lines up for his fifth straight season in the Dunlop Series after his most successful season to date in 2014, recording two round podiums at Queensland Raceway and Sydney Olympic Park.

In 2015, he’s armed with a newer car, stepping into the Dick Johnson Racing/Triple Eight Race Engineering FG Falcon driven by Steven Johnson in 2012.

Russell and his brother will pair up in a wild card entry and make their debut in the Supecheap Auto Bathurst 1000 amongst the Championship cars. The Holden Commodore they will steer has been prepared by Garry Rogers Motorsport.

Prodrive Racing Australia’s Cameron Waters is eager to continue the momentum that saw him finish runner-up in the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series in 2014.

The Mildura-native kicked off his racing career in go-karts, collecting multiple national and state championships before graduating to Formual Vee in 2009.

The following year he moved on to the Australian Formula Ford Championship, finishing sixth in the championship standings while being awarded the Rookie of the Year title.

That same year Waters debuted in the Dunlop Series at Sandown with Kelly Racing after becoming the inaugural winner of the Shannons Supercar Showdown TV series. The show awarded Waters with a drive in the Bathurst 1000 alongside Grant Denyer, which saw Waters become the youngest ever driver to compete in the legendary race.

While the pair failed to finish the race after Waters crashed at Forrests Elbow, he returned to the mountain the following year to drive with Jesse Dixon – winner of the 2012 Shannons Supercar Showdown. Waters and Dixon were the youngest driver combination to ever compete in the race, finishing in 20th position.

Alongside his Bathurst 1000 duties in 2012, Waters also won the Australian Formula Ford Championship and competed in the Dunlop Series with Dreamtime Racing, before the squad withdrew from the category.

He returned to the Dunlop Series with Minda Motorsport in 2013 – finishing tenth in the series – before making the successful move to Prodrive Racing Australia in 2014.

In 2015, Waters and his Prodrive Racing Australia squad are vying for the title, while the 20-year-old will partner with reigning Bathurst champ Chaz Mostert in the PIRTEK Enduro Cup.

After a successful 2014, Taz Douglas makes his way back to the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series full-time this year with THR Developments.

Having scored numerous karting titles in his junior years – including the Ford Kart Stars Series – Douglas took time out from motor racing in 2003 and 2004 to pursue his other passion, surfing. He returned to motorsport the following year, making his Formula Ford debut in the Victorian Championship, finishing fourth.

In 2006, Douglas won the title and caught the eye of V8 Supercar squad HSV Dealer Team, working with the squad and testing its Commodore in the second half of the season. But at the start of 2010, Douglas was diagnosed with Burkitts Lymphoma and sidelined from racing.

He endured several months of intense chemotherapy but bounced back in 2011 to race the in the Dunlop Series full-time. 2012 saw Douglas complete at stint in the V8 Supercars Championship with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport before he was recruited to co-drive with James Moffat in the PIRTEK Enduro Cup in 2013.

He continued to race in the Dunlop Series sparingly to maintain his race fitness for the enduros, which paid off in 2014 when he finsihed second alongisde James Moffat at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

2015 will mark his third-consecutive year co-driving the Nissan Altima for the enduros with his childhood friend Moffat.

A five-time Commodore Cup national series champion (2002-2005, 2007), Geoff Emery is lining up for his sixth full season in the Dunlop Series.

He initially moved into the series in 2006 as team-mate to Nathan Pretty at Smiths Trucks Racing, but found things difficult and results hard to come by.

Emery made a one-off appearance in the series finale at Phillip Island in 2007 and teamed up with Tony Bates to form TAG Motorsport for 2008 driving a pair of ex-HRT Commodores.

In 2010 he switched to running his car from the Greg Murphy Racing workshop and eventually moved into a newer model VE Commodore, the same car he will drive again this season.

Built new in 2008, it was driven by Greg Murphy for that season and throughout 2009, including when Murphy and Mark Skaife drove it to fourth place at Bathurst.

In 2010 it was driven by Daniel Jilesen at Winton and Emery at Townsville before Emery was joined by Marcus Zukanovic in the car for the Phillip Island and Bathurst V8 SupercarsChampionship endurance races.

After a string of strong results in karts over five years, Heimgartner made the step up to the New Zealand Formula Vee Championship at just 12 years old – followed by seasons in Formula Ford and the Carrera Cup.

The young kiwi had always had his sights set on competing in the V8 Supercars Championship, and competing at home in the V8SuperTourer Series was quickly followed by a drive in the V8 Sueprcars Dunlop Development Series in Australia.

It was during this time he caught the eye of those at Super Black Racing, who brought Heimgartner on board for the 2014 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 to steer the team's wild card entry.  

His impressive performance at Bathurst convinced Super Black Racing to sign him for a full season in the V8 Supercars Championship, for what will be both the team and Heimgartner's maiden year in the category.

In 2015, Jones again contests the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series, as well as pairing with Jason Bright in the Team BOC Brad Jones Racing Commodore for the PIRTEK Enduro Cup.

The nephew of team owner Brad and son of fellow owner Kim, 'Jones Junior' first appeared in Formula Ford and quickly proved a dab hand, making his V8 Supercar debut in the Dunlop Series at Winton in 2002 and then in the main series in the same season at Bathurst.

After two more years in the category which saw him take out the title in 2004, Jones scored his first big break into the main game with Garry Rogers Motorsport in 2005, but a tough season saw team boss Rogers replace Jones after Bathurst – ironically after the young gun had finished a season-best fourth in partnership with Cameron McConville.

He joined Tasman Motorsport for 2006 for what would prove to be another tough year, before heading home to Albury for 2007 and re-joining Team BOC.

He again drove for the team in 2008 before moving into an endurance driver role, one that he has filled ever since. When he’s not racing, Jones works at the BJR workshop, heading up the team’s Dunlop Series program with a driver-line up including cousin Macauley and Adelaide native Josh Kean.

After a string of strong results in 2014, Shepparton-native Garry Jacobson is keen to build on last year’s momentum in 2015.

A national and state karting champion, Jacobson entered the tin-top racing scene in 2009, competing in the Aussie Racing Cars national championship.

He finished the season eighth in the standings before deciding to move to open wheelers, entering the Victorian Formula Ford Championship in 2010.

After finishing second in his first year in the series, Jacobson graduated to the national championship, contesting the category over 2011 and 2012. A best series finish of third in 2012 saw Jacobson revert to having a roof over his head the following year, stepping up to the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series with Sonic Motor Racing.

Closing his maiden assault of the category in 17th, Jacobson shifted to Eggleston Motorsport the 2014 season, recording his best race, round and qualifying results in the series to finish on the fringes of the top 10 in 11th.

Former V8 Ute Series Champion Chris Pither returns to the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series in 2015 off the back of his best ever championship result of fourth last year.

The Sydney-based Kiwi first cut his teeth in Formula First and Formula Ford in his native New Zealand, before competing in HQ Holdens and the Toyota Racing Series. He came to the attention of Aussie racing fans in the V8 Ute Series before moving into the Dunlop Series in a Kanga Loaders Falcon, finishing 11th in the series on debut in 2006.

Later that year, the New Zealander made his V8 Supercars Championship debut with Team Kiwi in Bahrain, before a part-season in the Dunlop Series in 2007 and his Bathurst 1000 debut as co-driver to Fabian Coulthard and Team Sirromet Wines.

2008 saw Pither make four V8 Supercar Championship round starts for Team Kiwi, before moving back into V8 Utes, taking out the championship in 2011 with the Ice Break Racing team.

He returned to V8 Supercars for the first time in five years in 2013, joining David Wall for the enduros as well as contesting the Dunlop Series. From there, Pither was announced as co-driver for Dale Wood, continuing on in the third BJR car for the PIRTEK Enduro Cup in 2014.

His 2014 Dunlop Series campaign was his most successful to date, taking out his first race and round win at Townsville while finishing runner-up to Paul Dumbrell in the first ever Dunlop Series mini-enduro at Bathurst.

This year, Pither continues in the Dunlop Series in his familiar Ice Break Racing colours, but joins MW Motorsport for his 2015 assault. He again pairs with Wall for the enduros, this time in a Garry Rogers Motorsport Volvo.

Accomplished kiwi driver Ant Pedersen lines up for his second full season in the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series in 2015. 

While the flying kiwi first debuted in the category in 2010, he only completed three rounds in the series with MW Motorsport. 

But he proved his worth during his short appearance, finishing third overall on debut at Clipsal while scoring a second place race result at Queensland Raceway. 

That same year, Pedersen competed in the V8 Supercars Championship as a Wild Card entry at Phillip Island and Bathurst, before joining the NZ V8 SuperTourer Championship grid in 2012.  

Finishing runner-up in the series in 2013, Pedersen returned to the Dunlop Series the following year, joining the Eggleston Motorsport squad for his first full-time assault of the category. 

His miles in the Dunlop Series were complemented by his Wild Card appearance at Bathurst with Super Black Racing – the kiwi squad’s inaugural V8 Supercar appearance – where he finished 11th alongside Andre Heimgartner. 

In 2015, Pedersen co-drives with Heimgartner again during the PIRTEK Enduro Cup, in what is Super Black Racing’s maiden year in the category.

Sydneysider Brett Hobson returns to the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series in 2015 - his first full season in the category in six years. 

While debuting nine years ago at Queensland Raceway in an ex-Steve Ellery Falcon, Hobson has only completed three rounds of the Dunlop Series over the past two years. 

He finished ninth in the 2005 Australian Formula Ford Championship and was then granted his debut run in the Dunlop Series in 2006, before he linked with Sydney Star Racing in their ex Garry Rogers Motorsport Commodore for 2007. 

A brilliant result at Wakefield Park in '07 was a highlight but things didn't translate into further results in 2008. Hobson was just one of the many drivers involved in a massive accident at Wakefield Park, a crash which forced him into an older car for the next round at Sandown and then to miss the next two rounds at Queensland Raceway and Winton.

In 2015, Hobson tackles the Dunlop Series in an ex-Garry Rogers Motorsport chassis last campaigned by Michael Caruso in 2011. However, a huge incident at Clipsal’s Senna Chicane this year has seen the Commodore undergo a massive rebuild to return to the track for the rest of this season.

South Australian Todd Hazelwood will enter his second V8 Supercars Dunlop Series Championship campaign in 2015 with Matt Stone Racing in a Stone Brothers Racing built Ford FG Falcon.

Since 2003, the young gun has successfully progressed through the motorsport ranks, winning numerous championships and titles in both dirt and sprint karting, placing on the podium numerous times in Formula Ford, which spring boarded the teenager's open-wheel career into Formula 3, where Hazelwood prevailed to be the most consistent driver in the 2013 series.

The young racer was also a part of Australia’s successful youth program known as the Fujitsu 'Cool Driver' program, from the start of 2011 to the end of 2013.

In 2013, there was an opportunity for Hazelwood to be a contestant in the third season of the ‘Shannons Supercar Showdown’. He won the show, which gave Hazelwood the chance to be associated with Ford Performance Racing as a test driver in 2014.

Debuting in the Dunlop Series in 2014, the teenager closed his maiden campaign in eighth – the highest placed rookie of the year. He also won the prestigious V8 Supercars Mike Kable Young Gun Award, awarded to the best first year V8 Supercar driver, encompassing both the Dunlop Series and V8 Supercars Championship.

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.

James Golding enters the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series having established himself as a naturally-gifted star of the future.

An accomplished karter, Golding has an Australian National Championship and two Victorian State Championships to his name, while the Victorian-teen represented Australia at the World Rotax Grand Finals in 2012, where he was ranked seventh in the world.

After his enormous success in karts, the humble teen graduated to the Victorian Formula Ford Championship, winning the first race of the season on debut in 2013. Despite missing one round and racking up the most race wins, Golding closed his maiden assault of the Championship in fourth place before stepping up to the Australian Formula Ford series the following year.

The competition was rife in the Australian Formula Ford Championship and Golding was narrowly trumped for the title to finish third after the young gun finished inside the top four at every round of the series.

As an apprentice mechanic at Garry Rogers Motorsport, his talent soon caught the eye of his boss Garry, who gave him the chance to contest the final round of the 2014 Dunlop Series at Homebush with the squad. He impressed on debut – so much so that the Volvo squad granted him a drive in the Dunlop Series in 2015.

Golding joins the likes of Jamie Whincup, Garth Tander and Scott McLaughlin as the newest GRM prodigy, and hopes to follow in their footsteps and race in the V8 Supercars Championship.

Growing up in one of Australia’s most successful motorsport dynasties has obviously influenced Macauley Jones, who has already proved himself a chip off the old block.

The son of multiple Australian motorsport Champion Brad Jones has already racked up a few titles himself, including 2011 South Australian Rotax Light Champion, three state junior karting titles as well as standing on the podium for three third place finishes at the Australia National Championships as a junior. He has also participated at international karting events in Asia and America.

Those successes led to a drive in the Australian Formula Ford Championship in 2012, qualifying on the front row of the grid on his third appearance. By the end of his debut year, Jones was standing on the podium with Rookie of the Year in the bag and fifth overall in the championship. 

In 2013, Macauley looked to take out the Australian Formula Ford Championship, but a difficult end to the Championship dropped him to a fourth place finish. 

To start his 2014 campaign, Macauley competed in the Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand, before stepping up to the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series at the Townsville round in 2014, scoring a 10th place finish on debut. 

Jones is contesting his first full year of the Dunlop Series with the support of PAYCE, and debuts in the V8 Supercars Championship as co-driver for Dale Wood in the GB Galvanizing Commodore.

A former regular in GT Production and two-litre Super Touring racing, Aaron McGill is the ‘marathon man’ of the V8 Supercar Dunlop Series.

Having broke Mark Howard’s record of most round starts in the series, McGill first appeared on the V8 Supercars landscape in 2000 at Bathurst, sharing the second Big Kev Commodore with Owen Kelly. However, the car was an early retirement and McGill missed out on driving.

Since then, he’s been a constant in the Dunlop Series. Having debuted in the category in 2001 with RPM, McGill took some time away before returning in 2004 with Howard Racing but joined Verdnick Racing a year later. But in 2006, McGill formed his own team in ‘McGill Motorsport’ which has continued to support the series since.

Kean became involved in the Saloon Car Series in 2012 driving a VT Commodore under the Team Kean Racing banner. 

It was soon evident that he had found his niche, with Kean finishing third at the first round at Mallala. He then went on to successfully complete four State rounds and six Shannon National Series rounds, finishing second overall in his first National Championship.

In 2013, Kean stepped in to the Kumho V8 Touring Car Series and competed in the first three rounds of the year running with THR Developments in an ex-Team Dynamik Commodore. While this experience was invaluable, the prospect during the year to make a debut in the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series after purchasing a VE II Commodore from Walkinshaw Racing/HRT was an opportunity too good to give up.

He ran under the THR banner for Winton’s August 2013 round and for Bathurst 2013 driving the VE II Commodore, before moving to Tim Kean Racing for the 2014 season. 

In 2015, Kean tackles the Dunlop Series as part of the Brad Jones Racing stable, with support from Alphabet Financial Services.

Dan Day has been competing in motorsport events since he was 12 years old.

His passion for motorsport – coupled with mechanical experience and understanding – has seen him do well in every category he has contested, including Motorkhana, Gymkhana, Autocross, Hill-Climb, Circuit Sprint, Time-Attack, Sports Sedan Racing, Tarmac Rally, Gravel Rally and most recently, V8 Touring Cars.

After closing his debut V8 Supercars Dunlop Series campaign in 20th last year, Day returns to the category in 2015 with the support of sponsors Streetfighter and Dreamland.

Day credits his coach/mentor Steve Glenney – who has won national championships rallying and circuit racing – as a huge influence on his development as a driver, both in and out of the car.
