The form man of the last eight years in the V8 Supercars Championship, reigning champion Jamie Whincup has amazingly not finished out of the top two in the championship in that period.

Demon fast in karting, Whincup moved to Formula Ford in 2000 and was crowned Australian champion in 2002.

Spotted by Garry Rogers, he made his V8 Supercar debut at the Queensland 500 in 2002 before graduating to a fulltime position with the team a year later.

2003 proved to be difficult and Whincup found himself dumped come the end of the season, only able to scrape together an endurance seat in 2004.

Given a lifeline by Tasman Motorsport in 2005, Whincup responded in style, partnering the late Jason Richards to podium results at Sandown and Bathurst which paved the way to joining Triple Eight Race Engineering for 2006.

Winning in style on debut in Adelaide, Whincup would win Bathurst in partnership with Craig Lowndes.

He returned in 2007 to challenge for the title, winning four rounds on his way to becoming runner-up to Garth Tander by a mere two points.

In 2008 he would finish the job, winning six rounds, and backed it up in 2009, winning 11 races and sealing back-to-back titles.

After falling short in 2010, the Triple Eight ace struck back with force in 2011, making him just the second man after Norm Beechey to have won the championship in both a Ford and a Holden.

He then backed that up with 12 more race wins in 2012 to seal his fourth title. His record-equaling fifth championship win in 2013 cemented his place in the history books as he overcame a testing year in the all-new Car of the Future.

Last season though was one of the champion’s toughest as he overcome a mid-season slump with a new engineer to claim a record-breaking sixth title win at Phillip Island with one event to spare.

Lee Holdsworth is entering his tenth year in the V8 Supercars Championship, and is looking to return to the front of the pack after a few lean years.

His move to Charlie Schwerkolt’s operation has landed him in a plum drive at Walkinshaw Racing, piloting the #18 Commodore VF.

Holdworth's career began when he was seven, racing karts before progressing into a highly successful car racing career.

Holdsworth entered the V8 Supercar Development Series in 2004, catching the eye of V8 Supercars team owner, Garry Rogers, who signed Holdsworth for the endurance races in 2005.

A five-year career with GRM would follow. By mid-2006 Holdsworth had gained his first podium result, and in 2007 he qualified in the top-10 seven times, gaining 11 top-10 finishes. This was topped off with his first V8 Supercars race win at Oran Park.

In 2009 and 2010, Holdsworth was one of the fastest drivers in the field, scoring his second race win in 2010 on the streets of Homebush.

A further year with GRM in 2011 garnered three more podiums, before Lee was signed to join Stone Brother’s Racing for the 2012 season, who morphed into Erebus Motorsport V8 in 2013.

Holdsworth continued his strong career with the new team, achieving the team’s highest championship result, plus highest race finish and qualifying results through a tough development year.

In 2014, he became the first driver to win a V8 Supercars race for Erebus Motorsport and Mercedes-Benz AMG at Winton Raceway.

He joins Walkinshaw Racing for the 2015 season, and beyond.

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.

Coulthard started his career in karts before moving into Formula Ford in NZ. A trip to the Australian Grand Prix support races at Albert Park in 2002 proved his worth, he then jetted to England to compete in Formula Renault.

Coulthard joined the Porsche Carrera Cup, finishing third and best rookie in 2004, then was crowned champ in 2005.

He signed to drive with Paul Morris Motorsports, sharing a car with Alan Gurr and Steve Ellery in 2006/2007.

In 2008 linked with countryman Paul Cruickshank and an ex-Craig Lowndes BF Falcon and finished in the top 10 on six separate occasions.

In 2009 he returned with PCR and a brand new Triple Eight-built FG Falcon taking the car to his first-ever podium finish at Symmons Plains before moving across to Walkinshaw Racing in 2010 for two seasons, then joining BJR in 2012.

2013 proved to be a breakthrough year for Coulthard – two pole positions and twelve podium finishes. His sixth place finish in the drivers championship was a career best.

Coulthard continued his momentum in 2014 scoring 24 top ten finishes, three pole positions and six podiums.

2015 will see trucking giant Freightliner Trucks take over naming rights sponsorship.

Having stepped up from the Dunlop Series as the reigning Champion, McLaughlin made his debut in the 2013 V8 Supercar Championship. He made an impact immediately, qualifying in the ARMOR ALL Top 10 Shootout for his first official full-time race at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide. 

McLaughlin went onto to take two Championship races wins and finished the 2013 season 10th in the Championship, earning him the the Mike Kable Young Gun Award, recognising rookie of the year. 

In 2014 McLaughlin had the opportunity to develop and race a new car, with Valvoline Racing GRM making the switch from Holden to Volvo and debuting the Volvo Polestar S60s at the first round in Adelaide. 

It proved to be a very successful year for GRM, Volvo Polestar Racing and Scott, winning 5 races, making 10 podiums and claiming 10 ‘Pole’ positions ending the year 5th in the Championship Standings and being awarded the coveted Barry Sheene Medal. 

Scott and Volvo have now proved that the Volvo will be a championship threat in 2015.

TEKNO Autosports’ Shane Van Gisbergen will be keen to build on the momentum that saw him finish last season as championship runner-up.

The talented New Zealander had his best season to-date in 2014, with eight wins (three at the non-championship Australian Grand Prix), and three pole positions – marking him out as a future champion with standout performances all year.

Van Gisbergen burst onto the V8 Supercars scene with Team Kiwi Racing in the middle of 2007. During a torrentially wet weekend of racing at Oran Park, Van Gisbergen finished 13th in one of the races and set the third-fastest lap in another.

Stone Brothers Racing became Van Gisbergen’s home from 2008 through to the end of 2012. In the early stages of his career, he demonstrated brilliant car control – especially in the wet weather.

As the New Zealander matured, his performances on-track became far more consistent – and he teetered on the brink of victory for a few seasons. Van Gisbergen broke through for his maiden win in the rain on New Zealand’s Hamilton Street circuit in 2011.

While Van Gisbergen scored more top-10 results in 2012, he was ready for new pastures in 2013 and switched to the TEKNO Autosports Holden outfit.

The change in scenery reinvigorated Van Gisbergen’s enthusiasm and he won on debut with his new team at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, and took Commodore’s historic 400th all-time race win in the final race of the year at the Sydney 500.

In a stellar breakout season for Mostert, 2014 saw the young driver crowned King of The Mountain in a thrilling last lap victory at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. 

The young gun proved his pace early last season with a victory in Perth, and a string of strong performances led to a competitive end to to the year, finishing seventh after a tight fight for fifth in the Championship.

A star in karts, Mostert dominated the field in the 2010 Australian Formula Ford Championship, winning an incredible 10 of the last 12 races in the series.

In 2011 he made his Dunlop Series debut in a Ford with Miles Racing before being snapped up by Prodrive Racing (Australia) after a stellar wet weather drive at Queensland Raceway, claiming a podium and pole position on debut.

In 2012 he competed in the Dunlop Series full-time with PRA, winning two rounds and finishing third in the series behind Scott McLaughlin and Scott Pye. If it had not been for penalty points, he would have been crowned champion.

He began 2013 driving an ex-Mark Winterbottom Falcon for MW Motorsport in the Dunlop Series and won the opening round at Adelaide before receiving a call-up through his PRA links to step up and take over the #12 Falcon at Dick Johnson Racing in the V8 Supercars Championship, where he reaped instant success, taking out a victory in Race 24 at Ipswitch.

2015 provides new opportunities for the 2010 Australian Formula Ford Champion, who is looking to perform more consistently across all events.

Davison heads into his second season with Erebus Motorsport looking to raise the bar after making some encouraging progress during his debut year with the team.

Davison ticked plenty of boxes during a breakthrough year for Erebus in 2014, recording his first podium finish and pole position for the team as well as scoring a fourth place finish at Bathurst with his brother and co-driver Alex Davison.

Having been a regular V8 Supercars Championship contender throughout his career, the former Bathurst winner will be hoping to steer his young team to even better results in 2015.

The 2015 Championship will mark Davison’s 12th year in V8 Supercars and 10th season overall as a full-time driver as he approaches his milestone 300th race in the category.

Among Davison’s career highlights include a win in the 2009 Bathurst 1000 as well as coming close to winning the V8 Supercars Drivers Championship in 2009 (2nd) and 2013 (3rd).

Davison also boasts Formula One experience on his extensive motor racing resume having previously tested for Minardi at Misano, Italy in 2004, following in the footsteps of his late grandfather Lex Davison, who was a four-time Australian Grand Prix winner.

A year of highs and lows for Mark Winterbottom saw the 2013 Bathurst champion finish in the top three of the championship standings in 2014.

In a high flying start to the year Frosty compiled four wins in New Zealand, Darwin and Winton, collecting 12 podium finishes overall and the Jason Richards Trophy while in New Zealand.

The feisty driving style he adopted in 2013 reappeared towards the end of the season where he claimed two podium finishes at Phillip Island. 

2015 sees Frosty enter his tenth season with Prodrive Racing with his sights firmly set on a maiden championship win.

Frosty is one of the most consistent drivers in the field and has finished in the top five in the championship every year since joining Prodrive Racing.

He gained Ford support in 2001 when he made the jump from karts to single-seater racing in the Victorian Formula Ford series.

After finishing runner-up in the national series two years later he made the move to V8 Supercars where in a Falcon he claimed the Development Series title at his first attempt. 

After finishing runner-up in the national series two years later he made the move to V8 Supercars where in a Falcon he claimed the Development Series title at his first attempt. 

A move to the main game the following year saw him impress and despite being in modest surroundings he did enough to attract the attention of Ford’s factory team.

He switched to PRA for 2006 where he stunned on debut to finish third overall against very experienced opposition and has been a frontrunner ever since.

Rookie Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 winner Nick Percat joins Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport for his second full-time V8 Supercars season in 2015.

Signing with Walkinshaw Racing in 2007, Percat competed in Formula Ford, winning the national title in 2009 and breaking Steven Richards’ record for most race wins.

He then progressed to the V8 Supercars Development Series in 2010 and finished fourth in the standings, earning him an endurance drive alongside Garth Tander in 2011. 

The duo claimed victory at the Bathurst 1000, Percat becoming the first rookie winner in 30 years. He remained part of HRT’s endurance lineup while he continued to race full-time in the Dunlop Series until the end of 2012.

In 2013, Percat stepped into the Porsche Carrera Cup and placed second, stacking up a record amount of pole positions and fastest laps. He then substituted for the injured James Courtney in the HRT Commodore at the season-ending Sydney 500 before receiving the full-time call-up in 2014.

Percat’s debut season recorded a 2nd at Eastern Creek and 3rd at the iconic Bathurst 1000.  He rounded out the year 12th in the Championship, enlisting him as the highest placed rookie.
