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.

Scott Pye enters his second full season in the V8 Supercars Championship after moving from the LDM team he ran with in 2013.

Pye was 2012’s Mike Kable Young Gun Award winner for the best first-year driver in V8 Supercars (when he contested the Dunlop Series), clinching a breakthrough round win in the final event at Sydney Olympic Park and finishing runner-up to Scott McLaughlin in the overall pointscore.

Pye came up through the ranks of karting and Formula Ford, finishing third in the 2009 Australian Formula Ford Championship behind Nick Percat and Mitch Evans before heading overseas to race.

He claimed the 2010 British Formula Ford Championship with 14 race wins and stepped up to the cut-throat British Formula 3 Championship a year later. He finished 10th overall in the points with a race win at Rockingham the major highlight, joining the likes of Mark Webber and Will Davison as Australian drivers to score a race win in the category that produced drivers the ilk of Ayrton Senna, Mika Hakkinen and David Coulthard.

The backing of Roland Dane and Triple Eight Race Engineering helped Pye with his overseas racing program and he returned in 2012 to Australia to drive the Monster Commodore in the Dunlop Series for the team. A superb rookie season saw Scott finish second overall picking up two race wins and a host of podiums.

Pye also made his V8 Supercars Championship debut in Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport’s Triple Eight-built Commodore at Sandown teaming with Taz Douglas.

A full season with LDM in 2013 did not bring the results Pye was hoping for and a number of unlucky big accidents did not help his title aspirations. A fine recovery at Bathurst with a superb sixth place, teamed with Paul Morris, showed just what potential Pye had and shook off some of the disappointments from earlier in the year.

In 2014, Scott moves to the re-energised Dick Johnson Racing. The team has strong support from Wilson Security and Pye now has the chance to establish himself as one of the real young stars of the V8 Supercars Championship.

2010 V8 Supercars Champion James Courtney returns for his fifth year with the Holden Racing Team, and is set to build on the momentum of 2014.

Courtney’s list of achievements before joining V8 Supercars is impressive, with two world karting championships, British and European Formula Ford titles, and an F1 testing role with Jaguar Racing.

His versatility caught the attention of the Holden Racing Team, which signed him as an endurance driver alongside veteran Jim Richards in 2005.

He secured a full-time drive with Stone Brothers Racing the following year, when he finished on the podium at Bathurst and secured the Mike Kable Rookie of the Year award with his 11th place championship result.

Courtney took his maiden victory with SBR at Queensland Raceway in 2008, but the following year moved to Dick Johnson Racing – where he won the championship in 2010. He was also awarded V8 Supercar’s best and fairest, the Barry Sheene Medal.

In 2011, Courtney returned to Holden’s factory team as the reigning champion, and won in Abu Dhabi. 

Courtney made the best of 2012 with two podiums in Sydney and a top-10 finish in the rankings, before returning to the front the following year in the new generation VF Commodore.

However, Courtney’s year in 2013 was marred by his accident at Phillip Island that ruled him out of the final round. He returned to racing last year in stunning style, winning the Clipsal 500 – and in Ipswich as well.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The 2015 season provides a year of opportunities for David Reynolds after a positive end to 2014.

A podium finish at Sydney Olympic Park and front-of-field performances at the Gold Coast and Phillip Island put the momentum well and truly in the likeable larrikin's hands.

As he enters his fourth season with Prodrive Racing, consistency will be key for Reynolds, after a lacklustre 2014 season.

Reynolds won multiple Australian titles on his way to earning a seat in the V8 Supercars Championship, including the national Formula Ford Championship in 2004 and the 2007 Porsche Carrera Cup crown.

He made his V8 Supercars debut in the same year as an endurance driver at Sandown and Bathurst, before driving in the Dunlop Series the following year.

Fourth place in the development category led to a full-time drive in V8 Supercars in 2009 and while he was the highest-placed rookie that year, there was no full-time drive for 2010, necessitating a move back into enduro driver mode.

He moved back to the main series for 2011 and a number of attention-grabbing performances led to team owner Rod Nash securing his services.

Renowned as a bit of a joker, Reynolds is also one of the fittest drivers on the grid and a keen cyclist.
