Defending Pirtek Enduro Cup winning co-driver Warren Luff pairs with Holden Racing Team's Garth Tander for the endurance races this time around. 

Luff had a strong run with Craig Lowndes in the #888 car for a second season in 2013, but this year wants to go one step better on the podium at the Wilson Security Sandown 500 and Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 and clinch victory. 

After a brilliant job in the endurance races in 2010 with Jim Beam Racing, Luff scored a call-up to a full-time drive in the V8 Supercars Championship for 2011.

It was his first full-time seat since 2006 and one the former two-time V8 Utes Series champion was keen to make the most of.

A strong driver in one-make categories in his younger years (including two series wins in the Mitsubishi Mirage Cup), Luff really made his mark when he dominated the Ute Series in 2002 and 2003 and since then has been something of a regular around V8 Supercars as either an endurance driver or full-time pilot.

He scored a break with Dick Johnson's team in 2004 but wasn't able to hang onto the seat for another year, instead signing to co-drive with Marcos Ambrose for 2005, the same year that he finished runner-up in the Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series.

He ran bounced back into a full-time drive in 2006 with Britek Motorsport but since then has been working hard on getting back in the door.

When he isn’t co-driving for Lowndes, Luff competes in the Porsche Carrera Cup and works as a stunt driver at Movieworld on the Gold Coast.

Three-time Bathurst 1000 winner and 2007 V8 Supercars Champion Garth Tander starts his 18th consecutive year with Holden in 2015; his sights locked on the front of the field.

Revered by drivers, fans and media alike for his professionalism and ongoing commitment, Tander has been part of the Holden official factory team line-up since 2008 – where he has notched up a staggering 23 championship and six non-championship race wins.

Tander’s time at HRT has seen him claim a Clipsal 500 Adelaide crown, back-to-back Phillip Island 500s, along with multiple successes in Australia’s Great Race, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 – including the iconic team’s 200th all-time race win alongside rookie Nick Percat in 2011. 

Tander is fourth on the all-time race winners’ list behind Craig Lowndes, Mark Skaife and Jamie Whincup. His 2014 Townsville victory, leading home teammate James Courtney for a famous back-to-back one-two result, took his career total to 53 championship wins.

As one of the most experienced drivers in the field, Tander’s knowledge of the sport and technical knowledge sees him remain an integral part of HRT’s ongoing VF Commodore development.

The Moffat surname is synonymous with Australian motorsport, but James Moffat is not looking to ride on the coat tails of his famous father, Allan.

In his first two seasons with Nissan Motorsport, Moffat has shown to be a driver with true grit, great passion and a thirst for success.

After four years of successful karting, he moved into circuit racing, competing in the competitive Lotus Trophy in 2004, finishing second in his debut season and claiming ‘rookie of the year’ honours.

In 2005, he progressed to the V8 Ute Racing Series earning himself another rookie title and finishing seventh overall.

Moffat switched to the Australian Formula Ford Championship in 2007, finishing third before stepping up to Porsche Carrera Cup.

In 2009, Moffat advanced to the Development Series, finishing second in the Championship. He was also awarded the coveted Mike Kable Young Gun V8 Supercar Award for the sport’s best new talent.

In 2011, Moffat joined Dick Johnson Racing in the main series and remained with the team for two seasons before switching to Nissan Motorsport. 

His highlight at the team was his maiden race win, scoring victory at Winton in 2013, plus his second place finish alongside Taz Douglas at Bathurst last year.

Queenslander David Russell is back with Rick Kelly for this season's PIRTEK Enduro Cup. 

Though he paired up with Todd last season, Russell joins Rick for the second time, after diriving with him at the long distance races in 2012. 

An experienced racer, Russell last year competed in the RennSport round of the Porsche Carrera Cup at Sydney Motorport Park, and placed second at the Sepang 12 hour in Singapore.

In 2012 he contested the Dunlop Series for the fourth straight season, and with Rick recorded his best result enduro result, 12th at Sandown. 

Originally a gun in speedway and production car racing (in a Proton Satria, of all things), Russell won the 2002 Chance of a Lifetime competition with the prize of a drive in the 2003 Dunlop Series.

Driving an older AU Falcon, Russell still showed speed and was nominated for the Mike Kable Rookie of the Year Award after finishing 12th in the Championship.

Champion of his class in the Australian Production Car Championship two years running, Russell then turned his focus to the Porsche Carrera Cup, where he was a mainstay for the three seasons.

In 2008 he scored his first race win at Adelaide before a late season switch to Fitzgerald Racing reaped further rewards. In the end, Russell finished third in the series and moved to the Dunlop Series in 2009, where he finished third with Howard Racing.

Wood entered V8 Supercars in 2007 when he competed in the Fujitsu DVS V8 Supercar with Greg Murphy Racing. He impressed during his debut season, ultimately earning the Mike Kable Young Gun Award as the best first year driver in the category.

In 2008 Wood had a taste of the V8 Supercars Championship, co-driving for Sprint Gas Racing, and then earned a full-time drive with Kelly Racing in 2009, running the first 10 races solo and co-driving with Jack Perkins at the endurance rounds.

After another endurance season with Kelly Racing he then moved to the co-driver seat at Wilson Security Racing teaming with Tony D’Alberto. The pair finished ninth at the year's Bathurst 1000. 

Wood re-entered the Dunlop Series in 2012 with Greg Murphy Racing, to come home sixth inthe Championship.

The following year was a highlight, with Wood switching Dunlop Series teams to Matthew White Racing and winning the drivers’ championship. He also completed the endurance season as a co-driver with Chaz Mostert in a DJR Falcon, the two a promising combination. 

Wood again stepped up into the V8 Supercars Championship for 2014, though the year was tough for the 2013 Championship. 

His 24th place in the Championship, racing the Brad Jones Racing prepared ADVAM Commodore, was highlighted with a podium finish at Winton and a top 10 qualifying effort and shootout attempt at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. 

Wood is looking for more consistency this season, which will be his second with the team.

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.

Michael Caruso was the leading charge for Nissan Motorsport in 2014, and he is looking to become an overall contender this year.

Caruso finished the 2014 season in 10th overall – the highest placed Nissan driver and the first time a Nissan has finished inside the top 10 in the new era of V8 Supercars racing.

With the Sydney-born driver sporting the factory colours of Nissan Nismo in 2015, Caruso is hoping to be fighting for more than just top 10s.

Caruso started his motorsport career in karting at the age of 11, winning countless titles. He stepped up to Formula Ford and Formula 3 before turning his attention to V8 Supercars racing in 2004. He competed in the Development Series, finishing second in the 2007 title before moving to the main series with Garry Rogers Motorsport.

Caruso collected a number of podiums and a race win before switching to Nissan at the start of the 2013 season.

Tim Slade will again have his best chance of a breakthrough maiden win aboard the Supercheap Auto Racing Commodore in 2015.

The South Australian impressed last year with podiums at Winton, Gold Coast and Sydney – and showed what he’s made of when he diced for the lead with six-time champion Jamie Whincup at the final round.

Slade first made headlines in 2006 when he finished second in the Australian Formula Ford Championship.

Slade progressed to the V8 Development Series in 2007, taking his first round win with his own team in 2008 and claiming the Privateers Cup for the best non-main game affiliated driver.

Slade’s persistence captured the attention of V8 team owner Paul Morris, and he was rewarded with a full-time V8 drive for the Supercheap Auto Racing squad in 2009, scoring top-10 results in the Phillip Island and Bathurst endurance races.

A shift to Stone Brothers Racing in 2010 yielded further improvements, Slade finishing 16th before taking his first podium finish in 2011 en-route to ninth overall.

2012 was an even more impressive season for the South Australian, who finished fifth overall after scoring more podiums along with his first career pole.

The 2013 season was more challenging, Slade remaining with his team through its transition to Erebus Motorsport and struggling for results as the team developed its Mercedes-Benz customer entries.

Slade returned to a Holden Commodore last year, and will be hoping the momentum built throughout 2014 will lead to a win.

Craig Lowndes first appeared on the Australian touring car radar back in 1994 when he debuted for the Holden Racing Team in the Sandown 500, stunning everyone a few weeks later by finishing second at Bathurst in partnership with Brad Jones.

After attempting to put together an open-wheeler deal overseas, Lowndes went to HRT for 1996 and was an instant hit, clinching the championship, as well as both Sandown and Bathurst.

A tough stint in International Formula 3000 in 1997 saw Lowndes return home and re-join HRT full-time until the end of 2000, claiming two more championships.

One of the biggest stories in V8 Supercar history was Lowndes’ move to Ford for 2001 but a lack of success with firstly the Gibson/00 team and then Ford Performance Racing prompted a move to Triple Eight and he has never looked back.

In 2010 he moved back into a Holden as his team made the switch from Ford and reunited with former HRT teammate Mark Skaife to win the endurance double at Phillip Island and Bathurst.

The duo recombined in 2011 and again won at Phillip Island and finished a narrow second at Bathurst, as Lowndes finished runner-up to teammate Jamie Whincup in the championship.

The following year saw him claim another Sandown 500 win partnered by Warren Luff, which helped him on his way to the runner-up position in the championship again.

Lowndes came within touching distance of the title in 2013 when the hunt for the championship crown came down to the last race of the season, but he was to finish second for the third consecutive year, making Triple Eight Race Engineering the only team to have ever finished 1-2 in the championship three years in a row.

After a strong start to the 2014 season, Lowndes suffered several misfortunes in the second half of the year, which dented his championship campaign, leaving him fourth at the end of the year.

After running full-time in V8 Supercars for the past few years, D'Alberto returns for the Pirtek Enduro Cup in 2014 to co-drive with Tim Slade in the Supercheap Auto Racing Commodore. 

After two years ‘away’ driving Fords, Tony D’Alberto and his family-owned and run team returned to the Holden side for the 2013 V8 Supercars Championship and renewed a relationship with Walkinshaw Racing.

The 2007 Dunlop Series Champion moved into a Ford Performance Racing-built Falcon in 2011 and again ran the car last season.

After starting his career in karts and initially making the move into Formula Ford, D’Alberto by-passed a lot of the traditional learning time in the junior categories, stepping straight into the Dunlop Series in a Young Lions Commodore in 2003 at the tender age of just 17.

D’Alberto continued to be a regular in the Dunlop Series, running a Wynn’s-backed car in 2004 and then establishing his own family operation in 2005, the same year he made his V8 Supercars Championship debut as an endurance driver for Tasman Motorsport.

Having finally clinched the Dunlop Series crown in 2007, D’Alberto also had his best finish at Bathurst in the Autobarn Commodore, finishing sixth alongside Steve Owen.

His 2008 season in The Bottle-O Commodore proved to be difficult, as D’Alberto found the step from the development category to the top level was indeed a steep one.

In 2009 he again competed in Bottle-O colours under the #55 Rod Nash franchise in a Commodore run by his family-owned team, with a top 10 result at Bathurst a major highlight as well as a seventh place at Sandown on the Sunday of the Norton 360 Sandown Challenge.

He ran under his own Centaur Racing banner in 2010, which changed to Wilson Security Racing in 2011 given the team’s change of sponsorship.

Second-generation driver Tim Blanchard steps back into the V8 Supercar Championship in 2015 with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport.

A former karting champion, Blanchard enjoyed many successes in state and national level Formula Ford, before going one step further with the Sonic team in 2007 to win the Australian championship.  He moved to the United Kingdom in 2008, where he finished runner-up in the British Formula Ford Championship and won a number of races throughout the season.

Blanchard made his V8 Supercar debut in 2010, behind the wheel of an ex-Craig Lowndes Falcon for Sonic Motor Racing, finishing the season runner-up to Steve Owen. He also claimed the Mike Kable Young Gun Award for the best first-year V8 Supercar driver earning him an endurance drive alongside Greg Murphy.

He continued to race full-time in the Dunlop Series and remained part of the enduro line-up until he received the call up to drive the #7 Commodore of Todd Kelly for the final rounds of 2012.

Blanchard stepped into the Championship as a full-time driver in 2013 with Dick Johnson Racing, but a difficult season saw Blanchard leave the team at the end of the year. 

After pairing with Russell Ingall in LDM’s Commodore for the 2014 PIRTEK Enduro Cup, Blanchard returns to the category as a full-time driver.

Bursting on the V8 Supercars scene in 2006 at the age of 19, Jack Perkins impressed in his debut season in the Development Series, with a third place finish in the championship.

This fantastic rookie season was topped off with a drive in the main game endurance races alongside Perkins Engineering teammate Shane Price. The youngest ever combination to compete at Bathurst unfortunately walked away with a DNF, however his efforts in the DVS did earn him a one-off appearance at the inaugural Bahrain 400 in the #39 Sirromet Holden.

Jack was then drafted in to replace Paul Dumbrell in the #11 Jack Daniel’s Commodore full-time in 2007, qualifying in the top 10 at Winton, ahead of the likes of Mark Skaife, Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup. However, a diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes saw Jack stand down from the final two races of the season to focus on his health.

He then raced in the 2008 DVS, and again contested the enduros in the #11 Commodore, netting top 10 results alongside Nathan Pretty before replacing Shane Price for the rest of the 2008 V8 Supercars Championship.

2009 again marked a full-time season for Perkins, with newly formed Kelly Racing. A tough season for the new team, running four cars, saw quality results difficult to come by, with Perkins leaving the team at the end of the season. He has since raced as an endurance co-driver in 2010 for James Rosenberg Racing, 2011 for Paul Morris Motorsport and Garry Rogers Motorsport in both 2012 and 2013. During that period he also raced in the DVS in 2011 to finish second in the championship standings, and 2013 when he finished fourth overall despite missing the first two rounds of the season.

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.

Son of former racer Steve Webb, Jonathon Webb is back to drive with Shane van Gisbergen in the team's VIP Petfoods Holden Commodore for the Pirtek Enduro Cup. 

Electing to give up full-time racing at the end of last season, to run the TEKNO Autosports team, Webb went out on a high note, scoring a podium finish at the last meeting of the year in Sydney. 

Webb Jnr broke through for his first race win in Sydney at the end of the 2010 season, though 2011 was much tougher as his team went out on its own away from Dick Johnson Racing and slowly built up its nucleus.

The Dunlop Series champion back in 2009, Webb began his career in Porsche Cup racing. He moved into the Porsche Carrera Cup when it kicked off in 2003 and remained in the one-make series through to the end of 2006.

He made his V8 Supercar debut alongside Marcus Marshall as co-driver at Sandown and Bathurst in 2006 for Paul Cruickshank Racing.

He made the move into the Dunlop Series in 2007 in an ex-Marcos Ambrose Falcon for Stone Brothers and again drove for the Glenfords/PCR team in the endurance events alongside retiring legend John Bowe.

After finishing fourth in his first season in the Dunlop Series, Webb returned for a second season in the development series in ’08 in an SBR Falcon. Victory in Race One at Bathurst and second for the weekend proved to be a season highlight before he ultimately took the 2009 crown in his third season.

He drove a Dick Johnson Racing-prepared Falcon in 2010 in his first full-time V8 Supercars Championship season.

Dean Fiore returns to V8 Supercars to co-drive with Michael Caruso in a factory Nissan, after leaving the category at the end of last season. 

He contested 2013 with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport, but with little luck with results, decided endurance driving was his best option for 2014.

The previous year he had run under his family-owned REC (Racing Entitlements Contract) at Dick Johnson Racing, but handed the REC back to V8 Supercars last year. 

His final year was his Fiore’s fifth as a full-time driver in the V8 Supercars Championship and he’s one of a crop of Western Australian drivers to join the V8 scene in recent years.

After starting his career in karting, Fiore moved into Formula Fords in his native state before becoming a challenger in the national series.

He moved to Porsche Carrera Cup and finished second in the 2008 championship to Craig Baird, with a major highlight being a dominant round victory at Bathurst.

In 2009 he made his V8 Supercar debut in the season opening Clipsal 500 in a Team Kiwi Commodore run by Paul Morris Motorsport. Eventually his family took over the TKR REC and continued to run a Commodore under theTriple F Racing banner with preparation from PMM.

In 2010 they established their own base on the Gold Coast and purchased the former Fabian Coulthard/Wilson Security Falcon to run under their own banner.

In 2011, Fiore made his first Top 10 Shootout at Queensland Raceway and ran strongly in the top 10 at the L&H 500 at Phillip Island, before running under the Jim Beam Racing banner with DJR.

He recorded his best championship finish (19th) and he and wife Kelly topped off the year by welcoming their first son, George, into the world on New Year’s Eve 2012.

One of only two repeat Champions in the history of the Dunlop Series, Steve Owen has been around V8 Supercar racing for over a decade.

He first appeared as an endurance driver with Garry Rogers Motorsport in 1999 at Bathurst, but it took until 2005 for him to nail down a full-time drive in the V8 Supercars Championship with Britek Motorsport and, even then, he was forced to miss a handful of races due to grid capacity issues.

Owen, who won the Dunlop Series in 2008 and again in 2010, really stamped his credentials down during a stint as Jamie Whincups endurance co driver at TeamVodafone in 2010.

The duo took pole at Phillip Island – the then-500km pre-cursor to Bathurst – finished runners-up at Mount Panorama and then won on the Gold Coast, and it was those results that helped propel Owen back into a full-time drive in the V8SC for the first time since 2007.

In 2011 he drove in the colours of V.I.P. Petfoods under the REC (Racing Entitlements Contract) owned by Paul Morris, as part of an expanded four-car squad at Dick Johnson Racing, following the merger of Paul Morris Motorsports with DJR.

It was that year he was involved in one of the biggest accidents in recent times of V8 Supercars, hitting the stalled Commodore of Karl Reindler on the start line at Barbagallo Raceway, which saw Reindler’s car burst into flames.

Owen finished 17th in the 2011 V8 Supercars Championship and 20th in 2012’s points.

Last year he paired with Will Davison for the PIRTEK Enduro Cup and staying at Ford Performance Racing, this time he will contest with defending Bathurst Champion Mark Winterbottom. 

Originally from Melbourne, he now is based on the Gold Coast.
