Supercars main gamer turned PIRTEK Enduro Cup regular Dean Fiore will contest the Dunlop Super2 Series for the first time in 2018.

The West Aussie raced in Formula Ford and Porsche Carrera Cup, finishing second to Craig Baird in the Porsche class in 2008.

That was followed by a step up to Supercars in 2009, in what was initially entered as Team Kiwi Racing but quickly reverted to his family’s Triple F Racing, run by Paul Morris Motorsport.

Triple F went it alone in 2010 with a Falcon, Fiore spending two seasons in that before joining Dick Johnson Racing in ’12 – recording his best championship result of 19th – and Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport in ’13.

Since then, he has been an enduro regular with Michael Caruso and Nissan Motorsport, taking his maiden Supercars podium at the Gold Coast in 2014.

In addition to outings in Carrera Cup, Australian GT and the Bathurst 12 Hour in recent years, Fiore has three Super2 events to his name.

Two with MW Motorsport in 2014 included a pair of podiums at Barbagallo Raceway, and were followed by a hitout at Phillip Island in 2016 with Image Racing.

The 2016 Dunlop Super2 Series winner Garry Jacobson switches camps this year, joining Nissan outfit MW Motorsport.

Jacobson has spent the last two seasons with what is now Tickford Racing, winning the title in his first campaign and making his PIRTEK Enduro Cup debut last year alongside Jason Bright.

This will be the Victorian’s sixth Super2 season, a 2013 rookie campaign with Sonic Motor Racing followed by two – including his first podiums – with Eggleston Motorsport capped by sixth in the ’15 standings.

A national and state karting champion, Jacobson first showed tin-top potential in the 2009 Aussie Racing Car Series.

He then shifted his focus to open-wheelers, entering the Victorian Formula Ford Championship in 2010 before graduating to the national championship the following year.

Jacobson spent two seasons with Sonic, winning four races on his way to third in the championship in 2012.

Alex Rullo returns to the Dunlop Super2 Series in 2018 after his Supercars season with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport, having also explored overseas options.

Rullo made history as the youngest-ever Virgin Australia Supercars Championship driver last year, just 16 on the weekend of his debut in Adelaide.

Funnily enough, the record was previously held by Lucas’s older brother Paul Dumbrell.

The teenager’s best race result of 15th came at Bathurst, his penultimate event before splitting with the team.

His Supercars foray followed a single Super2 campaign in 2016 with LDM, finishing the year 17th in the points having taken sixth at Barbagallo Raceway and Sandown.

Rullo also contested a handful of Australian GT events in 2016, his third year of circuit racing.

In his final year of karting, finishing runner-up in the WA State Karting Championships, Rullo also won the 2014 WA Hyundai Excel Championship.

At just 14 years of age, he won a V8 Touring Car Series race at Winton in 2015, with another at Queensland Raceway following on his way to second in the points and top rookie honours.

Rullo teams up with MW Motorsport this year, driving one of its three Nissan Altimas.
