David Wall will make his full-time debut in the 2012 V8 Supercars Championship following confirmation of his drive with Brad Jones Racing.

After co-driving with BJR for the past two years in the V8 endurance seasons, Wall replaces Karl Reindler and is set to make his full-time entry in the three-car squad alongside new team-mates Jason Bright and Fabian Coulthard.

 “I can't believe this opportunity has actually come together,” said the Sydney-based driver.

“I have worked with BJR for the past two years in the enduros so I know how committed they are.

“The whole crew and engineering team is a great group to work with and I am looking forward to putting everything I have into this opportunity. I think it is awesome to be joining Brighty, Fabian and the BJR crew.”

Wall, who was rookie of the year in the 2006 Carrera Cup Championship, won back-to-back Australian GT Championships in 2009 and 2010.

Security company, Wilson Security, who sponsored Tony D'Alberto Racing last year, will be the primary backer of Wall's #21 Commodore, with additional support from Payce, Paynter Dixon and Astrontech.

Wilson Security CEO John McMellan, also announced additional branding presence on all the BJR cars this year. Speaking about the deal, he said: “2012 will see Wilson Security both further expand and consolidate its presence within V8 Supercars.

“We've always focused on young, developing drivers like Wall who are traditionally with non-factory teams because, in business, we know you need a level of quality 'personal' service where the customer deals with the decision maker.

“Having three of the cars that we will be associated with in 2012 together is also an obvious real positive for us.”

Wall will have his first opportunity to drive his new car on 11 February at Sandown, at the V8 Supercars' official test day.
