Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport has officially confirmed that Taz Douglas will race with the team in the 2012 V8 Supercars championship.

Douglas has spent the last four years in the V8 Supercars Development Series, finishing 19th in 2011 and will fill the seat left vacant by Warren Luff, who has been recruited by TeamVodafone to co-drive alongside Craig Lowndes in the season’s endurance events.

Having competed in a number of V8 Supercars endurance races – most recently filling in for the ill Tony D'Alberto at the L&H 500 Phillip Island last year, the 28-year-old made his debut with the team at last weekend's pre-season test at Sandown. Driving an ex-Paul Morris Motorsport Triple Eight Engineering Holden Commodore, Douglas set the 22nd quickest time of the day.

Douglas' signing means the 2012 V8 Supercar entry list is now complete with all 28 full-time drivers now registered.

Former Jack Daniel's Racing V8 Supercars driver Shane Price, who drove with Brad Jones Racing in the enduros last year, also tested for the team at Sandown. It is expected Price will line up alongside Douglas as co-driver in the Sandown and Bathurst endurance races.

Running a plain white livery at the pre-season test, the team say's a new major sponsor and livery will be revealed next week.
