Kiwi international Matt Halliday has been confirmed as Dean Fiore’s co-driver at Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport for the inaugural Pirtek Enduro Cup.

Halliday, who regularly competes with WRT Audi in the Blancpain Endurance Series, drove with Fiore last year at Dick Johnson Racing.

Halliday’s appointment ensures that LDM will head to Sandown, Bathurst and the Gold Coast with two experienced co-drivers following earlier confirmation that Paul Morris will partner Scott Pye.

The 34-year-old Halliday has started the Bathurst 1000 in eight of the last of the last nine years, lining up with Larkham Motorsport (2004-2005), Ford Performance Racing (2006-2007), Britek Motorsport (2008), Brad Jones Racing (2010) and DJR (2011-2012).

Fourth in the 2010 race, where he paired with Jason Bright, stands as the US-based Kiwi’s only top 10 finish.

LDM conducted a its first test day of the season at Winton on Tuesday, where it was joined by Red Bull Racing Australia driver and engineer combination Jamie Whincup and Mark Dutton.

The team campaigns two Triple Eight Race Engineering built Holdens but has struggled to make the most of its equipment so far this year.

Fiore and Pye sit 20th and 26th in the points standings respectively after 24 races.

Halliday is the last co-driver to be confirmed for the 28 cars that will complete all three Enduro Cup races.

Triple Eight will also run a Wildcard entry in the Bathurst 1000, but is not expected to confirm its line-up until next month.
