Two-thirds of the 2012 Brad Jones Racing driver line-up has now been secured, with Fabian Coulthard signing to join the Albury-based squad earlier this week.

Coulthard, currently at Walkinshaw Performance, will drive alongside Jason Bright with the third seat yet to be decided.

No decisions have been made as to which V8 Supercar franchise Coulthard will compete under.

Coulthard was born in Britain but brought up in New Zealand. He is a versatile driver having successfully competed in karting, Formula Ford, Formula Renault and Carrera Cup before moving to V8 Supercars.

Fabian Coulthard
"I'm very happy with the decision. What's happened over the last few months [at Walkinshaw Performance] has been purely a commercial process and it's nice to be able to move on; I'm happy to still be racing.

"The deal's only been signed a couple of days. It's been a whirlwind process but now I can start thinking about the future. I've got a lot of unfinished business. I want to win races and, teaming up with Brighty, I think we'll make a pretty strong combination and bounce ideas off each other.

"It's going to be good at BJR; my relationship with those guys goes back many years to when I bought my Formula Ford from the Jones family and I'm really looking forward to getting up to Albury and meeting all the mechanics and engineers."
