Warren Luff

Warren is a multiple Australian motor racing champion. He has raced all around the world and has competed 16 times in the V8 Supercar Endurance Series. He has raced in the Carrera Cup championship three times, finishing second in 2014.

He is one of Australia’s most respected Supercar co-drivers having partnered Craig Lowndes to first place at the 2012 Sandown 500, third at the Bathurst 1000 then 1st in the 2013 V8 Supercar Pirtek Cup. He has also taken Bathurst podiums with good mate Garth Tander and won the 2015 Enduro Cup, resulting in Luff becoming the first driver to win the award twice.

After his Bathurst podium in 2020 with Chaz Mostert, he now has the distinction of the most Bathurst podiums without a win, but he plans to fix that soon!

In 2021 he is looking forward to continuing his Supercars Enduro career with WAU and coaching the MR stars of the near future.
