Jonny Reid lands 2013 DJR V8 Supercars ride

Jonny Reid on pole in New Zealand A1GP raceA1GP race winner Jonny Reid will race full-time in V8 Supercars after sealing a deal with Dick Johnson Racing for 2013.

Reid won seven times in total and helped New Zealand to finish runner-up in A1GP in both 2006 and 2007.

He has since raced in a multitude of series including Indy Lights and the Australian Porsche Carrera Cup championship, in which he finished runner-up and with nine wins to his credit last year.

Reid, who made three V8 appearances for Tekno Autosports last year, said: "My aim since 2011 was to focus on a full time V8 Supercars drive.

"This is a world class series and after a great run in the enduros last year I was very hungry to try and step up.

"To be able to begin my full-time driving with a DJR is fantastic.

"Once we knew the deal could progress and Wilson Security came on board the #12 DJR car it was full steam ahead.

"I am really looking forward to rolling the car out at Clipsal."

Team owner Dick Johnson believes Reid will be the "perfect fit" for the team after his son Steven stepped down from driving to help manage the team.

Reid will partner 25-year-old Tim Blanchard at DJR in 2013.

"With Steve stepping down we had a number of younger drivers in our sights and Jonny was the stand out," he said.

"He has raced in a multitude of classes all over the world and has had great success.

"With renewed and enthusiastic sponsorship support we can really work on bringing these two blokes to the front of the V8 Supercar grid."
