Follow Fabian Coulthard

Coulthard started his career in karts before moving into Formula Ford in NZ. A trip to the Australian Grand Prix support races at Albert Park in 2002 proved his worth, he then jetted to England to compete in Formula Renault.

Coulthard joined the Porsche Carrera Cup, finishing third and best rookie in 2004, then was crowned champ in 2005.

He signed to drive with Paul Morris Motorsports, sharing a car with Alan Gurr and Steve Ellery in 2006/2007.

In 2008 he linked with countryman Paul Cruickshank and an ex-Craig Lowndes BF Falcon and finished in the top 10 on six separate occasions.

In 2009 he returned with PCR and a brand new Triple Eight-built FG Falcon taking the car to his first-ever podium finish at Symmons Plains before moving across to Walkinshaw Racing in 2010 for two seasons, then joining BJR in 2012.

2013 proved to be a breakthrough year for Coulthard – two pole positions and twelve podium finishes. His sixth place finish in the drivers championship was a career best.

Coulthard continued his momentum in 2014 scoring 24 top ten finishes, three pole positions and six podiums.

Last year was highlighted with his first win at a street circuit at the season opening Clipsal 500, and this season he heads to DJR Team Penske in hope of yet again being a title threat.
