Follow Michael Caruso

Michael Caruso continues with Nissan Motorsport and has early earned a win in 2016 in Darwin, following on from his podium finish with the squad at Winton in 2015. 

Caruso finished the 2014 season in 10th overall and was the highest placed Nissan driver. It was the first time a Nissan has finished inside the top 10 in the new era of V8 Supercars racing.

With the Sydney-born driver sporting the factory colours of Nissan Nismo in 2015, Caruso is hoping to be fighting for more than just top 10s.

Caruso started his motorsport career in karting at the age of 11, winning countless titles. He stepped up to Formula Ford and Formula 3 before turning his attention to V8 Supercars racing in 2004. He competed in the Development Series, finishing second in the 2007 title before moving to the main series with Garry Rogers Motorsport.

Caruso collected a number of podiums and a race win before switching to Nissan at the start of the 2013 season.
