Nissan Motorsport’s best-placed driver in the 2017 championship, Michael Caruso continues in the factory-backed #23 Altima this season.

Caruso started out in karting at the age of 11, winning countless titles before stepping up to Formula Ford and Formula 3.

The Sydneysider’s attention turned to Supercars in 2004, finishing second in the Dunlop Super2 Series in ’07 to secure a step up to the main game with Garry Rogers Motorsport the following season.

A best Bathurst result of second with Lee Holdsworth and maiden race win at Hidden Valley came in 2009, with Caruso leaving to join Nissan as it entered Supercars in ’13.

In Caruso’s second season in the Altima, he took the package into the top 10 of the championship for the first time, with 10th in the standings.

He matched that result in 2016, another victory at Hidden Valley his and Nissan’s second in Supercars.

Caruso then led the way for Nissan last year, shading team owner Rick Kelly, with 13th in the points.
