Follow Tony D'Alberto

After starting his career in karts and initially making the move into Formula Ford, Tony D’Alberto by-passed a lot of the traditional learning time in the junior categories, stepping straight into the Dunlop Series in a Young Lions Commodore in 2003 at the tender age of just 17.

D’Alberto continued to be a regular in the Dunlop Series, running a Wynn’s-backed car in 2004 and then establishing his own family operation in 2005, the same year he made his V8 Supercars Championship debut as an endurance driver for Tasman Motorsport.

Having finally clinched the Dunlop Series crown in 2007, D’Alberto also had his best finish at Bathurst in the Autobarn Commodore, finishing sixth alongside Steve Owen.

His 2008 season in The Bottle-O Commodore proved to be difficult, as D’Alberto found the step from the development category to the top level was indeed a steep one.

In 2009 he again competed in Bottle-O colours under the #55 Rod Nash franchise in a Commodore run by his family-owned team, with a top 10 result at Bathurst a major highlight as well as a seventh place at Sandown on the Sunday of the Norton 360 Sandown Challenge.

D’Alberto ran under his family licence from 2010 until ’13, before stepping into a co-driver role with Walkinshaw Racing for the next two years.

He switched to DJR Team Penske in 2016, co-driving with Scott Pye, before moving into Fabian Coulthard's car this year.
