Richie Stanaway

Overview

Richie Stanaway moves to Garry Rogers Motorsport in 2019 for his second Supercars season, following a difficult rookie campaign with Tickford Racing.

The New Zealand Formula Ford champion in 2009, Stanaway went on to be champion in the German ADAC Formula Masters series the following year.

He was German Formula 3 champion in 2011, before progressing to win races in GP3 and reach the podium in Formula Renault 3.5, his ’12 program in the latter curtailed by a back injury.

A step up to Formula 1’s major support category GP2 – now known as Formula 2 – in 2015 netted two race wins, including the feature race victory in Monaco.

Stanaway’s tin-top experience includes a season in the Porsche SuperCup with the DAMS team in 2013, the year he joined Aston Martin as a factory GT driver.

He was part of the British manufacturer’s GTE efforts in the World Endurance Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours until 2017, taking pole in the GTE Pro class for the French classic in ’15.
