Kiwi Fabian Coulthard enjoyed a solid first season in the Lockwood Commodore with Brad Jones’ in 2012, and built on that success last year achieving his first top 10 Championship finish. 

Sixth on the points table – and just seven points away from the top five – Coulthard is set to be a force to be reckoned with in 2014. 

Born in England but raised in Auckland, New Zealand, Coulthard started his career in karts before moving into Formula Ford in his homeland.

A trip to the Australian Grand Prix support races at Albert Park in 2002 proved his worth on this side of the Tasman before Coulthard jetted to England to compete in Formula Renault.

With his budget finished, Coulthard joined the Porsche Carrera Cup, finishing third and best rookie in 2004 before returning to finish the job and be crowned champ in 2005.

Signed to drive with Paul Morris Motorsports, he shared a car with Alan Gurr and Steve Ellery in 2006 and again returned to drive the older model VZ Commodore for the team in 2007 before stepping out after Bathurst to concentrate on his ’08 assault.

He linked with countryman Paul Cruickshank and an ex-Craig Lowndes TeamVodafone BF Falcon proved to be a good choice as Coulthard finished in the top 10 on six separate occasions, including a brilliant fifth place on home soil in Hamilton, New Zealand.

In 2009 he returned with PCR in the new colours of Wilson Security with a brand new Triple Eight-built FG Falcon and took the car to his first-ever podium finish at Symmons Plains before moving across to Walkinshaw Racing for 2010.

He spent two seasons there driving under the Bundaberg banner before moving on to find a happy home in the Lockwood Racing Commodore at BJR from 2012 onwards.
