Biography

Coulthard started his career in karts before moving into Formula Ford in NZ. A trip to the Australian Grand Prix support races at Albert Park in 2002 proved his worth, he then jetted to England to compete in Formula Renault. Coulthard joined the Porsche Carrera Cup, finishing third and best rookie in 2004, then was crowned champ in 2005.

He signed to drive with Paul Morris Motorsports, sharing a car with Alan Gurr and Steve Ellery in 2006/2007. In 2008 linked with countryman Paul Cruickshank and an ex-Craig Lowndes BF Falcon and finished in the top 10 on six separate occasions.

In 2009 he returned with PCR and a brand new Triple Eight-built FG Falcon taking the car to his first-ever podium finish at Symmons Plains before moving across to Walkinshaw Racing in 2010 for two seasons, then joining BJR in 2012.

2013 proved to be a breakthrough year for Coulthard – two pole positions and twelve podium finishes. His sixth place finish in the drivers championship was a career best.

Coulthard continued his momentum in 2014 scoring 24 top ten finishes, three pole positions and six podiums. Last year was highlighted with his first win at a street circuit at the season opening Clipsal 500, and this season he heads to DJR Team Penske in hope of yet again being a title threat.

After the merger between Dick Johnson Racing and Team Penske, the team elected to enter a single Falcon FG X in last year's Championship, and by the latter part of the season were delivering on the promise that so many people had expected.

Scott Pye will be joined by Fabian Coulthard in the two car line up in 2016, a mix of experience and youth which should continue to drive the team to the front of the grid. DJR Team Penske has also expanded its depth of talent hiring ex-Prodrive engineer Adam DeBorre to work with Pye and Phil Keed to continue his relationship with Coulthard.

Whilst 2015 was a year of learning and consolidation for the Queensland based team, 2016 promises to be a year where regular top 10's and podiums are the clear goal.
