BRAND AMBASSADOR - FABIAN COULTHARD
At Kneetly we’re so happy and all have great big smiles on our faces.
Why you may ask? Well we have just been told that Supercar Championship driver Fabian Coulthard has joined our team as our very first Brand Ambassador and as we say at Kneetly that’s “Happy Days”.
Fabian has a long list of achievements and race wins to his name. He is one of the most well-known drivers in Australia and just happens to be a hell of a nice bloke. When we all met Fabian recently, he showed so much enthusiasm for Kneetly and when he used our app instantly the look of complete and utter joy came over his face. “Wow” he said “this is just what I’ve been waiting for”.
He began his racing career in karts at only six years of age and it wasn't long before he reached
the pinnacle of the category, where he won seven New Zealand karting titles. He then graduated to
the New Zealand Formula Vee Scholarship and finished runner up aged just 12.
In 2010, He teamed up with Andrew Thompson who also joined the Walkinshaw Racing fold, a year
that will be remembered for his spectacular first lap crash at the Bathurst 1000.
2013 was a standout year for Fabian. The introduction of V8 Supercars "Car of the Future" proved
a winner in many ways for the kiwi star. Pole positions at the Texas and Phillip Island rounds
and race wins in Texas and a double at Winton gave Fabian his best V8 Supercar season to date.
2014 and 2015 continued to be stellar years for Fabian, with a multitude of wins and podium finishes.
2017 provides Fabian with a new challenge, being his second year with the iconic DJR Team Penske
and he is felling good heading into season opener at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide from March 2nd – 5th.
Keep your eye on Kneelty in the coming months to see just what fun we are having with Fabian and
how his 2017 season’s going.
