Biography

There's nothing like making a big impact in your first V8 Supercar race and that's just what new Ford sensation Marcos Ambrose did at the 2001 Australian Grand Prix. He claimed pole position in the dying minutes of qualifying - upsetting pole king Mark Skaife - set a fastest lap, biffed Steven Johnson off the road and copped a $2,500 fine stewards. It wasn't a dream start but one that served notice that the 24 year-old Tasmanian 'Devil' Racer is quick, not overawed, and ready to stick his car on the line to win.

In just a few short years he's managed to compile an impressive CV. Leaving Australian to chase the elusive F1 dream in England in 1996, he learnt quickly and won regularly. He out-qualified Jenson Button in the 1998 British Formula Ford Festival and did the same to Kimi Raikonnen in '99 (they're both in F1 now) and was the 1999 European Formula Ford Champion.
