Shaun Richardson Driver Bio
Shaun Richardson has been racing for twenty years where he raced ovals in the United Kingdom for the first ten years winning a few different championships.
After competing on the UK ovals he then decided to go circuit racing where he spent two years racing Porsches where he finished second in the championship during his second year of racing.
He then competed in Eurocars which are very simular to an ASA car spec frame chassis on circuits rather than ovals. In his first season he had a handful of podium finishes and finished third in the championship. In 2002, he competed in the ASACR Series which were full ASA cars running on high speed ovals.
In 2003 he had no car and very limited sponsors. His two choices were to either miss a season of racing or re-mortgage the house to buy a car and run the first two events hoping to pick up a sponsor for the rest of the season. The gamble paid off and he received the Driver Achievement Award as his finished sixth in the standings. For his achievement, he was awarded a trip to Miami-Homestead Speedway for the Sprint Cup event.
"This amazed me and from then I had a dream. While at Homestead I had talks with a few teams to try and get a drive but with no joy, so I went back to England and in 2004 we signed a two-year deal with the rock group "The Darkness" to sponsor the car and we finished third in the championship," Richardson recalled. "In 2005 we had wrecks and an engine failure and finished sixth. At the end of 2005 I tried to get a drive in the USA but still no joy but so still wanting to racing a thundering V-8. I moved to the other side of the world, and while being here I have done a year in the New Zealand V-8."
