De Pasquale is highly regarded as a future star of Supercars and joins the Shell V-Power Racing Team in 2021.

Born and raised in Victoria, De Pasquale started his motorsport career riding dirt bikes and driving karts. He won the Australian National Sprint Kart Championship in 2011 before stepping up to race in the Australian Formula Ford Championship in 2012. In just his second year racing Formula Ford at a national level, he claimed the championship title.

In 2014, he moved to Europe to race in the Formula Renault 1.6 NEC Championship and again he dominated, taking out the Championship title in his first year. He raced a second season in Europe, this time in a Formula Renault 2.0, before moving home to Australia.

Upon his return, he competed in the Dunlop Super2 Series where he scored a podium position at his first Bathurst race. He also finished fourth in the Driver’s Championship in his second year in the category.

Having proved his on-track talent across multiple categories, he joined the Supercars Championship as a rookie in 2018 and scored his first race win at the Darwin Triple crown in 2020.

Heading into his fourth Supercars season in 2021, De Pasquale is hungry to become one of the sport’s best.
