CareerEdit

New ZealandEdit

Born in Tauranga, Stanaway was originally from a motocross background, before making the switch to speedway at the age of twelve. Following that came a brief foray into kart racing prior to making his formula car debut in 2007 after being selected for the New Zealand SpeedSport Scholarship. He competed in the 2007/08 Formula First championship finishing third overall as the highest placed rookie.

Stanaway then made the jump to the New Zealand Formula Ford Championship with Hamilton-based, debutant team TSR Racing alongside team-mate Martin Short. Prior to National championship he raced in the winter series to prepare, winning numerous races in the process with the newly imported Mygale chassis. Stanaway won the 2008/09 New Zealand Formula Ford Championship with fourteen race wins, becoming only the second driver in history to win the title as a rookie.

He then competed in the 2009 Australian Formula Ford Championship with Adelaide-based, Team BRM, making their debut in the Formula Ford championship after a long history of Formula 3 experience. During his Australian Formula Ford campaign in April 2009, Stanaway made his debut in New Zealand's Toyota Racing Series during a one-off appearance on the Hamilton 400 street circuit, scoring both pole positions and winning both races on debut. He then had to pull out halfway through the Australian Formula Ford Championship to take up testing and racing opportunities in the ADAC Formula Masters Championship in Germany. Despite missing six of the races, Richie finished sixth place in the 2009 Australian Formula Ford Championship taking one race win and six podium finishes.

EuropeEdit

In July 2009 Stanaway took up a testing opportunity at the EuroSpeedway Lausitz with Ma-Con Motorsport, a German team competing in the ADAC Formula Masters Championship. The test was organized by Tauranga businessman Maurice O' Reilly, a past investor of New Zealand Indy 500 winner, and Indycar series champion Scott Dixon. Stanaway impressed and was offered a race seat for the remaining six races of the 2009 ADAC Formula Masters Championship held at Nürburgring, Sachsenring and Oschersleben. The required budget was raised through a group of investors and on 22 August 2009 Richie made his European debut at the famous Nürburgring circuit. During the six races, he scored two pole positions and numerous podium finishes, and following the signing of a management contract with RRT Holdings, headed by businessman Martin Reiss, the decision was made to return to contest the full ADAC Formula Masters Championship in 2010.

For the 2010 ADAC Formula Masters Championship Stanaway dominated proceedings, taking twelve race wins and finished no lower than second place throughout the whole championship. Following that he completed tests with 2010 Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup championship winning team, Koirannen Bros. Motorsport at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya, also a test with ATS-Formel 3 cup (German Formula 3) team Van Amersfoort Racing in Oschersleben, and a thorough testing program with Tech-1 racing in Formula Renault 2.0. Richie then made his racing debut in the United Kingdom, competing in the Formula Renault UK winter cup with Atech-GP which took place at Snetterton and Pembrey, he took a race win and numerous podium placings over the six race series.

Richie was then released from his management contract with Martin Reiss to then sign with Gravity Sport Management, a management group headed by Lotus-Renault Formula One team principal Eric Boullier, and contested the 2011 ATS-Formel 3 cup (German Formula 3) with Dutch team Van Amersfoort Racing. He replaced Pedro Nunes for the remainder of the 2011 GP3 Series season with the pace-setters, Lotus ART, he will begin at the penultimate round of the championship in Belgium. He finished 8th in the first race and therefore started from pole in the second, where he kept the lead and won the race.

In November 2011 Stanaway tested the new BMW M3 DTM car as one of three young drivers and then in December he tested for Formula Renault 3.5 Series team GravityCharouz Racing in the invite-only test[1] at Aragon, Spain where he topped the times on the first two days and finished the three-day test with the fastest overall time.[2]

Touring CarsEdit

He made his Supercars debut for Super Black Racing in 2016, co-driving with Chris Pither in the Pirtek Enduro Cup series. He impressed on debut in Sandown, fighting his way from a pit-stop down up to 3rd with slick tyres on a damp track. His team were caught out by a safety car and would eventually drop to 17th and one lap down. In 2017 Stanaway competed in the Sydney round of the Super2 Series, winning the final race. He then drove in the Pirtek Enduro Cup with Cameron Waters, winning the Sandown 500 from pole position. They then lead the Bathurst 1000 before an incident on a restart after the safety car, breaking the rear wing. They repaired the car and they went on to finish 16th, 3 laps down. They also finished in 2nd the first race of the Gold Coast 600, but suffered steering damage in the second race, resulting in a finish position of 21st. It was announced in early December that Stanaway will drive full-time in the Supercars Championship with Tickford Racing.
