Steven Johnson News


Steven Johnson (born 6 September 1974 in Brisbane, Queensland) is an Australian V8 Supercar racing driver. He is the son of former racer and now team-owner Dick Johnson. He has competed full-time for Dick Johnson Racing since 2000.

Johnson's best season result so far was in 2001, where he led the championship for two rounds and took two round wins, including the last-ever Canberra round win, where he victory from pole position in the first race, before finishing the rest of the races in the top five. Near season's end, he dropped to fifth, still his best ever effort. Then came a period he would rather forget, finishing the 2002 and 2003 seasons well outside of the top ten. He improved to tenth in the 2004 season. He was looking for a top five in 2005, but had a poor Bathurst 1000 to place him outside the top ten.

In 2007, Steven Johnson recorded his best Bathurst 1000 result with a podium finish in third after leading late in the drama-charged closing laps as intermittent rain swept across the Mountain in an entertaining scrap with Craig Lowndes, James Courtney and Greg Murphy.
