Adam Macrow (born 23 November 1978, in Victoria) is a professional race car driver now living in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Starting in Karts in 1985 winning two National titles and ten Victorian titles. 1995 he moved to Formula Vee, then Formula Ford in 1996, winning the National Championship in 1998.
A brief stint in Formula Holden, he started V8 Supercars in 1998 for Tony Longhurst Racing, a prize for winning the Australian Formula Ford Championship. Probably his major achievement in Supercars was winning the Fujitsu V8 Supercars Series in 2006. Also a fifth place at the Sandown 500 and a third place at the Bathurst 1000 for Triple Eight Race Engineering in 2005 really established him as a capable co-driver. He stepped into the Team Kiwi Racing Falcon in 2007, after Paul Radisich was still recovering from an accident at Bathurst in 2006. For the Bathurst 1000 and Sandown 500 he raced the Ford Falcon BF of Britek Motorsport for the second year driving with Jason Bright.
Macrow's younger brother Tim, who also races, won the 2007 Australian Drivers' Championship.
He currently works as a driver coach for Borland Racing Developments and Owns AMR Kartsport, which specialises in engine, chassis and driver development.
He now resides on the mornington peninsula with his new girlfriend Sandy Gilchrist.
