Michael Patrizi (born 4 May 1984 in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia) is best known as a professional race driver. Starting off in karts in his native Western Australia, he moved to Formula Ford in 2004, then to Formula BMW in Asia 2005, then UK in 2006. In 2007 he joined the competitive ranks for the Formula Three Euroseries racing for the Prema Powerteam. Since 2008 Patrizi has returned home to compete in V8 Supercars[1] and presently competes for Queensland-based team Tekno Autosports.

After two years in V8 Supercars racing for Speed FX Racing, then Paul Cruickshank Racing, Patrizi lost his seat in V8 Supercars. In February 2010 he made his debut in the Chevrolet Supercars Middle East Championship sedan series at Yas Marina Circuit, coming away with a race win.[2]

In 2010 and 2011 he drove as an endurance driver in the V8 Supercar series and did a full season in the 2011 Australian Carrera Cup Championship. In 2012 Patrizi secured the newly created second seat at Tekno Autosports and had his best ever season in V8 Supercars.
