Michael Patrizi (born 4 May 1984) is an Australian V8 Supercar driver who currently drives the #91 Holden Commodore VE for Tekno Autosports.

V8 Supercar careerEdit

Patrizi made his V8 Supercar debut at the 2008 Eastern Creek event, with the new Ford Rising Stars Racing team in the #777 Ford. Patrizi finished the season in 26th position.

Patrizi moved to the new second seat at Paul Cruickshank Racing for 2009 in the #333 Ford. He placed 27th in the final standings.

He later lost his full-time drive when PCR lost the use of the REC, which they had leased from Jason Bright. Patrizi instead joined Triple F Racing for the 2010 endurance races, and paired up with team owner/driver Dean Fiore. He returned to the team for the 2011 endurance events.

Patrizi was then signed by Tekno Autosports to drive their second car, the #91 Commodore. The team could not find a full-season sponsor and was forced to take sponsorship on a race-to-race basis. Patrizi finished 18th in the championship.
