Todd Hazelwood (born 25 September 1995) is an Australian motor-racing driver. He currently competes full time in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship with Matt Stone Racing in the No. 35 Holden VF Commodore. Hazelwood previously contested in the 2017 Dunlop Super2 Series with Matt Stone Racing in a VF Commodore and went on to win the series.[1]

Hazelwood won the Mike Kable Young Gun Award in 2014.[2]

In November 2018, Todd Hazelwood has confirmed that he'll move into the current Jamie Whincup Triple Eight ZB Commodore for the 2019 Supercars season.[3]

Racing career

Formula 3 Australian Drivers Championship

In 2013 Todd made his debut in the Australian Formula 3 National Championship with R-Tek Motorsport. He raced the full season with the team and finished 2nd in the Championship standings in his rookie season.

Super2 Series

Todd Hazelwood started his Development Series career by winning the Shannons Supercar Showdown in 2013 with Supercars team Prodrive Racing Australia (then Ford Performance Racing).[4] The team helped field a car for Hazelwood to race in the final round of the 2013 Dunlop V8 Supercar Series, with Minda Motorsport.

Hazelwood came back in 2014 with Matt Stone Racing driving the iSeek backed Ford FG Falcon.[5] Todd finished 8th overall, and was the highest placed rookie with four top 5 finishes and being awarded the V8 Supercars Mike Kable Young Gun Award.

In 2015 Hazelwood returned in the same car with Matt Stone Racing. Todd achieved his very first overall podium at the Sydney 500 and finished 4th overall in the series standings.

In 2016 Todd had a few changes over the offseason including changing to a Holden VF Commodore, with a Car of the Future (COTF) specification chassis.[6] Todd finished in the top 3 four times throughout the season. He finished 3rd in the series and also won the Supercars Privateers Cup for the highest placed team/driver not affiliated with a main series team.[citation needed]

In 2017 Hazelwood again drove a VF Holden Commodore from Matt Stone Racing supported by Bigmate. Todd consistently qualified and finished in the top 10 all year long. This included 14 front row starts, 13 podiums and 6 race wins. A total of three pole positions also helped Todd receive the Armor All Pole Position Award. With Todd's dominant and consistent results, Todd won the Dunlop Super2 Series Title by 95 points over Paul Dumbrell.
