Marcus Marshall (born 25 November 1978[1]) is a former Champ Car driver from Australia.

Biography

He began racing in British Formula Three, where he was generally a running outside the top ten, but took a hard-fought win in a wet race. He contested 12 races in 2005 for Derrick Walker's renamed Team Australia Racing. A lack of experience blighted his year and he scored only two top-ten finishes, the best of which was 8th in Edmonton. He was fired and replaced by Will Power prior to the season finale in Mexico City after what was described as a "serious breach of contract".

On 12 February 2006 Marshall raced for A1 Team Australia in round 8 of the A1 Grand Prix series at the Sentul International Circuit in Indonesia and finished third in the feature race, behind Canadian and Malaysian Alex Yoong.[2] He practiced in Mexico, but did not race.[3][4] During 2006, Marshall is racing full-time in the touring car V8 Supercar series for Paul Cruickshank Racing but lost his drive for 2007. He returned to Carrera Cup, taking over Peter Fitzgerald's car in the series after Fitzgerald retired at the end of the 2006 season. Marshall has also returned to V8Supercar, taking occasional drives with Matthew White Racing in the second tier series, before taking over Jack Perkins Commodore in the Jack Daniel's Racing team after Perkins was forced to step aside with a medical condition. 2008 saw a move back to Ford and Britek Motorsport.

After a frustrating 2009 season Marshall has had a new team established around him, Marcus Marshall Motorsport, to be known by the sponsored identity as IntaRacing named for primary sponsor Intabill.
