2012 Season

The 2012 ST Racing livery, designed by Tom Eley.
For the 2012 Superleague season, ST Racing started the season with high hopes, following the acquisition of Tom Eley who had shown good potential at the pre-season testing. Tom raced at the first three events, picking up 3 points. Team Principal, Mark Fuller drove the No.2 car, but suffered numerous technical issues with his car in the first half of the season. It was a difficult season for Fuller and he ended up scoring no points in the season for the first time. Reliability in the driver line-up added to the team's woes, with Scott Bennett and Geoff Meade racing for the team. These difficulties resulted in the team having it's worst year in the Superleague, scoring a total of 4 points and finishing last in the constructors championship.



2013 Season

For the 2013 Superleague season, Mark Fuller announced that both himself and Myles Dixon would drive for the team. Danish Supercup driver Morten Wernersen was unveiled as Test/Reserve Driver. Unfortunately, the line-up failed to produce any points for the team until the 2013 Turkish Grand Prix where Fuller scored the first point of the campaign. By the the 2013 Belgian Grand Prix, Dixon has become disinterested in the Superleague following poor result after poor result and left to be replaced by newcomer Harley Hamnett.

The Australian signaled a new hope for the season as, on debut, Hamnett scored a 10th place; increasing the team total sevenfold. The team only failed to score at a further two events with the 2013 United States Grand Prix providing the team's best finish of the year, a 9th position through Hamnett once again. By the end of the year, the points haul had brought them above defunct outfit Halcyon Racing and saw them finish 12th in the Constructors' championship; a place better than 2013. However an all-time high of 8th seemed very far away.

The hopes of the team were not helped by the confirmation that star driver Hamnett would not be staying at the team for 2014.

2014 Season

For 2014, Fuller announced that he would (once again) drive for the team but this year would be partnered by Dutchman, Calvin Hermse. Formula Challenge and International Touring Cup driver James Kirk was revealed as the team's Test/Reserve driver for the year.

World GT

2012 Season

For the first time in ST's history at GPVWC, the outfit decided to enter a non-Formula competition; the 2012 Winter GT Series season. Competing under the guise of RS Racing, the squad of Mark Fuller and Vinodh Moodley used the Nissan GT-R and Aston Martin DBRS respectively to take a valuable 5 points in the Belgian GT Cup and the American GT Cup taking them to 17th in the Teams' standings.

2013 Season

The name of 'ST Racing' returned as the team entered the 2013 World GT Series season. Initially using the Porsche 997 with Scott Bennett, the returning Fuller switched cars to the Lamborghini Gallardo when new Dutch driver Perry Vink entered the championship, replacing the outgoing Bennett. Over the nine rounds of the championship, the team scored 15 points and ended the Teams' championship in 21st.

Masters

2013 Season

The ST Racing Masters Megane is revealed.
In 2013, ST chose the enter the Masters for the first time. The ever-present Mark Fuller continued to lead from the front for the team and revealed Theo van den Brink as his team mate. The partnership would not last long however as personal difficulties for van den Brink would lead to Christoph Lichtenstein and Vinodh Moodley replacing the Dutchman. The inconsistency in line-up would partly be responsible for a dismal performance leaving the team rock-bottom of the Teams' championship.
