Casey Stoner Net Worth $14 Million
Casey Stoner began competing as a four-year-old, and his talent was evident from an early age, winning numerous state titles by the age of 14. In 1999, he and his parents moved to England, and the following year Stoner started on a 125 cc, recording two wins until 2004. In the meantime, Casey moved to also participate in the 250cc category, racing for Aprilia, and had five wins. In the 2005 season he finished second overall with 254 points, and then in 2006, Casey joined the Moto GP championship and the team, Honda.
Stoner failed to get a win in his rookie year, but he managed to finish second at the Turkish Grand Prix and was 8th in the general standings in 2006. In 2007, Casey signed a deal with Ducati, racing alongside Loris Capirossi with the 800cc Ducati Desmosedici GP7. Thanks to ten fantastic wins and an additional six poles, Stoner won the MotoGP title 125 points ahead of the second-placed Dani Pedrosa. This success helped Casey to increase his net worth significantly, making him a millionaire. The next season, Stoner finished second by 280 points behind Valentino Rossi, but then had health issues that reflected on his form, so the following two years were quite unfruitful for the Australian.
In 2011, Stoner switched to the Repsol Honda Racing Team and won his second World Championship, coincidentally at his home track at Phillip Island, Australia, leaving his nearest rival Jorge Lorenzo 65 points behind. In the end of the 2012 season, Casey announced his retirement after finishing third in the championship, stating that he was no longer interested in competing in motorcycle racing. Following his brief returns to the circuit, Stoner was inducted into the Sports Australia Hall of Fame in October 2015, and currently he serves as the test rider for Ducati.
Regarding his personal life, Casey Stoner dated Adriana Tuchyna from 2005, married her in 2007, and has a daughter with her. In 2009, Stoner was diagnosed with lactose intolerance, after experiencing sickness and tiredness during that season, but has now recovered well.
