Unfortunately, his F1 career was short lived when a rear wing failure caused him to crash at high speed in Monza, in 2002. It was a crash that almost ended not only his career, but his life.

It was a long recovery, but Courtney was soon back in a race car, this time in the Japanese F3 Championship, which he won in his debut year in 2003. He then spent the next two years racing in the Japanese GT Series.

Longing to return to Australian shores, Courtney signed as a co-driver with the Holden Racing Team for the 2005 Supercars endurance season alongside Jim Richards.

The following year he scored a full-time drive with Stone Brothers Racing and he quickly proved his ability in a touring car by finishing on the podium at the Bathurst 1000 and winning the 2006 Mike Kable Rookie of the Year award.
