Open wheelers

Stokell first emerged into the national spotlight racing in the national Australian Formula Ford series, taking a Reynard to runner up in the 1990 title behind Russell Ingall. Stokell tried to push his career in England in the next couple of years to no real success and returned to Australian racing in 1993 driving for Malcolm Ramsay's South Australian Birrana Racing team in Formula Brabham (which reverted to its original name of Formula Holden in 1996). With Stokell leading, Birrana came to dominate the category and Stokell took a trifecta of Australian Drivers' Championships in the mid-90s. In 1994 he represented Australia in the EFDA Nations Cup but the highlight of the era was his first international victory, winning the 1995 Malaysian Grand Prix.

Sports cars

In 1998 Stokell led an importer supported team driving Lotus Elise in the Australian GT Production Car Championship and against larger and more powerful cars Stokell became a giant-killer in the Lotus, finishing sixth in the championship. Out of this effort came an invitation to join the newly formed Team Lamborghini Australia, to race Lamborghini Diablos in the Australian Nations Cup Championship. Starting in 2000, Stokell was a constant front runner in the black Diablo and again became a championship winner in 2003 and 2004. In 2005 he drove in one round of the FIA GT Championship in a Lotus placing 2nd in the G2 class.

Since then Stokell has made sporadic appearances in a variety of categories and became a competitor and entrant in the new Mini Challenge series in 2008 and became series champion in 2009. He followed that by representing Australia for the second time in the Spanish Mini Challenge in 2010 as well as finishing second in the Australian Mini Challenge in 2010.
