Known for his successful YouTube channel ‘SuperGT’, Steve Alvarez Brown is jumping up to real race cars for the final round of Radical’s SR1 Cup, 17th-18th September 2022.
His gaming videos of Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport have allowed him to grow a YouTube community of over 750,000 subscribers and a fanbase of over 90,000 on Instagram. He is also a member of Team Quadrant – an esports team formed by F1 driver Lando Norris.
In between creating content for the online YouTube and Twitch communities, Steve has also been karting since the age of 11, and has raced in a number of different karting championships.
Speaking of his upcoming race, Steve said ‘I’m very excited to have the opportunity to race in the Radical SR1 Championship – any chance to race in a real car on a real track is an exciting proposition.
Donington is a track I’ve not been to before, and the Radical a car I’ve not yet driven so I’m sure there will be some learning to do. I’ll be aiming to give it my absolute best shot whilst enjoying the experience as much as possible.’
Steve will race alongside over 30 other Radical’s at the Donington GP circuit, including Valour Racing’s Daryl DeLeon Taylor who is currently leading the SR1 Cup championship. While being Radical’s “entry level race car”, the SR1 is a full-on purpose-built race car generating lap times faster than GT4 cars costing three times as much. The Radical SR1 Cup is the complete “motorsport starter kit” making it the UK’s most compelling entry point into circuit racing.
Radical’s UK Motorsport Manager, Nicole Van der Walt said, ‘we’re excited to learn that Steve is joining our grid for the penultimate race of the season. He’s obviously very talented in the sim racing and virtual world, so it’ll be interesting to see how he performs on track.’
Round six of the SR1 Cup will be livestreamed from Donington on Radical Motorsport’s YouTube channel, and updates can be seen across both Radical Motorsport and Brown’s personal social channels.
