DD2 Masters - Michael Stephen

Michael Stephen is one of the most successful competitors in the history of South African motorsport! Now aged 36, he has racked up a total of 12 South African Motorsport titles. Seven of those titles are in karting, while the rest have been earned on the main circuit in sedan cars. He is a three-time SA production Car champ (2011, 2012 and 2013), the reigning Global Touring Car champion and is currently leading the SA GTC 2017 series, driving as ever in an Audi.

Port Elizabeth-born Michael started kart racing at the age of eight, and comes from a racing family. His father Roger (and Michael’s race engineer) is a former kart racer and an experienced Clerk of the Course in local racing. His uncle Neil and cousins Jonathan and Geoff race a highly modified Golf in Eastern Cape championship events.

Professionally, Michael is a highly qualified engineer, and currently runs the Terry Moss Racing Team, with multiple racing activities. He is an active sportsman, competing in triathlons and mountain biking, and his happily married with young children.

Michael is a double winner of the DD2 Masters SA Championship, and in 2015 he came within one corner of winning the World Championship DD2 crown, when he was punted off the circuit.
