Danny Steyn

Danny Steyn grew up in South Africa and started out racing motocross, supercross and enduro events.
Success came quickly and in 1980 he became a sponsored Blue Stratos / Kawasaki racer.

Unfortunately a serious crash at a regional race resulted in a week long coma that ended his motocross career in 1987.

After moving to the USA in 1993, an invitation to attend an AMG Driving Academy event got Danny’s passion in motorsports rekindled.

Danny started with the Panoz Racing Series in 2006 and then tried his hand in Spec Miata’s in 2007, racing with OPM Autosports. He is sponsored by Adept Studios, Rossini Racing Engines, Carbotech Brakes and Traqmate.

Danny has been a front runner in the National Spec Miata and Super Touring Light classes scene for several years and has racked up a very impressive record with more than eighty race wins and over 140 podiums at tracks across the USA. He has won 10 Championship titles, and set fifteen track records at 10 tracks. Click here to visit the Danny Steyn Racing website and see his popular YouTube videos.
