Steven Doherty: U.S. GT Academy 2012 Champion

GT AcademyMotorsports 32 December 7, 2012 by

Steven Doherty of Cherry Valley, Illinois was announced as the North American winner of GT Academy 2012 during the finale of this year’s competition on Spike TV.

A registered GTPlanet member since March of 2011, “BICDRIVER49” came from second on the grid during the dramatic last race of the competition to overcome pole-sitter (and fellow GTPlanet member) Jett Chandler (“Jett_Racer“).

Since winning the competition in August, Steve has been quietly driving under the pseudonym of “Dan Mitchell” in various development racing series as he works towards the international competition license he’ll need to begin racing professionally in 2013.

As with all GT Academy winners, we’ll be closely following his career as he continues the evolution from gamer to a professional racing driver.

Congratulations to Steve and all of the GT Academy 2012 finalists on another great year of competition!
