Suellio Almeida on Podium

Sim racer turned professional race driver Suellio Almeida climbed to the second step of the podium recently at the Dubai Autodrome, during an unscheduled first outing in the Gulf Radical Cup. The content creator is a Canadian sim racing champion, driver coach and best-selling author, and now has real-world podium finishes to his name on two continents.

“Podiums lead to experiences and learning from me even while I coach others. Every new idea that sparks from my coaching or racing experience becomes a new lesson on my course,” Almeida said. “‘The Motor Racing Checklist 2.0’ is a collection of a lifetime of research, coaching, practice, reflection, and hard work. My promise for The Motor Racing Checklist is that you will become a better racing driver than you could ever imagine. Learn with my experience and that of thousands of my students and avoid bad habits to reach the top efficiently.”
