How Rad Are You: Ryan Dalziel

How Rad Are You: Ryan Dalziel 

Meet Ryan, one of the most successful sports car drivers of his generation! He's currently competing in the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship in the Prototype Class. 

Where are you from?

Scotland

Describe yourself in 3 words:

Fun - Competitive - Respectful

What's the best part about your sport?

The competition, and getting to work as a team. Oh and driving race cars really fast is pretty fun too!

What’s the single most important factor associated with winning?

Knowing that it took a team and not one person to achieve that win.

Favourite track(s)?

Le Mans for the global. Long Beach for Street course. Road America for permanent course.

Do you have any advice for young athletes that aspire to become pro drivers?

Never close a door. Never turn away an opportunity to drive something new. Never have tunnel vision as there are so many series to race so don't be one sighted.

What is one major challenge that you’ve had to overcome in your career? How did you overcome it?

In 2008 I found out my teammate was a Ponzi scam, he stole money from myself, my team owner and I lost everything, including my job when the team folded. I regrouped and came back stronger. I learnt from that experience, if it's too good to be true it usually is.

What does the word "Rad" mean to you?

It's the Rad in Moradness of course.

JUST FOR FUN:

What’s your guiltiest pleasure?

Ice Cream.

What’s something you wish you didn’t spend so much money on?

Dining out.

Who’s one person you think everyone should be following on social media?

Shameless plug for my own company Race Car Coaches haha.

Which Moradness hat is your favourite? 

Love the new Sticker Tire hat.
