Don Mateo is a British online racing driver, and the fastest red-haired gentleman in Really Rubbish Racing.

Personal History

Don Mateo has been interested in cars from a very young age, and started watching motorsport regularly around 1996. His favourite types of motorsport are F1 and BTCC.

He has always wanted to be a racing driver, but sadly his parents were not rich or pushy enough to get him into karting before he could walk, so he has largely had to console himself with living out his fantasy through video games. The first racing game he owned was TOCA Touring Car Championship, and over the years he has been an avid player of many other titles including Gran Turismo and most recently Forza Motorsport. His greatest achievement in a racing game to date was to get all gold cups in the B licence in Gran Turismo 2, earning himself a Spoon S2000 as a prize car.

His real-life racing career has been rather more limited, but he was part of the winning team in a karting endurance event at university, and in 2011 took part in a grass karting event using a friend's kart. He had hoped to compete in more grass karting events in 2012, but this plan did not come to fruition. His last competitive outing was against fellow Really Rubbish Racer Ratonedge on the kart circuit at Knockhill during the 2012 BTCC weekend, although he honestly can't remember who won.

In October 2011 Don Mateo joined Really Rubbish Racing, seeking a group of like-minded individuals to race against. He has often raced for his own team, Team Diablo, but also joined with fellow rookies PJ and RareDevil666 at Goteki 45 for his first full season, and went on to form PSP Motorsports with fellow Lobby 2 regular nOc75 to compete in Season 7. As well as driving for the two teams he founded, he spent a season driving for Firecruiser Racing Team in International Masters of Formula R 2.0, and joined Howler Racing for Hyper Brazilian Tourismo Mestres.

Racing History

Career Highlights

Don Mateo's first official race with Really Rubbish Racing was in the second round of the 4za Motorsport Championship at the Camino Viejo.

He scored his first championship points in Round 3 of HGTM at Road America, where he finished 11th. He followed that up with his first top ten finish in the feature race of the same event, where he finished 10th.

From MEMES onwards, until the end of the Xbox era, the club ran a 2 lobby system for most races. His first lobby victory was in Round 9 of MEMES at Camino Viejo. He was 11th in the overall standings in that race.

His best qualifying position is 2nd, which he achieved in Round 22 of OSCAR.

His first win came in the 5th race of Merry Crashmas 2 on Race Driver GRiD. However, this victory came about because all of the other drivers wrecked their cars and he was the only car left running. Still, a win is a win. He came 4th overall in the event which is also his highest classification in a special event.

He finally scored his first podium on Forza in the final race of Season 12.

His highest classification in a championship is 2nd, which he achieved in NASCARRR XS Runoff. It was a very strong season for him overall, as he only failed to finish inside the top ten once, and also scored his first fastest lap in Round 5.

His 100th race start was in the 3rd race of TURD, and his 150th race start was Round 11 of the Lotus Exige World Cup. He started his 200th race in race 3 of Spring Break 2014, and his 250th in race 1 of IMFR Brazilian Grand Prix. He hit 300 starts at the Jacarepagua round of HBTM.
